Davenport, IA- A federal judge has convicted three Louisiana men of conspiracy to distribute drugs in the Burlington area as part of a drug conspiracy dating back to 2008.
According to court documents, 39-year-old Kendrick Page, 36-year-old Tristan Davis, and 20-year-old Breon Armstrong entered an agreement with each other, and others, to distribute crack cocaine and ice methamphetamine in Burlington and elsewhere. Page relocated from Shreveport to Burlington while he was still in school and had brought others, including Davis and Armstrong, from Shreveport to assist in Page’s drug trafficking activities.
The evidence showed Page had been involved in trafficking drugs in Burlington since the early 2000s. Acting United States Attorney Richard D. Westphal made the announcement. “This case is a testament to the dedication and hard work of multiple federal, state, and local law enforcement agencies, and our prosecution partners at the Des Moines County Attorney’s Office, working together to bring a long-standing drug organization to justice,” stated Westphal.
Des Moines County Sheriff Kevin Glendengin stated, “This was a long-term, collaborative investigation involving numerous investigators from many different agencies. The excellent work and tireless efforts of these investigators are a testament to their dedication to making our communities a safe place to live, work, and play. The Des Moines County Sheriff’s Office is proud to have worked together with all the law enforcement professionals involved in this investigation, and to get these dangerous narcotic distributors out of our communities.”
Page, Davis, and Armstrong were among eight defendants who faced federal charges as a result of an investigation in Burlington, Iowa; Quincy, Illinois; and elsewhere, which culminated in the execution of search warrants in November of 2019.
