A Davenport man has been arrested in connection with a Davenport police drug investigation.

Demetrius Centril Walker, 25, of 1504 Mound St., is charged with three counts of possession with the intent to deliver a controlled substance.

Of the charges, one is for trafficking in crack cocaine, while another is for trafficking in ecstasy. Each of those charges is a Class C felony under Iowa law that carries a prison sentence of up to 10 years.

A third charge involves the sale of marijuana, a Class D felony that carries a prison sentence of up to five years.

According to the arrest affidavits filed by Davenport Police Cpl. Kory Griffin, at 1:55 a.m. Friday, officers stopped the 2013 Chevrolet Impala in which Walker was riding in the 1600 block of Kimberly Road.

Since there was a strong smell of marijuana emanating from the car, officers searched it and found in the center console a large baggy containing marijuana, crack cocaine and ecstasy.

The marijuana was packaged ready for sale in six individual baggies and had a total weight of 15.45 grams.

Also there were 10 individually packaged pills of ecstasy, as well as 3.9 grams of crack cocaine packaged for sale.

Walker was being held Saturday night in the Scott County Jail on $50,000 bond cash or surety.

A preliminary hearing on the case is scheduled for March 16 in Scott County District Court.
