Three Brothers Arrested after High Speed Chase

Homewood police say the brothers were potential ruse artists.

Three men were arrested after they allegedly attempted to fix the roof of a resident who did not request their service. Sonny and Walter Miller, 7745 W. 87th Street, Bridgeview, and Tony Miller, 3724 N. Milwaukee Ave., Chicago, were arrested at 1:07 p.m. following a high-speed chase that ended in the 800 block of 187th Street, police said.

A resident called and alerted police that the men were at his home in the 18900 block of Queens Road. Police arrived to find Sonny Miller at the scene. Miller had no identification with him and he told police Walter and Tony Miller had left to purchase supplies. As police waited with the one alleged offender, the other two Millers drove past, recognized what was happening and fled the area. Police chased them past May Street and Queens Road before the two turned back north on May Street. The duo reportedly ignored several stops signs along the way.

Sonny Miller was arrested on a Will County Sheriff’s Police warrant for conspiracy to commit theft. Walter Miller was arrested on a Cook County Sheriff’s police warrant for criminal trespassing and a Chicago Police warrant for home repair fraud. Tony Miller was charged with reckless driving, speeding, disobeying a traffic control device and driving while license suspended.

Sorry, George. The headline was unintentional and it's been corrected. Thanks for pointing that out!

This is great news! The police and detectives have earned their pay! Thank God no one was hurt. I saw the police chase on May and wondered what it was. We've had enough ruse burglaries in our area.

Funny, I can't get a roof repairman out to my house. Hell, I can't even get a callback. All they had to do was run an honest roofing biz.
