An Iowa City man was charged Dec. 3 with possession of crack cocaine with intent to deliver and failure to affix a tax stamp to a taxable substance after officers conducted a consent search of the vehicle he was in.

A complaint by Iowa City police said Dimione Jamal Walker, 18, was charged after officers responded at approximately 1 a.m. to 1100 Arthur St. for a 911 call hang-up. While entering the apartment complex, an officer made contact with a vehicle leaving the area of the building. While in contact with the occupants of the vehicle, the complaint said officers noticed open containers of alcohol in the car.

The complaint said after obtaining consent to search the vehicle from the driver, officers located a plastic bag containing seven individually packaged amounts of crack cocaine — allegedly belonging to Walker — in the back seat of the vehicle where Walker was allegedly seated.

Possession of crack cocaine with intent to deliver is a Class-D felony.
