A Chicago man will spend life in prison for dealing drugs in the Quad Cities area. Frederick Dodd was convicted this fall of selling crack cocaine in Clinton and Davenport as well as across the river in Illinois. A judge has sentenced Dodd to life in prison, and tacked on five 20 year sentences. Prosecutors say Dodd was the head of a drug conspiracy that operated between Clinton, Davenport, Chicago and Dixon, Illinois. He was arrested in January of 2003 for possession of crack, and a subsequent search of his house found lots more cocaine. Investigators believe he originally operated out of Clinton, then moved his operation to the Quad Cities. A total of five people have been arrested in connection with the drug ring. Another man was sentenced earlier this year, three others await sentencing.
