Iowa City police have charged two Iowa City men with allegedly selling a stolen handgun.

Letty Nash, 24, 2140 Davis St., was charged Wednesday with trafficking in stolen weapons and child endangerment. Andrew Pearson, 25, 2140 Davis St., was charged with possession of firearms as a felon and intent to deliver marijuana.

According to Iowa City police, Pearson, a convicted felon, and Nash attempted to sell a stolen 9-mm handgun to an undercover officer.

Nash’s 4-month-old daughter was present during the deal.

Officers allegedly located 42.5 grams of marijuana on the scene. The police reported that they had arranged a controlled purchase of marijuana from the residence on two previous occasions.

Trafficking in stolen weapons and possession of a firearm by a felon are both Class D felonies, generally punishable by up to five years in prison and a maximum fine of $7,500.
