 DAVENPORT, Iowa — On Friday, March 19, 2021, United States District Court Chief Judge John A. Jarvey sentenced Eric Joseph Holloway, age 29, of Davenport, to 300 months in prison for Conspiracy to Distribute Controlled Substances, Possession of Firearms in Furtherance of a Drug Trafficking Crime, and Felon in Possession of Firearms and Ammunition, announced Acting United States Attorney Richard D. Westphal. Holloway was ordered to serve five years of supervised release and pay $300 to the Crime Victims’ Fund.

On September 2, 2020, Holloway pleaded guilty to three counts of a nine-count indictment. The investigation began in December 2017 when law enforcement identified Holloway following a pursuit and located 33 grams of marijuana and drug paraphernalia inside the vehicle. In August 2018, Holloway was involved in a hit and run vehicle crash in Davenport, and, while fleeing the scene, threw marijuana, cocaine, and prescription pills into a nearby dumpster. In December 2018, law enforcement executed a search warrant at Holloway’s residence and seized cocaine, marijuana, a .45 caliber Glock 30 handgun, a .223 caliber Palmetto Arms rifle, and ammunition. In July 2019, law enforcement located Holloway in a vehicle with methamphetamine, crack cocaine, marijuana, morphine and fentanyl, prescription pills, and a loaded .40 caliber Glock 22 handgun. Holloway admitted possessing the firearms in this case in connection with and furtherance of his drug trafficking activities. As a convicted felon, Holloway was prohibited from owning or possessing firearms and ammunition.

This matter was investigated by the Davenport Police Department, Drug Enforcement Agency, and the Scott County Sheriff’s Office. This case was prosecuted by the United States Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of Iowa.
