Iowa City police arrested two men Tuesday after a K-9 unit reportedly discovered marijuana in their vehicle and in a pair of shoes.

Arsenio Benjamin McQueen, 25, 2001 Keokuk St. Apt. 8, and Martel Antawn Hathorn, Noxapater, Miss., were charged July 17 with possession of a controlled substance.

According to complaints, McQueen and Hathorn were stopped near the intersection of Highway 6 and Broadway for a traffic violation.

During the stop, officers contend, a police canine gave a positive alert for presence of a controlled substance in the vehicle. Police said they discovered marijuana in numerous locations in the front passenger area of the vehicle. The drug was also located inside a pair of size 12 red Converse tennis shoes in the trunk, according to reports.

The report said that under Miranda, McQueen and Hathorn admitted to smoking marijuana earlier in the day.
