A substitute teacher at Kirkwood Community College has been accused of having a large amount of marijuana in her home.

Dona Saforek, 64, was charged Tuesday with controlled-substance violation and failure to affix tax stamp. 

According to a University of Iowa police complaint, officers of the Johnson County Multi-Jurisdictional Drug Task Force executed a narcotics search warrant at Saforek's residence. 

During the search, members of the task force allegedly located 42.5 grams of a leafy substance similar to marijuana. She also reportedly had several pipes with burnt residue, empty bags with remnants of marijuana, and a grinder with marijuana residue. 

Saforek did not have a proper tax stamp. During conversations with her, officers discovered she was a substitute teacher. 

Controlled-substance violation and failure to affix tax stamp are Class-D felonies.
