Police arrested two people after they were allegedly found smoking marijuana in a downtown bar.

Robert Schert, 47, Coon Rapids, Minn., and Rachel Goldbert, 26, Evanston, Ill., were charged Sunday with possession of marijuana.

According to complaints from the Iowa City police, officers were performing a bar check at the Yacht Club, 13 S. Linn St., when they walked into the back and allegedly found Schert and two others passing around a small metal pipe with marijuana in it.

The report said Schert put the pipe in his pocket when officers approached.

After officers asked for the pipe, Goldbert provided a pipe, and officers located the first pipe in Schert’s pocket after a consent to search.

The search also yielded a small wooden box with marijuana in it in his pocket.

Possession of a controlled substance is a serious misdemeanor, punishable by up to one year in jail and a maximum fine of $1,875.
