Authorities have accused an Iowa City man of possessing drugs and robbery.

Samuel Lockett, 26, was charged Wednesday with controlled-substance violation and Dec. 30, 2013, with second-degree robbery.

According to an Iowa City police complaint, Lockett was taken into custody Wednesday on an outstanding warrant. While officers searched Lockett, they allegedly discovered he had a plastic bag containing four smaller bags with a white rock-like substance that field-tested positive for cocaine.
The outstanding warrant was for a robbery that occurred in December.

Lockett and his associate were driven by a man to a BP station on Dec. 29, 2013. Later, that man  received a call from Lockett, asking to be picked up at Clearwater Court. The man encountered two black males on Clearwater Court, one of whom was Lockett. Lockett then opened the victim’s door, allegedly punched him in the face numerous times, and demanded money. The man sustained minor injuries.

A controlled substance violation is a Class-C felony. Second-degree robbery is a Class-C felony.
