HILLSIDE MAN CHARGED WITH UUW AFTER BEING FOUND WITH GUN IN MELROSE PARK



Hat Tip: Second City Cop

Sunday, November 5, 2017 —A 23-year-old man has been charged with a felony after Cook County Sheriff’s Police officers found him with a stolen pistol in unincorporated Melrose Park, Sheriff Thomas J. Dart announced today.

At approximately 2:45 p.m. on Nov. 3, Sheriff’s officers responding to another complaint in the 2300 block of North Mannheim Road, learned that Jovantae Withers was in the area and carrying a gun. Withers was subsequently located nearby and found with a loaded 9mm pistol in his waistband. The gun had a full 14-round clip.

Further investigation found that Withers, a Hillside resident, has a previous felony conviction and does not have a Firearm Owner’s Identification (FOID) card or Concealed Carry permit.

Withers was taken into custody and charged with aggravated unlawful use of a weapon, a class 2 felony.

During a bond court appearance on Saturday, Withers received an I-bond and was released on his own recognizance.

Sheriff Dart reminds the public that the defendant is presumed innocent until proven guilty by the government in a court of law.


Ed. Does anyone REEELY want to know why crime is out of control in Chicago? From the Cook County Sheriff’s OWN PUBLICATION, we learn:

During a bond court appearance on Saturday, Withers received an I-bond and was released on his own recognizance.”

As the folks at Second City Cop put it:

Uh....what now? He's got a record. And it's a stolen gun.

And Dart publishes this shit on his own web page....like he's actually proud of it.

So, a convicted felon is found with a stolen gun and what happens? Why, he’s sent home, of course! “Released on his own recognizance,” just like he was productive member of society arrested for spitting on the sidewalk!

As I’ve written many times, if you are not checking the Second City Cop on a daily basis, you are missing out on a great deal.
