An independent filmmaker and actress was arrested on marijuana charges Thursday in La Salle County.
The La Salle County State's Attorney's Felony Enforcement unit took into custody Suzannah L. Bowser, 60, saying they found her with more than 11 pounds of marijuana on Interstate 80. Bowser was released from the county jail Friday after $15,000 cash bond was posted for her.
Because of the amount of marijuana involved, Bowser faces a charge that is punishable by a mandatory prison term; probation is not an option. At her first court hearing Friday, Bowser said she planned to hire a private attorney. Her next hearing was set for Thursday, March 1.
Bowser is a writer, actress, musician and moviemaker, according to online information. One of Bowser's films, "Flea," released in 2010, starred Barry Williams, who played "Greg" in the television show The Brady Bunch.
