DAVENPORT, Iowa – A Quad Cities man was sentenced on Wednesday, June 26, 2024, to 126 months in federal prison for possession with intent to distribute less than 50 kilograms of marijuana and possession of a firearm in furtherance of a drug trafficking crime.

According to public court documents, Trevon Demon Horne, 23, was arrested by the Davenport Police Department following a search warrant executed at his Davenport residence. During the search of Horne’s residence, officers located approximately a pound of marijuana, digital scales, currency, and a Glock .45 caliber firearm with an auto-sear switch which made the firearm a machinegun. Horne admitted to selling marijuana and possessing the Glock in furtherance of his drug trafficking.

After completing his term of imprisonment, Horne will be required to serve 5 years of supervised release. There is no parole in the federal system.

United States Attorney Richard D. Westphal of the Southern District of Iowa made the announcement. This case was investigated by the Davenport Police Department.

This case is part of Project Safe Neighborhoods (PSN), a program bringing together all levels of law enforcement and the communities they serve to reduce violent crime and gun violence, and to make our neighborhoods safer for everyone. On May 26, 2021, the department launched a violent crime reduction strategy strengthening PSN based on these core principles: fostering trust and legitimacy in our communities, supporting community-based organizations that help prevent violence from occurring in the first place, setting focused and strategic enforcement priorities, and measuring the results.
