Police Charge Chicago Man With Armed Violence

Evanston police officers responded to an armed robbery call at about 4:45 p.m. on Dec. 8, said Commander Jay Parrott of the Evanston Police Department. The caller provided police with a description of the suspect’s vehicle, and police were able to locate the vehicle near Main Street and Ridge Avenue, said the Commander.

Police attempted to stop the vehicle, but the driver attempted to flee. The vehicle crashed into several other vehicles in the 1700 block of Main Street, the Commander said.

Police were able to apprehend one suspect and recover a handgun, said Commander Parrott. With the help of a canine unit, police continued to search the area, but were unable to locate a second suspect.  

No injuries were reported at the time of the crash. Police officers learned that this incident was the result of a drug deal gone awry, said the Commander. Police recovered crack cocaine and more than $1,000 in cash from the one offender.

Evanston Police charged a 32-year old Chicago man with numerous felony offenses in connection with the incident, said the Commander. Police are still attempting to identify the second suspect  who was the driver of the vehicle.
