Iowa City man arrested for drug possession


Authorities have arrested an Iowa City man for drug possession.

Carlos Marin, 21, 2701 Heinz Road, was charged Dec. 11 with a controlled-substance violation.

According to the arrest affidavit, Marin was in a crash at Taft Avenue and American Legion Road. A strong scent of burnt marijuana was coming from his vehicle, the affidavit said.

After the vehicle was searched, the affidavit said, a green plant substance was found on the front seats, floor, and back seats, along with a digital scale, a clear mason jar containing a plant substance, small bags, and 18 brownies smelling of marijuana oil.

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