A local man was charged with possession of contraband after he allegedly snuck marijuana into the jail via his underwear.

Wesley Turner, 23, 1601 Aber Ave. Apt. 8, was charged Aug. 25 with possession of a controlled substance, controlled-substance violation, and possession of contraband in a correctional facility.

According to complaints from the Iowa City police, officers initially arrested Turner for an outstanding warrant.

Upon searching him, the complaint said, police found a digital scale. Reports said officers told Turner that if he had any other contraband on him, it would be a felony if he got it into the jail, to which the defendant allegedly replied he did not.

Turner was transported to jail and in the midst of processing, officers found approximately six bags of marijuana hidden in his underwear, reports said.
