Police have charged two University of Iowa students with possession of marijuana after receiving a Crime Stoppers tip.

Lee Henneberry, 20, 929 Iowa Ave. Apt. 15, was charged Thursday with possession of marijuana with intent to deliver, a drug tax-stamp violation, keeping a drug house, and gathering for use of drugs.

Justin Downs, 21, 702 N. Van Buren St., was charged with possession of a controlled substance.

Iowa City police responded to a Crime Stoppers tip Wednesday at 929 Iowa Ave. Apt. 15 around 11:30 p.m. Officers reportedly smelled marijuana coming from the apartment and saw a water pipe on the living room table.

Henneberry, the apartment resident, reportedly declined a consent search.

Police said that after obtaining a search warrant, officers allegedly discovered 0.75 pounds of high-grade marijuana, $3,179 in cash, a digital scale, packaging materials, and other objects used in selling drugs throughout Henneberry's bedroom and common living areas.

Downs, a visitor to the apartment, reportedly admitted to smoking marijuana at the residence earlier in the evening.

Possession of marijuana with intent to deliver is a Class D felony punishable by up to five years in prison and a maximum fine of $7,500.
