An Iowa City man has been accused of possessing marijuana.

Alexander Mills, 19, was charged May 7 with a controlled-substance violation.

According to an Iowa City police complaint, Mills was a passenger in a car that was stopped for a traffic violation.

Mills was asked to step out of the vehicle so the K9 could sniff it for drugs. When he exited, the officer searched his person.

He reportedly had two small bags of marijuana. The K9 alerted officers to the vehicle, and a large black backpack was found. It allegedly contained 32.62 grams of marijuana, a digital scale, rolling papers, bags, and a shredder/grinder.

Mills reportedly admitted to buying the marijuana earlier that day.

A controlled-substance violation is a Class-D felony.
