Iowa City Police confiscate nearly a pound of pot from apartment

Posted:

IOWA CITY (KWWL) -- An Iowa City man faces several drug charges after police confiscated nearly a pound of marijuana from an apartment.

Officers went to 929 Iowa Avenue, apartment #15, around 11:30 Monday night for a drug investigation.

After the residents declined a consent search, officers got a search warrant and found approximately 3/4 of a pound of what they call "high grade" marijuana, $3,179 in cash, packaging materials, digital scale and other items police say are used in the sale and use of illegal drugs.

Police say that through their investigation, they determined that the people living in the apartment were inviting others over to use the drugs and were using drugs just before they arrived.

Police arrested Lee Richard Henneberry, 20.  He's charged with Keeping a Drug House, Gathering for Use of Drugs, Possessing or Distributing a Taxable Substance without a Tax Stamp and a Controlled Substance Violation.
