A local man faces a drug charge after allegedly being found with six individually wrapped packages of marijuana in his car.

According to a Coralville police complaint, Ricky Witt, 38, was charged Sept. 14 with a controlled-substance violation after an officer smelled a strong odor of marijuana on the defendant.

Witt got into his vehicle, and the officer could smell a strong odor of marijuana inside the car, the complaint said. Officers proceeded to search the vehicle and reportedly found six individually wrapped packages of marijuana. The defendant told the officers he planned on selling the marijuana because he was in need of some money, the complaint said.

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