Man Arrested After Heroin Overdose

A Dubuque man was arrested this week after a woman died from a suspected heroin overdose. Online court records say 28 year old Carl Watkins was arrested late Tuesday afternoon and charged with two felony counts of possession of heroin with intent to deliver. On Monday night police and paramedics found the woman dead of an apparent overdose from heroin. Watkins was arrested following a sting operation involving the woman’s phone. Investigators set up a buy with Watkins and he was taken into custody without incident in the 700 block of Wilson Street at around 4:20 Tuesday afternoon. He admitted to using drugs and selling marijuana and ecstasy on occasions, but not heroin.
