Police arrested five local people Monday after allegedly finding marijuana, packaging material, scales, drug paraphernalia, and numerous other items in an Iowa City home.

According to reports, officers carried out a search warrant at 1111 Hollywood Blvd. at 8:30 a.m. Monday. Devin Smith, 20, Martarius Junious, 20, Darnell Young, 19, and Dalesha Barton, 18, were charged with controlled-substance violations, keeping a drug house, and endangerment.

Reports said police found the items listed above, in addition to other drug-related materials and marijuana that was easily accessible by small children who also lived in the apartment.

Police said they found marijuana that was packaged for sale throughout the residence and cash they believe to have come from drug sales.

Jakari Smith, 19, who does not live at the apartment, was present during the search; he was charged with possession of a controlled substance when officers allegedly found him in a room with marijuana.
