Police have accused an Iowa City man of breaking into a residence and going through a resident's belongings.

Quartez Alexander, 21, 240 Highway 6 Apt. 2612, was charged Thursday with second-degree burglary and possession of drug paraphernalia.

According to an Iowa City police complaint, Alexander kicked in the front door of a residence on East Burlington Street. He was reportedly seen by a witness in the house and was asked what he was doing. Alexander answered saying he was looking for someone named Brett.

The person asked him to sit down, and he left the residence. Wallets and purses were gone through, but nothing was taken, the complaint said.

Alexander was positively identified by a witness, but he denied entering the residence to police officials. Officers asked Alexander to empty his pockets to find a form of identification, the complaint said.

The complaint said he got out a one-hitter, which is commonly used to smoke marijuana, and a bottle of Super Sonic Blueberry with what appeared to be marijuana inside the bottle.

Second-degree burglary is a Class-C felony; possession of drug paraphernalia is an aggravated misdemeanor.
