Agents with the Quad-City Metropolitan Enforcement Group have arrested a 24-year-old Davenport man for allegedly distributing heroin, cocaine, methamphetamine and marijuana.

Akeem Seville Smith, of 5417 N. Linwood Ave., was wanted by Davenport police on numerous outstanding warrants, including theft, assault and gun charges, when he was taken into custody by MEG agents who were looking for him. 

During the arrest, agents found that Smith was in possession of quantities of all four drugs. 

According to the arrest affidavits, Smith had in his possession 5.8 grams of high grade methamphetamine, also known as “Ice,” 4.7 grams of heroin, 20.9 grams of cocaine, and 5.7 grams of marijuana.

He was charged with four counts of possession with the intent to deliver a controlled substance.

The charge involving the methamphetamine is a Class B felony under Iowa law that carries a prison sentence of up to 25 years.

The two charges relating to the heroin and cocaine each are Class C felonies that carry a prison sentence of up to 10 years.

The charge relating to the marijuana is a Class D felony that carries a prison sentence of up to five years.

Smith also is charged with failing to affix an Iowa tax drug stamp to the illicit drugs, a Class D felony.

Agents were looking for Smith who was wanted on four outstanding warrants out of Davenport dating back to 2015.

According to the arrest affidavit, Smith was taking out the garbage when he grabbed the victim’s purse and placed it in the garbage can. He then placed the garbage on top and took it out the back door.

The total value of the items stolen was more than $500, so Smith is charged with third-degree theft in that case, an aggravated misdemeanor that carries a prison sentence of up to two years.

According to the arrest affidavit, Smith had gotten into an argument with the victims and pulled a gun on them and threatened to shoot them. He then took a PlayStation 4 gaming system and a video game from the residence. The value of the system and game is about $540.

From that incident, he is charged with one count of third-degree theft, and assault while displaying a weapon, which also is an aggravated misdemeanor.

Then, on November 26, Smith was in the passenger seat of a 2012 Ford Escape his girlfriend when he physically assaulted her, striking her in the face and right arm as she was driving, according to the arrest affidavit.

The woman stopped the car in the 4500 block of Marquette Street, and got out after being hit. Smith then got in the driver’s seat to flee but lost control of the car and hit a mailbox and tree. He then ran away on foot.

Officers discovered a 9mm handgun in the map pocket of the front passenger seat where Smith had been sitting. The gun did not belong to Smith’s girlfriend.

As a juvenile in 2008, Smith was convicted of felony burglary and as a convicted felon is not allowed to possess any firearm or ammunition.

Smith is charged in that case with being a felon in possession of a firearm, a Class D felony, as well as misdemeanor domestic assault.

He also was wanted by the Scott County District Court authorities for failing to pay his child support.
