A local woman who was arrested after her son was allegedly found playing with crack is to be released to the 6th Judicial Department of Correctional Services.

Tiffany Johnson, 25, is charged with possession of a controlled substance, controlled-substance violation, distributing/selling a taxable substance without a tax stamp, and child endangerment.

Iowa City police officers responded to a 911 call from Johnson’s children on Feb. 13 after Johnson had allegedly left her three children home alone to go to Kmart. While speaking with Johnson, police reportedly noticed her son playing with a rock of crack. According to a police complaint, Johnson told the officers that she sells crack and that she was storing a can of it in her bedroom. The can was located by police officials, and it allegedly contained 12 grams of crack packaged for sale, according to the complaint.

According to a court document, after meeting with Jail Alternatives and completing a substance-abuse evaluation, Johnson is to be released with supervision to correctional services.
