A Davenport felon was arrested Monday night after police say he was found in possession of a stolen gun and more than a half-pound of marijuana.

Nathan Allen Stewart, 23, last known address in the 1300 block of Bridge Avenue, is charged with controlled substance violation, failure to affix drug stamp tax, and possession of a firearm or offensive weapon by a felon.

The three charges are a Class D felony each punishable by up to five years in prison.

He also was cited for driving while license was under suspension and failure to obey a traffic control device. Stewart also was wanted in an unrelated misdemeanor eluding case.

According to jail records, Stewart posted $6,000 through a bail bonds company and was released from the Scott County Jail. He will be arraigned Oct. 5.

Police located Stewart, who had warrants out for his arrest, at 10:18 p.m. Monday in a parking lot in the 1500 block of West Locust Street.

Police say he was in possession of a stolen Glock 43 9mm handgun. Stewart is on a deferred judgement in a felony robbery case out of Colorado and is barred from possessing a firearm, according to an arrest affidavit filed in support of the criminal complaint.

He also was in possession of 261.1 grams of marijuana, two digital scales, and $1,557 cash in denominations “consistent with the sale of narcotics,” according to the affidavit.
