Authorities have accused a West Branch man of purchasing an ounce of cocaine.

Juan Orozco, 30, was charged Monday with driving with a revoked license and controlled-substance violation.

According to an Iowa City police complaint, members of the Johnson County Drug Task Force conducted a traffic stop on Orozco following a controlled cocaine purchase.

Orozco had allegedly purchased one ounce of cocaine in exchange for $1,200, which was found inside his vehicle. He was also the driver of the vehicle when the transaction occurred, the complaint said.

Orozco’s driver’s license has been revoked for a past OWI test failure.

Driving with a revoked license is a serious misdemeanor. Controlled substance violation is a Class-C felony.
