Davenport Man Sentenced for Federal Drug and Firearm Offenses



DAVENPORT - A Davenport man has been sentenced for federal drug and firearm offenses.

Jamarlo Scales, 25, of Davenport was sentenced to 180 months imprisonment after previously pleading guilty to possession with the intent to distribute crack cocaine, cocaine, and marijuana as well as possession of a firearm in furtherance of drug trafficking.

This case was investigated by the Drug Enforcement Administration, the Iowa Department of Public Safety, Division of Narcotics Enforcement and the Davenport Police Department, and the case was prosecuted by the United States Attorney's Office for the Southern
District of Iowa.

On December 19, 2011, members of the Davenport P.D. responded to an apartment building after a complaint of marijuana odor. Officers identified the apartment, obtained a warrant and as they approached, three subjects, including Scales, exited a back door and upon seeing the police, fled back into the apartment.

Scales jumped out of a second floor window and ran off with a black duffle bag. When he was apprehended a short distance away, he threw the black duffle bag at the officers.

The bag contained 500 grams of cocaine, 127 grams of crack cocaine, and over $76,000 in cash. Police also found 880 grams of marijuana and a handgun in the apartment.
