Iowa City fire leads to drug charge


An Iowa City man faces a drug charge after a fire at his apartment.

Police were called to 2409 Bartelt Road, apartment 1D, around 6:30 p.m. on Aug. 3, after firefighters found what they thought was marijuana in the home.

Officers found pot on a plate and in a medicine bottle, along with a partially smoked marijuana cigarette and rolling papers.

Officers spoke with 63-year-old Clarence Douglas Bolden at University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics and police say he admitted that the drugs were his and that he smoked the day before.

Bolden is charged with possession of a controlled substance.
