Coralville police executed a search warrant that reportedly resulted in a confession of drug sales last month.

Kelly Stapleton, 25, and Cody Ruth, 21, both of 809 Fairview Drive, were charged with possession of a controlled substance. Stapleton was also charged with a controlled-substance violation and Ruth was charged with possession of drug paraphernalia.

According to complaints from Coralville police, officers executed a narcotics search warrant at their home, yielding marijuana, packing materials, and a digital scale.

The report said Stapleton admitted under Miranda that the two had been selling marijuana and cocaine from the residence for at least one year.
