Two Davenport men were arrested this week on drug charges following a months-long investigation.
Brian L. Gay had a 12-year-old present during one of his drug transactions, police said.
As for Dontae L. Burrage, who police said supplied Gay his drugs, it’s his third arrest this year on felony drug charges.
The Quad-City Metropolitan Enforcement Group investigated Gay, who delivered high-grade Mexican marijuana on more than one occasion to undercover agents, MEG director Kevin Winslow said.
Gay, 41, delivered a total of 3.3 pounds, or a kilogram and a half, of marijuana to undercover MEG agents on four occasions, an arrest affidavit states.
He’s charged with four counts of possession with intent to deliver, a Class C felony that is punishable by up to 10 years in prison upon conviction.
He was arrested Wednesday night after he sold 892 grams of marijuana to an undercover agent in the 900 block of West Kimberly Road, Davenport, the affidavit states. He was still in the Scott County Jail Friday.
Police said Gay had a 12-year-old with him when he sold 60 grams of marijuana to an undercover agent on Oct. 16 in the 3100 block of West Central Park Avenue, Davenport.

Police determined that Burrage, 24, of 3438 Heatherton Drive, sold the 892 grams of marijuana to Gay earlier on Wednesday before Gay sold the drugs to the undercover agent. Burrage also was arrested Wednesday night. He’s no longer in custody.
Both men have records of drug convictions.
Burrage previously was arrested March 21 and Oct. 9 on felony drug charges and awaits trial. He also was convicted in 2009 for possession of a controlled substance.
In 1995, when Gay was 23 living in Bettendorf, he received a 10-year suspended sentence and three years of probation after pleading guilty to delivery of cocaine. He also was convicted in 2009 for possession of a controlled substance.
