A Davenport woman faces criminal charges after she and her two teenage children were found unconscious in a car at a local grocery store.

Police said they were called to Hy-Vee at 2351 W. Locust Street at about 4 p.m. Wednesday, May 7, 2014 when someone reported a woman and two teens unconscious in a vehicle. Officers found 37-year-old Della Summers, along with her 14- and 16-year-old children, in a parked car.

Summers and her 16-year-old daughter had allegedly smoked a synthetic drug called K-2 while the car windows and doors were closed. The 14-year-old was in the car but had reportedly not smoked the K-2.

Police said they found a pipe containing K-2 residue in the car.  An affidavit filed by police said Summers admitted to buying the K-2, to owning the pipe and to allowing the 16-year-old to smoke the K-2.

Jail records show Summers was charged with felony child endangerment, felony possession with intent to deliver and misdemeanor possession of drug paraphernalia.

Summers was held in the Scott County Jail in lieu of $500 cash-only bond.

    I was working when it happened… The mother was backing out of a parking spot and had a seizure, and slowly hit another parked car, the 16 y/o was throwing up every where, and the 14 y/o was just in a daze.

    The children are doomed. The mothers influence will destroy their future, and the law will do nothing for them. THAT is the greatest of her crimes!
