Two Arrested in Search for Jo Daviess County Fugitive

A wanted man from Jo Daviess County has been apprehended, and a woman is accused of helping him try to avoid arrest. Shortly before 1:00 Saturday morning, sheriff’s deputies searched the rural Stockton home of 41-year-old Andrea Preston. Authorities were looking for 31-year-old Dustin Thompson, who had two active warrants for his arrest. During the search, officers found that Preston had barricaded a doorway in the home to try to hide Thompson from authorities. The sheriff’s department also says Preston denied knowing where Thompson was several times when contacted by officers. Thompson was arrested on his outstanding warrants and has additionally been charged with Resisting Arrest. Preston is facing felony-level charges of Obstructing Justice and Aiding or Concealing a Fugitive.
