Iowa City police arrested three roommates on drug charges last week, including a mother and son.

Devon Marquis Williams, 20, 755 Bayridge Drive, was charged March 31 with possession of drug paraphernalia and possession of marijuana.

Christine Wilmoth, 42, 755 Bayridge Drive, was charged March 31 with two counts of possession of a controlled substance.

Scott Hoff Jr., 22, 755 Bayridge Drive, was charged March 31 with possession of a controlled substance, OWI, and keeping a drug house.

According to police reports, police executed a search warrant at the home, yielding marijuana, pipes, packaging material, a digital scale, prescription pills, and evidence of the manufacture of methamphetamine in Wilmoth’s bathroom. The report said Wilmoth allows her adult son and other adults that live in the residence to use drugs in the home.

Officers found Williams in possession of marijuana and drug paraphernalia, the report said.

While police were conducting the search warrant, Hoff entered, and appeared to be under the influence of marijuana. Hoff admitted to smoking and told police he had driven to pick his girlfriend up from work.

While executing the search warrant, police said they found a bag of marijuana on Hoff’s desk shelf.

Hoff also told officers he owned a bong, and all three residents admitted to smoking marijuana in the home.
