Officers from across Cook County saturated south suburban neighborhoods on July 25, focusing on seven communities in the area.

“It is no secret that criminal activity significantly increases during the summer months,” Sheriff Dart said in a press release. “It is my goal to clean up our neighborhoods and keep them as safe as humanly possible at all times, but especially now during peak warmer weather.”

The end-of-the-day tally included 22 individuals, eight who had outstanding warrants for felonies including Brandon Robinson, 30, of Hazel Crest who had six outstanding warrants—two for felonies which included criminal sexual assault and possession of a stolen vehicle. Robinson also has 42 prior arrests.

“Brandon Robinson is a perfect example of what we hope for when we conduct operations aimed at preventing violence,” said Sheriff Dart, “he is the poster child of a warrant sweep target.”

Donte Bailey, 19, of Flossmoor was taken into custory on a warrant for unlawful use of a weapon., the Cook County Sheriff's office said.

Other individuals nabbed in the warrant sweep are:

  • Jerrica Webster, 22, of Harvey who was picked up on forgery charges
  • Julian Bynum, 20, of Country Club Hills for possession of a stolen firearm
  • John O’Malley, 48, of Midlothian for felony DUI and driving on a revoked license
  • Brian O’Neill, 35, of Midlothian for DUI
  • David Ithal, 53, of Oak Lawn for possession of a controlled substance
  • and an unnamed juvenile (the Cook County Sheriff’s Office does not release juvenile information)

Sheriff’s Police also conducted parolee compliance checks on gun offenders on parole in the south suburbs by working with the Illinois Department of Corrections. After the 2-day mission targeting 22 individuals, officers recovered eight guns and one stun gun.
