On Thursday while conducting surveillance at 2188 Emerald Drive, officers saw Wilson get into a 2020 Chevrolet Trax and leave the area. Officers followed Wilson “throughout” Davenport. He eventually went to 1026 River Drive, the Shell gas station at River Drive and Myrtle Street.

Wilson was taken into custody after he walked out of the store.

During a search of Wilson’s residence, officers seized 15.50 grams, or 29 pills, of MDMA, or ecstasy, 87.15 grams of marijuana, and $7,144 in cash.

Wilson also was wanted in connection with a shots fired call that occurred at 2:35 am Sept. 19 in the 1300 block of Washington Street.

In that case, offices located a silver BMW SUV that was suspected of being involved in the shootings. The vehicle was impounded and a search warrant was obtained to search the vehicle.

Officers seized a loaded Glock 17 9mm handgun with an extended magazine. The handgun was modified to fire full auto, which defines it as a machine gun, according to the arrest affidavit.

A fingerprint was recovered from a cartridge that was removed from the gun’s magazine. The fingerprint identified Wilson as the person who used the gun.

Wilson was booked into the Scott County Jail on Thursday. During a first appearance Friday in Scott County District Court, Magistrate Eric Syverud scheduled a preliminary hearing on all the charges for May 20.

Wilson was being held Saturday in the Scott County Jail on cash-only bonds totaling $45,000.

Wilson already is awaiting trial in Scott County on drug charges. He was arrested Sept. 19 on charges of possession with the intent to deliver not more than 5 grams of ecstasy, a Class C felony, and possession with the intent to deliver marijuana, a Class D felony.

After his arrest on those charges, Magistrate Stephen Wing released Wilson from the Scott County Jail, “on Defendant’s own promise to appear at all future court proceedings,” according to district court electronic records.

The Scott County Attorney’s Office is prosecuting Wilson in that case as a habitual offender and is seeking an enhanced prison sentence based on Wilson’s felony criminal history in Cook County, Illinois, that includes convictions for drug and gun crimes.
