A North Liberty man has been charged with a controlled-substance violation.

According to a North Liberty police complaint, Jason Hardy, 28, was charged Tuesday.

Police officials went to Hardy's residence to serve an arrest warrant when police saw someone allegedly run to the back of the trailer. According to the complaint, Hardy eventually answered the door, and police officials reported they could smell an overwhelming odor of raw marijuana.

Hardy consented to a search of the room, and his wife allegedly admitted hiding a marijuana grinder and bong and retrieved it from the closet. According to the complaint, when police officials continued to search the residence, they found rolling papers, pipes, a digital scale, and nine bags of marijuana weighing two to three grams each in a cooler.

A controlled substance violation is considered a Class-D felony.
