Arson Case Dismissed

The arson case against a Volga man accused of setting fire to a garage in Dubuque has been dismissed. 40-year old Shane A. Howard was charged in Dubuque County District Court with second-degree arson. Court documents state that prosecutors moved to dismiss the charge because restitution was paid to the victim. The fire occurred back on February 20th in the rear of 2024 Jackson Street and caused 25-hundred dollars in damage. Howard was identified as the driver of a vehicle that was seen by surveillance and city traffic camera footage. Documents state that footage shows a subject exiting the vehicle, approach the garage, reenter the vehicle and drive away as the fire begins in the garage.
