A 25-year-old Dubuque man faces felony drug charges after an alleged attempted break-in of a Jamestown restaurant Oct. 11.

Jimmane Pittman is charged with possession with intent to deliver up to 200 grams of marijuana, second-offense possession of marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia, and resisting or obstructing an officer.

Pittman was bound over for trial Wednesday after a preliminary hearing, after which he pleaded not guilty to the charges. His trial is scheduled for Dec. 14 and 21 and Jan. 12 and 19, with a status conference Dec. 2, according to court records.

Pittman was seen by a Grant County sheriff’s deputy trying to break into the Country Heights Supper Club Oct. 11 around 3:55 a.m. 

Platteville police reported that a car at the scene driven by Christine Garrigus, 24, Dubuque, had been involved in a hit-and-run crash in Platteville. Fresh damage was seen on the vehicle, the Sheriff’s Office said.

Garrigus’ car was found to have money, drug paraphernalia and prepackaged marijuana, the Sheriff’s Office said.

Pittman was arrested on Dubuque County felony warrants that included burglary and drunk driving. 

Platteville police are investigating the hit-and-run.
