Police busted an alleged drug house in Davenport and arrested three people on drug charges, including one who police said failed to register as a sex offender.
Seith W. Keith, 25, was convicted of third-degree sex abuse on Feb. 1, 2002. He was 14 at the time of his offense, and his female victim was over 18, according to records available online at the Iowa Sex Offender Registry.
His arrest Thursday for failing to register was a second offense, as court records show he’s set to be sentenced March 8 on another failure to register charge.
Scott County Sheriff’s deputies found Keith at a home at 1809 Kirkwood Blvd. about 10:15 p.m. Wednesday, where officers were conducting a narcotics search.
Two others were inside the residence. Police identified them as Corey L. Miller, 42, and Eric S. Green Jr., 23. Each is charged with possession of a controlled substance. Miller also is charged with hosting a drug house, a Class D felony that is punishable in Iowa by up to five years in prison upon conviction.
During the search, police found a safe in Green’s bedroom containing about 12 grams of marijuana and $130 in cash, according to an arrest affidavit.
