A man from Bloomington is facing a felony

robbery charge in Dubuque County District

Court, after trying to rob a convenience

store in Dubuque at gunpoint.

Thirty-five-year-old (35) Chad K. Reuter

appeared in court on Wednesday. He remains

in custody in the Dubuque County Jail

on cash bond of $50,000. A preliminary

hearing has been scheduled for next Friday.

Police say Reuter entered a convenience

store on East 16th Street Sunday morning

and demanded money from the clerks.

He reportedly pulled out a black handgun

when demanding the money.

Through surveillance and traffic cameras

in the area, police were able to get the license

plate number off of Reuter’s vehicle.

After being picked-up by a Grant County

Sheriff’s Deputy on Monday, Reuter was

interviewed by police. Police also

executed a search warrant on his car

and residence. That’s where they found

a red sweatshirt, a bandana, and a black

B-B gun. Police say the clothes matched

those worn by the robber at the time

of the hold-up, and the gun matched

the one used in the robbery.
