ELDRIDGE, Iowa — Suspicious activity drew police to a downtown apartment Monday where they discovered ingredients for making methamphetamine and later made an arrest of a nearby resident.

Eldridge police had received complaints of suspicious activity in the second-floor apartment at 202 W. Davenport St., with another tip Monday, Chief Dave Kopatich said. The apartment had been vacant.

Quad-City Metropolitan Enforcement Group agents, with Eldridge police, arrived at the scene about 12:30 p.m. Officers removed an unidentified powder and unidentified liquid as well as Coleman fuel and lithium batteries from the apartment.

The investigation led to the arrest of Brandon R. Bruner, 39, of 204 W. Davenport St., Eldridge. He was charged with conspiracy to manufacture methamphetamine, a Class C felony, and two counts of child endangerment, an aggravated misdemeanor.

Police said they learned during the investigation that two children, ages 6 and 13, were in the residence.

The investigation is continuing.
