DAVENPORT, IOWA – A 38-year-old Davenport man was behind bars Sunday after narcotics detectives found a loaded gun, cocaine and meth in a vehicle and hotel room.
Joshua Ennis faces felony charges of having no drug-tax stamp, felon in possession of a firearm and possession with intent to deliver, as well as a misdemeanor charge of possession of a controlled substance.
He was being held on $10,000 bond in Scott County Jail.
Shortly after 2 p.m. Friday, the Davenport Police Department Narcotics Unit executed a search warrant at the Casa Loma, 6014 Brady St., Davenport, an arrest affidavit says.
Detectives conducted a vehicle block on Ennis and a white GMC Envoy, and later executed a search on the Envoy and his hotel room. Detectives found:
In the Envoy:
- A black Smith and Wesson .380 caliber handgun with six rounds in the magazine in Ennis’s jacket
- 14.6 grams of powder cocaine
- 14.3 grams of “cut”
- A black digital scale with residue
In the hotel room:
- Packaging material
- 0.5 grams of crystal methamphetamine
- Multiple digital scales with crystal meth residue
- .357 ammunition
- Multiple crystal meth pipes
After he was read his Miranda Rights, Ennis, a convicted felon from 2000, admitted he had the gun, the cocaine and meth.
He also admitted he participated in an unreported robbery, as well as being a victim in two separate “shots fired” incidents, one of which was reported to law enforcement.
