Iowa City man faces pot charge

Authorities have accused an Iowa City man of possessing marijuana.

David Clark, 19, was charged with a controlled-substance violation on Wednesday.

According to online court documents, officers were dispatched to Clark’s dorm room after receiving reports describing the smell of marijuana emanating from there.

Clark allowed the officers into his room and reportedly admitted to smoking marijuana in his room.

Officers allegedly found a small amount of marijuana in the room and a locked wooden container containing jars of marijuana.

After first giving consent to have his room searched, Clark decided he no longer wanted officers to search his room. Officers then applied for a search warrant, which was granted.

Officers reportedly found 26.2 grams of marijuana, three marijuana pipes, and a white piece of paper that said “Wiggle” owes the defendant $85.

Controlled-substance violation is a Class-D felony.
