Teen Arrested For Robbing Drug Dealer

A Dubuque teenager faces robbery and other charges after police say he robbed another teen and his sister of drugs and other items. According to a police report the incident happened a few minutes before 11:30 Tuesday night in the 1800 block of Central Avenue. A 20 year old woman told investigators that she drove her 13 year old brother to the area so that he could sell 17 year old Blake Ott a bag of marijuana. When they arrived, Ott approached the woman’s car and asked to smell the pot. He then tried to snatch the bag from the 13 year old, who resisted. Ott then pulled a hand gun and took the marijuana along with two i-phones and the woman’s purse, which she says contained prescription drugs. Ott was arrested about an hour-and-a-half later following a foot pursuit along Jackson Street. He faces charges ranging from first degree robbery to possession of marijuana to interference with official acts with a firearm.
