Two local men and a Chicago resident have been accused of possessing more than 40 grams of marijuana.

Tambur Henderson, 40, Coralville, was charged Wednesday with tax-stamp violation, possession of a controlled substance, and controlled-substance violation.

Leon Jones, 27, of Chicago was charged Wednesday with taxstamp violation, possession of a controlled substance, and controlled-substance violation.

Kelvin Dumas, 21, address unknown, was charged Oct. 2 with tax-stamp violation, possession of a controlled substance, and controlled substance violation.

According to multiple Coralville police complaints, the drug task force executed a narcotics search at Henderson's address, 729 20th Ave. Apt. 5, where they located bags, packaging materials, large amounts of cash, and a firearm.

While officers found multiple text messages relating to narcotics sales, he denied selling drugs.

Henderson told police  he runs a  program called “Talent on the Rise” to help at risk-youth.

Jones reportedly admitted under Miranda to participating in drug deals with other apartment residents.

Dumas allegedly admitted to selling drugs as well; he is currently on probation for drug-related offenses.

The amount of marijuana exceeded 42.5 grams, and none of the defendants had a tax stamp.

Possession of a controlled substance is an aggravated misdemeanor, while a controlled-substance violation and a tax-stamp violation are both Class-D felonies.
