A Hazel Crest man with six outstanding arrest warrants and 42 prior arrests was among 22 people arrested during a recent Southland sweep conducted by Cook County sheriff’s police, according to Sheriff Tom Dart’s office.
Of those arrested from seven towns July 25, eight had outstanding warrants for felonies, according to sheriff’s police.
They said officers, working with the county revenue department, also found a business, Noor Oak Forest, 15100 Cicero Ave., with 160 packs of illegal cigarettes, totaling about $6,000 in fines for the business.
The Hazel Crest man whom Dart called the “poster child of a warrant sweep target” is Brandon Robinson, 30, whose outstanding warrants included charges of criminal sexual assault and possession of a stolen vehicle, both felonies, police said.
Others arrested on felony warrants were Jerrica Webster, 22, of Harvey, on forgery charges; Julian Bynum, 20, of Country Club Hills, for possession of a stolen firearm; John O’Malley, 48, of Midlothian, for felony drunken driving and driving on a revoked license; David Ithal, 53, of Oak Lawn, for possession of a controlled substance; Brian O’Neill, 35, of Midlothian, for DUI, and Donte Bailey, 19, of Flossmoor, for unlawful use of a weapon.
Police also recovered eight guns and a stun gun while conducting parolee compliance checks on gun offenders in the Southland, according to sheriff’s police.
