Davenport police are investigating a meth-manufacturing case involving a home daycare center.

Dale Sammie Blumer, 34, was arrested Sunday on a felony charge of manufacturing methamphetamine. He remained Monday in the Scott County Jail on $100,000 bond.

“His live-in girlfriend runs a daycare out of the residence where the evidence was recovered,” Lt. Brent Biggs said of the home at 2706 W. 60th St.

The Department of Human Services was contacted, Biggs said, but he could not confirm whether children were present in the home at the time of Blumer’s arrest.

The meth-manufacturing charge does not necessarily indicate a quantity of the drug was found in the home, but the arrest affidavit indicates numerous “precursors,” or ingredients used to make meth, were recovered.

The matter remains under investigation, Biggs said, adding it will be up to a judge to determine whether violations of Iowa’s drug-free zone laws also apply in the case.
