The 29-year-old Prairie Village man arrested Monday after neighbors heard him shooting guns in his backyard is facing two drug charges in Johnson County District Court.

William Harrison Moss remains in Johnson County Jail with bond set at $50,000 four days after his arrest on Homestead Drive. Police searched the residence after responding to a shots-fired call and found a significant amount of marijuana and evidence suggesting a pot growing operation.

Moss currently stands charged with possession of drug paraphernalia and level three possession with intent to distribute. That charge suggests police found somewhere between 25 and 450 grams of marijuana on the property.

A Johnson County District Attorney’s Office employee said it was possible he could face additional charges — including charges for discharging a firearm — after his case is assigned to a prosecutor. Moss made his first appearance in court Wednesday, and has a no-go preliminary hearing set for March 26.

Moss’s father, William Irvin Moss, was taken to Wyandotte County Jail after police came to the Prairie Village home Monday because Kansas City, Kan., officials had a bench warrant out for him. A municipal court clerk in Wyandotte County said the bench warrant was for an environmental violation, which could be related to something as simple as storage of garbage on a property. The elder Moss has a court date set in Wyandotte County for March 25. He is not longer in Wyandotte County jail, and does not face any charges in Johnson County at this point.
