Davenport Man Sentenced on Federal Drug Trafficking Offense

DAVENPORT, IA – On October 22, 2014, Joshua Jonas Edward Miller, age 33, of Davenport, Iowa, was sentenced to 96 months in prison by United States District Judge John A. Jarvey for conspiracy to distribute at least 280 grams of cocaine base announced United States Attorney Nicholas A. Klinefeldt. He was also ordered to serve five years of supervised release following the imprisonment, and to pay $100 towards the Crime Victims Fund.

Beginning about November 2011, and continuing until about October 30, 2012, Miller distributed more than 280 grams of cocaine base (“crack cocaine”) in the Davenport, Iowa, area. During October 2012, law enforcement utilized a confidential informant to complete a series of controlled purchases of crack cocaine from Miller while under law enforcement surveillance. On October 30, 2012, law enforcement executed a search warrant for Miller’s residence in Davenport and located, among other things, approximately 51 grams of crack cocaine and a digital scale that both belonged to Miller.

This case was investigated by the Davenport, Iowa, Police Department, the Iowa Department of Narcotics Enforcement, and the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration. The case was prosecuted by the United States Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of Iowa.
