Dubuque Man Sold Crack to Cop at Candy Store

A Dubuque man faces federal charges for allegedly selling crack cocaine out of his candy store.

35 year old Dwayne M. Howard is charged with four counts of distributing crack cocaine near a school or playground.

According to an indictment in the case, Howard sold crack to an undercover police officer on four different occasions in January and February of this year. Three of the sales took place inside Howard’s Candy Store which has since been closed.

Three of the sales are alleged to have taken place within 1,000 feet of playgrounds at Madison and Orange parks. The fourth sale allegedly took place within 1,000 feet of Prescott Elementary School.

Howard’s next federal hearing is set for Sept. 24.
