TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) -- A Johnson County couple who were the focus of a failed marijuana search is supporting proposed legislation making it easier to get police investigative reports.

The failed search for marijuana two years ago at the Leawood home of Robert and Adlynn Harte launched the Hartes on a crusade for documents to shed light on what led to the search, which produced no charges or evidence. The Hartes spent $25,000 working to get the records.

The Kansas City Star reports (http://bit.ly/1hfNSXa ) the Hartes appeared before lawmakers Wednesday asking them to make public police documents called probable-cause affidavits, which are used to justify arrests or searches.

The Hartes support a bill introduced by Shawnee Republican Rep. John Rubin, which would require prosecutors to convince a judge that the records should remain private.
