Davenport police have arrested the Moline Postmaster for allegedly stealing mail that contained cash and gift cards.

Justin Michael Brown, 42, of Davenport, is charged in Scott County District Court with one count of ongoing criminal conduct. The charge is a Class B felony under Iowa law that carries a prison sentence of 25 years.

According to the arrest affidavit filed by Davenport Police Sgt. Brandon Koepke, members of the Davenport Police Department’s Tactical Operations Bureau served a search warrant on Brown’s home at 8:59 a.m. Friday.

A cooperating witness said Brown began stealing mail in December of 2023. The witness told police that Brown would steal the mail before it entered the mail system and would target mail he believed were greeting cards that contained cash or gift cards.

According to the affidavit, the witness told police that Brown would steal the mail from the Moline Post Office, take it back to his home and then open it.
