An Iowa City man has been accused of keeping a drug house after Iowa City police allegedly discovered burned marijuana roaches when clearing the residence during a party.

Gabriel Armento, 19, 511 S. Johnson St. No. 11, was accused Jan. 26 of keeping a drug house, keeping a disorderly house, and possession of a controlled substance.

Iowa City police officers responded on Jan. 26 to a call about a loud party. Upon arrival, officers were able to hear loud music and unpleasant noise from the upper level of the apartment building, the police complaint said. Officers located approximately 10 people playing beer pong in the hallway and approximately 15 to 20 people inside the apartment.

When officers cleared the residence, they allegedly located marijuana and drug paraphernalia throughout the residence.

Possession of a controlled substance is a serious misdemeanor, and keeping a drug house is considered an aggravated misdemeanor.
