An Iowa City couple were arrested after officers allegedly discovered large quantities of marijuana in their home.

Zachary Scott Goldsmith, 35, and Emily Goldsmith, 31, both of 721 Kimball Road, were charged July 25 with using their home to keep or sell a controlled substance, possession of marijuana with intent to deliver, and an Iowa drug tax-stamp violation.

According to police complaints, Iowa City authorities executed a search warrant at 8:30 p.m. on July 18. Officers allegedly located more than 1,500 grams of marijuana, packaging materials, pipes, bongs, and other drug paraphernalia.

Forty-four marijuana plants were seized from three different rooms dedicated to growing the drug, according to the police.

Possession of marijuana with intent to deliver is a Class D felony punishable by up to five years in prison and a maximum $7,500 fine.
