Authorities reported arresting 11 men in Dubuque -- including Dubuque County's treasurer -- as part of a two-day sting "targeting human trafficking through prostitution."

County Treasurer Randy L. Wedewer, 60, of Epworth, Iowa, was among those arrested on charges of prostitution during the joint operation conducted by the Dubuque Police Department, Dubuque County Sheriff's Department and Iowa State Patrol on Tuesday and today. When the Telegraph Herald contacted Wedewer's residence tonight, the person who answered the phone said he was not home.
