Iowa City police have arrested two local men after they allegedly tried to buy drugs from undercover detectives.

Todd Schockemoehl, 27, 720 N. Dubuque St. Apt. 11, and Moktosi Rukundo, 24, 2631 Rushmore Drive, were charged April 22 with solicitation to commit a felony.

Police reports said Schockemoehl and Rukundo allegedly sent text messages requesting to purchase marijuana to a telephone that was seized from a dealer the night before .

Officers then responded to each man's texts posing as the drug dealer to set up a sale and took them into custody.

Solicitation to commit a felony is a Class D felony punishable by up to five years in prison and a maximum fine of $7,500.
