Police Look For Dubuque Suspect, End Up Arresting Three

DUBUQUE, Iowa -- Officers looking to arrest a woman at a Dubuque home Tuesday got more arrests than they bargained for.

According to a release from Lt. Scott Baxter of the Dubuque Police Department, Dubuque police assisted federal marshals at 1831 Jackson St. around 3:30 p.m. after learning that Nikola Fuller was there.

Police found Fuller, 24, of 4838 Peacock Dr., along with Garrett K. Brokus, 34, and Jeremy S. Bakken, 29, inside the home and an adjoining apartment.

Fuller was arrested on multiple city and county warrants for forgery, theft, a probation violation and failure to appear.

Brokus was arrested on a warrant for violating probation on a third degree theft charge and on a felony burglary warrant from Jo Daviess County, Ill. And Bakken was arrested on warrants for failure to appear on a charge of unlawful possession of a prescription drug and interference with official acts. Fuller and Bakken were also charged with trespass for unlawfully entering the adjacent, unoccupied apartment as they tried to hide from authorities.

Fuller is being held on a $100,000 cash bond, Brokus is being held without bond, and Bakken is being held on a $5,000 cash bond. All remain in the Dubuque County Jail. Fuller could face more charges as the investigation continues, police say.
