A local man has been accused of possessing marijuana with the intent to sell it.

Sammy Al-Qady, 20, 601 S. Gilbert St. Apt. 633 was charged Oct. 7 with possession of a controlled substance, possession of a controlled substance with intent to distribute, and possession of a taxable substance.

According to an Iowa City police complaint, police officials arrived at Al-Qady’s apartment because of a noise complaint. As officers spoke with residents, they saw marijuana paraphernalia, the complaint said.

When officers made contact with the residents, they consented to a search and found approximately two ounces of “packed” marijuana in several different bag sizes and $3,190 in small bills. Packaging materials, a digital scale, and a cover for the scale were also found in the residence, the complaint said.

Knowingly possessing a controlled substance with intent to distribute is a Class-D felony.

Possession or distribution of a taxable substance without a tax stamp is a Class-D felony.

Knowingly keeping or permitting the keeping of a controlled substance is an aggravated misdemeanor.
