Iowa City police have accused two local men of possessing drugs and paraphernalia.

William Holden, 24, 632 S. Dodge St. No. 8, was charged July 16 with a controlled-substance violation, possession of marijuana, possessing or distributing without a tax stamp, and keeping or permitting use of a controlled substance in a structure or vehicle.

Austin Stegall, 25, 632 S. Dodge St. No. 8, was charged July 16 with keeping or permitting use of a controlled substance in a structure or vehicle.

According to an Iowa City police complaint, police officials executed a narcotics search warrant at the residence, and during the search, investigators found eight individually packaged bags of suspected cocaine hydrochloride in the closet of Holden's bedroom.

The reported weight of the bags including packaging totaled 11 grams, the complaint said. During an interview, Holden allegedly admitted the bags were indeed cocaine and they belonged to him.

Keeping or permitting use of a controlled substance in a structure or vehicle is an aggravated misdemeanor.

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

Possession of marijuana is a serious misdemeanor.

Possessing or distributing without a tax stamp is a Class-D felony.
