LeClaire Police said they searched a home in the 800 block of Falcon Drive after finding the missing child there. The child was returned to his mother.
When police searched the home where they found the boy, they said they found other evidence that led to the arrest of three adults who live at the residence.
Paul Zumbrum Jr., 48, and Brenda Brames, 45, were each charged with gathering for use of drugs, child endangerment, contributing to the delinquency of a minor, possession of a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia. Zumbrum was released after posting $460 cash bond. Brenda was released after she posted 2,460 bond.

All of the charges are misdemeanors. All three were held in the Scott County Jail until they posted bond.
