Iowa woman locked up after cop assist
Iowa City, Iowa — Police say an Iowa woman who was locked out of her apartment has been locked up after officers who helped her regain entry found pot plants and drug paraphernalia inside.
Iowa City police say 19-year-old Jailin Turner is charged with possession of a controlled substance and other crimes. Jail records showed she was in custody on Monday. It’s unclear whether she has an attorney.
The Iowa City Press-Citizen reports the officers were sent to investigate a report early Friday morning about a woman yelling and banging on an apartment window. She told them she’d lost her keys.
The officers said in the complaint that when firefighters broke into the apartment, two bongs were in plain view. Officials also said they found a scale, potted marijuana plants and grow lights.
