A local man was charged with a controlled-substance violation, possession of a controlled substance to keep or permit use in a structure or vehicle, and unlawful possession of prescription drugs.

According to an Iowa City police complaint, Colin Groeneveld, 23, 522 E. Burlington St. No. 7, was charged Wednesday.

Police officials conducted a search warrant Wednesday at Groenveld's residence and reportedly located three-quarters of an ounce of marijuana in his room, as well as packaging equipment and a scale. According to the complaint, officials also found text messages on Groenveld's cell phone about dealing marijuana, a small amount of cash, and six grams of marijuana under his mattress.

Police officials also allegedly located several prescription pill bottles with the labels removed, containing 21 Adderrall pills, 16.5 amphetamine pills and dextroamphetamine, as well as numerous other prescription pills.

Unlawful possession of prescription drugs is considered a serious misdemeanor. A controlled-substance violation is considered a Class-D felony. Possession of a controlled substance with intention to keep or permit use in structure or vehicle is considered an aggravated misdemeanor.
