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.

Dukes (Chicago Police Dept)
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.

Chicago (Chicago Police Dept)
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.

  1. As a gay male and CPD I often wonder if you realize what we do? The majority of calls are bull$hit domestics. Couples fighting over a cell phone, Auntie stole the Link card, ect..And the robberies? How many of the victims you think are sober? Not many and very few actually file complaints. The 7/11 retail thefts, I admit we dont give a $hit.

    1. How sad our hard-earned taxpayer dollars are going to salaries for individuals like you that don't care. You should probably take up another line of work and let someone else who does care take care of protecting the public.

    2. Doubt if you are real CPD officer. I have talked to several of your coworkers who seem to see things differently. I agree, resign and find something that better suits you if you are being truthful because it's sad.

    3. So it's acceptable to rob someone who is drunk? You are a disgrace to the CPD. Those same people stealing from 7/11 are the same ones that will mug, beat, or kill other people. Nip the petty crimes and quickly you'll prevent the violent crimes and ultimately save lives.

    4. It is difficult to care for a community that does not care for you

    5. If you really are CPD, it's time for you to find another job. Not caring about the community is not acceptable in your current position when you take an oath to Protect and Serve.

    6. He's got a point but I don't think he's real CPD. Gay, Yes, CPD, No.

    7. "As a gay male and CPD..."

      Garry McCarthy? I thought they canned you?

    8. I'm not gay but I do support this officer. If you all know how it is, then you take the test and go be the hero. You be societies punching bag and, when you get one "thanks for what you do" for every 100 "fuck the police," "y'all some bitches," CPDK, etc., then talk about how fulfilled you are with your choice and eager you are to help.

      Burnout and attrition is a real issue. You can respond like the criminals and bash us and pretend like it's just "bad cops" that need to get out. We do our jobs, minimally now, but still go to in-progress calls just way more cautiously.

      I love hearing about guys and girls who are leaving this job, city and state. I can think of around 15 cops that started with me or sooner and have left. To the original poster, I hope you're of the same mindset. You're not a bad person, you signed up to help people and are just burned out in an impossible atmosphere. No matter who they hire, the same morale issues will be the same. I'm making the change, as many others are. Best of luck to you and seriously look at getting out.

  2. How many more of these case studies need to be presented to the neighborhood before it is agreed that center on halsted should be removed from our community? if there was a particular home in the neighborhood that served as a no-questions-asked-no-punishment-given magnet for criminals, the neighbors would shut it down and there would be cheers as the cops did their work. why is the COH exempt from such common sense? political correctness? other?

    1. Because...they are. The community could care less. Until you all get off your asses from here and actually go to the center as a group and demand to talk to someone in charge, nothing changes.

  3. This has got to stop. Look at what these "social service" agencies are being used for. I no longer live around there (fled for obvious reasons) but this crap has to stop or you're all doomed.

  4. Dukes lists the Howard Brown Health Center......

    Shocking, I say! Just shocking!

    1. To be fair, anyone can list any address. While I'm not a fan of many of the service organizations in the area, they can hardly be held responsible for being listed as an address when someone is arrested.

    2. He was homeless. They both were. I actually spent time with them. Seemed like decent people. Wouldn't imagine they were into shit this deep.

      Delete
    3. Dukes was not homeless. And the only reason she was "homeless" is because she was running from authorities in Iowa.

    4. "To be fair, anyone can list any address. While I'm not a fan of many of the service organizations in the area, they can hardly be held responsible for being listed as an address when someone is arrested."

      Gosh. The number of people who "make up" 4025 N. Sheridan as their address is truly mind boggling. How would they all come up with that exact same address?

    5. in case anyone is wondering, he stays at the crib, which is at 835 W Addison St, Chicago, IL 60613

  5. Pandora's Box is open. Even if you close down the center, which I support, the weasels will return.

  6. Curious to see if COH really sends a representative to the next CAPS meeting as well as all Lakeview neighborhood meetings as they promised earlier this month to answer questions just like this one.

    ReplyDelete
  7. If COH sends a rep to any meeting, their stock response will be along the lines of, "We'll admit that we have something of a learning curve here...and of course, we are here to LISTEN". Total BS, as COH leadership is insufferably arrogant...

  8. The cops in our district are out manned, as far as 7/11 goes, why arrest someone when they don't press charges or go to court. Stop shopping at 7/11.

  9. If I were a policeman, I would not respond tocalls at the COH. I would let them deal with their own "disturbances".

  10. Speaking of CAPS meetings, Tunney has further inoculated himself from public comment and dissension by converting all his FB page posts back many weeks into "Shares" so as to prevent direct comments. I suppose his staff was spending to much time reading and removing posts he did not like. If there is a way around this on Facebook, I don't know what that is.

    I did not bother to check Smiths and Cappelmans as alternate places to shit on.
