A University of Iowa student has been charged with possessing marijuana and Adderall.

Levi Gates, 24, N319 Hillcrest, was charged Monday with two charges of possession of a controlled substance and one charge of possession of distribution without a tax stamp.

According to a University of Iowa police complaint, officials received a complaint of the smell of marijuana coming from a dorm room.

A security official contacted Gates on Riverside Drive after he left his dorm, and he allegedly admitted to possessing a marijuana jar, a joint, and Adderall pills in his pocket.

According to the complaint, Gates had 10 Adderall pills in a zip-lock bag, and he said he was trying to get rid of it when he saw the security official. The security official identified the pills on drugs.com and used a field kit to test the marijuana, which came out positive.

Possession of distribution without a tax stamp is a Class-D felony.

Possession of a controlled substance is a serious misdemeanor.
