A Scott County Sheriff’s investigation involving trafficking in methamphetamine and stolen weapons has led to the arrest of a Davenport man.

Andy Lee Miller, 42, of 1422 W. 4th St., is charged with one count of possession with the intent to distribute more than 5 grams of methamphetamine. The charge is a Class B felony under Iowa law that carries a prison sentence of 25 years.

Miller also is charged with one count of possession with the intent to deliver not more than 5 grams of methamphetamine after a police confidential source purchased meth from Miller using prerecorded cash, according to the arrest affidavit.

That charge is a Class C felony that carries a prison sentence of 10 years.

Miller also is charged with possession of marijuana — second offense, possession of a controlled substance when deputies seized 24 lorazepam pills, a drug used to treat anxiety. Each charge is an aggravated misdemeanor that carries a prison sentence of two years.

According to the affidavit, Miller also is charged with two counts of trafficking in stolen weapons for two firearms he sold that were recovered on Nov. 13 when sheriff’s agents arrested Gary Glenn Williams, 29, and Belinda Marie Buford, 28, both of 1807 W. 7th St., Davenport.

Officers were investigating Williams and Buford in connection with a methamphetamine trafficking ring and, according to the arrest affidavits, seized a Taurus .380 handgun and a Kal-Tech 32 handgun on the day they were arrested.
