Police have accused an Iowa City man of possessing drugs.

Clifton Carter III, 24, 2152 Davis St., was charged Sunday with a controlled-substance violation and possessing contraband.

According to an Iowa City police compliant, Carter's vehicle was stopped by an officer for speeding. He was discovered to have a barred driver's license and was arrested.

A law-enforcement officer conducted a search on Carter at the jail and allegedly located a bag containing 10 individually packaged bags of marijuana concealed in his underwear. Prior to the search, Carter denied being in possession of any drugs, and he attempted to conceal the contraband, the complaint said.

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