A Silvis man arrested by Davenport police in February for allegedly peddling several prescription drugs was back in the Scott County Jail on Friday for failing to show up for his scheduled hearings in Scott County District Court.

Jeremy Allen Summers, 31, of 236 14th St., Silvis, was being held Saturday on a $10,000 cash-only bond.

Summers failed to show up for a June 6 status hearing, and then failed to appear for a July 24 pre-trial conference in his case. Scott County District Judge Tom Reidel issued a bench warrant for Summers’ arrest.

According to the arrest affidavits filed by Davenport Police officer Joel Griffin, at 11:57 p.m. on Feb. 21, officers were sent to the Rustic Ridge Mobile Home Community, 3010 W. 49th St., to investigate a call of shots fired.

The person who called in the complaint told police that a vehicle parked “two up” from the complainant’s place had been involved in the incident.

Officers located a white Chevrolet Cruz with Illinois plates occupied by three people.

As officers approached the car, they could see Summers trying to conceal something in the driver side door compartment. When officers tried to open the door Summers tried to hold the door shut. When officers searched the vehicle they found that Summers was allegedly trying to hide a Taurus 9mm handgun.
