Local woman charged with possession of cocaine
A local woman has been accused of possessing cocaine.
Lisa Langer, 46, 2401 Highway 6 E. No. 2429, was charged June 21 with third-offense possession of a controlled substance.
According to an Iowa City police complaint, while serving committal papers on Langer at her residence, she asked to use the bathroom to brush her teeth.
When she and police officials entered the bathroom, one officer saw a small clear vial with a black lid on the floor between her feet. When the officer asked Langer what it was, she said it was "like Redbull," and she had smoked it yesterday.
Police officials gained access to the substance and after a presumptive test, it was positively identified as cocaine, the complaint said. While at the jail, a second vial containing off-white powder was located in Langer's bra.
Langer has two prior convictions of possession of a controlled substance — March 2, 2001, and May 29, 2001.
Third-offense possession of a controlled substance is a Class-D felony.
