IOWA CITY, Iowa -- Looking for a fake ID, police said they found cocaine on a University of Iowa student instead.

According to Iowa City police criminal complaints, police said they stopped 19-year-old Holden F. Leon at 10:20 p.m. Saturday after witnessing him carrying a case of beer through the Ped Mall. Police said he looked too young to buy alcohol and requested to see his ID.

Police said Leon started to pull out his ID, but then ran from officers. He was caught two blocks away.

When police finally searched Leon's wallet, they didn't find a fake ID, but did find a small baggie of cocaine. Leon allegedly admitted the substance was cocaine and it was given to him by a friend. He was arrested and faces charges of possession of a controlled substance, interference with official acts, public intoxication and possession of alcohol under the legal age.
