Boystown Robbery Leads Cops To Suspect In Iowa Home Invasion, Murder

A Friday evening robbery in Boystown ended with police arresting a suspect as well as his companion—a woman being sought by authorities for her role in a home invasion, robbery, and murder near Dubuque, Iowa, in April.

Police were flagged down by two robbery victims outside the Center on Halsted around 8 o’clock last night. An offender description was broadcast to other units, one of whom just happened to see a man matching the description walking past the 19th district police station at 850 W. Addison.

22-year-old Jeremy Dukes was stopped and arrested after being positively identified as the man who robbed the victims while indicating that he had a firearm. He is due in bond court this afternoon.

Dukes’ 19-year-old companion, Adrianna M. Chica, was also arrested after police ran her name and found Iowa’s nationwide warrant.

Chica is one of five individuals who police say participated in a home invasion that led to the shooting death of 21-year-old Collin Brown in Key West, Iowa, on April 2.

Chica is wanted for second-degree robbery in the case.

Campbell (Dubuque Police Dept)

30-year-old Eric Campbell Jr., wanted for first degree murder and robbery, remains at large. The other three suspects are in custody in Iowa.

Dukes is currently on parole for theft. He previously served a 3-year sentence for a 2011 robbery conviction.

While on parole last summer, Dukes was arrested for threatening an employee at the Center on Halsted. The assault charge was dropped when—consistent with COH policy—the employee failed to show up in court.

Dukes lists the Howard Brown Health Center, 4025 N. Sheridan, as his home.
