Police: Iowan Sold Crack in Candy Store
DUBUQUE, IA (AP) -- A Dubuque man faces federal charges for allegedly selling crack cocaine out of his candy store earlier this year.
The Telegraph Herald reports 35-year-old Dwayne M. Howard is charged with four counts of distributing crack cocaine near a school or playground. Court records do not list an attorney.
Howard is accused of selling the drug to an undercover police officer on four different occasions in January and February. An indictment says three of the sales took place inside Wayne's Candy, a business operated by Howard. It has since closed.
The indictment says three of the sales took place within 1,000 feet of playgrounds at two parks. A fourth alleged sale took place within 1,000 feet of an elementary school.
A hearing is scheduled on Sept. 24.
