A two week Warrants Operation resulted in the elimination of 84 warrants of the 16,000 outstanding Lake County Warrants.
One hundred personnel from the Lake County Sheriff’s Office, Bannockburn Police Department, Buffalo Grove Police Department, College of Lake County Police Department, Great Lakes Regional Fugitive Task Force, Grayslake Police Department, Gurnee Police Department, Immigrations and Customs Enforcement (ICE), Illinois State Police District 2, Illinois State Police District 15, Illinois State Police Swat North, Lake County State’s Attorney’s Office, Lake County Forest Preserve Police Department, Lake County Metropolitan Enforcement Group (MEG), Lakemoor Police Department, Libertyville Police Department, Lincolnshire Police Department, Lindenhurst Police Department, Mundelein Police Department, Park City Police Department, and Vernon Hills Police Department, Wauconda Police Department, and Zion Police Department joined forces to complete the sweep.
As a result of the two week long research the Lake County Sheriff’s Office Warrants Division conducted, 38 Lake County wanted subjects and four out of county wanted subjects were arrested on Feb. 28. It was determined 14 Lake County warrants were quashed or the wanted subjects were deceased and 11 Lake County warrants involved holds on subjects who were in custody at other correctional facilities. During the two weeks, 13 wanted subjects self-surrendered after speaking with the Warrants Division and the Warrants Division transported 4 Lake County wanted subjects from other correctional facilities. The grand total by the end of the day Feb. 28 was 84. Numbers are still increasing as a result of all the attempts made on Thursday. Prior to the warrants sweep, probation officers had been attempting to locate three of the wanted subjects arrested that were on pretrial bond supervision and 10 that were on probation.
Londale Hall, 20, of the 800 Block of South Martin Luther King Jr Av in Waukegan, was arrested on two counts of Aggravated Battery (Class X Felony), Armed Robbery (Class X Felony), and Aggravated Discharge of a Firearm (Class 1) involving a shooting that occurred in North Chicago on Feb. 18.
“This warrant sweep involving 22 agencies demonstrates how lake county law enforcement works particularly well because of the willingness of our law enforcement agencies throughout the county to come together to serve the community, crime victims, and in some instances protect us all from evil,” said Sheriff Mark C Curran Jr.
