An Iowa City woman has been accused of attempting to sell marijuana.

Mersadies Turner, 21, 2420 Bartelt Road No. 2C, was charged April 27 with a drug tax-stamp violation and a controlled-substance violation.

According to an Iowa City police complaint, officers executed a search warrant to search Turner's apartment. Officers reportedly located roughly $1,000, 39 individual packages of marijuana, packaging materials, a digital scale, and a marijuana pipe in her bedroom.

Although Turner was not home at the time the search warrant was being executed, her driver's license was located in the apartment — which indicated that the apartment is her current residence, the complaint said.

Drug tax-stamp violation and a controlled-substance violation are both Class-D felonies.
