Police manhunt nets one (UPDATE)

After spending much of the morning patrolling CAPS beat 2431 and 2423, police arrested and took one person into custody at 7020 North Greenview at 12:17 p.m., January 31, 2013. Undercover and marked squad cars roamed down every street and alleyway hunting of a person of interest.

The person arrested at gun-point was caught in the alley and cornered by up to six undercover squads and a couple of marked vehicles, including the arrest wagon. The alleged offender was a black male, bald and in what looked like his 30's. He was led away in handcuffs.

The only crime that I can think of that would warrant that type of manhunt is the recent robbery of a Loyola University college student, who was robbed at gunpoint in the 6700 block of North Greenview on Tuesday.

UPDATE: I was told this arrest has nothing to do with the Loyola University student gunpoint robbery. It's something else. Police tac units are still heavily patrolling Morse Avenue as of 3:25 p.m., as they were this morning. This must be much bigger, like a gang undercover investigation sting round-up, because the street is clean of all riff-raff today. It's almost like the gangs were tipped off.

Plus, I've only had two people beg me for a square.

Down @ U of I in Champaign-Urbana there were occasional hold-ups of students. Hope they caught they caught the right guy.

One of those weirdo panhandlers guys tried to get into my building (white hippie dude) and the police could not give less of a fuck about it.
I'm sure they'll arrest me, though, for smacking that blonde haystack off of his head next time he pulls that shit.

Craig Gernhardt said...

Yeah, Jeff-O, it was getting stinky on Morse the last month with the gangbangers.

@DUI, when I pull out a smoke, at leat 4 people walk by asking for one. It's like a piece of cheese left on the floor and the mice all come out and want it.

Hey guys & gal. You still don't have a clue what's going down do you? You guys are so funny looking right at it in the face and don't see it.

I asked about him a long time ago and usually he's just a harmless Starbucks patron, but today he was really aggressive, the po-po didn't seem to care but I'm sure he'll do something bad pretty soon if he stays in that mood he's in.
He was pounding on the glass and tugging on the door, I scowled, turned around and call the police while I was in the elevator.

I dumped a girl because she was always asking for single cigarettes everywhere we went, just trashy and slattern behavior there.

Stanley Katakowski said...

God dammit Jesus Christ. You guy are a bunch of sticks in the mud looking for your dicks. You don't know shit about what was going on last night, do ya's. You're about as useless as tits on a bull. Maybe if youse guys had more connections ya might know somethin. Nice CCW ad on top nowadays. Class fuckin' act.

Patrol Officer B. said...

Katakowski this busload of clowns is so clueless they couldn't even figure out how to fuck themselves if you gave then a picture guide book. Their only connections is street skanks and losers.

How do you know I don't know anything? I play my cards close to the vest.

@Patrol Officer B::
After you have swallowed that last bite of chocolate donut and licked any traces of vanilla icing from your greasy fingers, PLEASE TELL US WHAT IS GOING ON. If you, in fact, really know anything.

Bill said...

Craig was right, for once. It was a round-up.

We scooped you again. If you had some cop friends they would have told you what was right under your nose the other day but you couldn't figure it out apparently. Sharpen up if you want scoops.

What a bunch of fuckin jagoffs. Bro Craig knew all along what was goin down. Everyone on the street knew and he played you assholes like dummies. Oh a white hippie dude. Oh hold ups of students. Yeah right. Craig tossed you cheese and you guys took the bait. What a bunch of fuckin dumbos. The Bro sure fooled your asses.

If I weren't IP banned, I would start a thread about Greenpeace flourescent vest douches taking up the opposite side of the street from panhandlers thereby making it impossible to go down the street without being begged for money.
Then the thread would devolve into some circle jerk about how I'm supposed to give a fuck about shit like that, Li'l Jeffy Littleton would propose a sidewalk chalk mural for the dyslexic, transgender whales affected by the dotcom crash of the last decade and ultimately the thread would get deleted because of imaginary racist comments that only existed in Phoebe's mind. Helen would probably fart dust and then post a thread asking for praise that she had her maid sweep it up and recycle it.
Seriously, I'm pretty anti-stupid laws, but this street begging shit has to go, both the bums and the young vest and clipboard crowd. I can't always hold in the fart long enough to get close to one of those fuckholes, but I always try to.

Stanley Katakowski said...

God fucking dammit DUI. Them goddamned hippies do more to make the neighborhood good than your goddamned ass full of stinky shit and your fuckin' complainin and goddamned freaky internet stalking ways. by the way, leave that goddamned RPlover RPgreenleaf whatever the fuck chick alone on everyblock. she ain't done no fuckin harm and youre freakin her out and she's emailin everyone sayin she's gonna sue 'em and arrest em and shit. not cool.

Dangerously unstable individual said...

Both my IP addresses are banned from Everyblock and I can't join or post, nor do I really want to unless I come up with really good trollbait that tops my last few incarnations.
Internet stalk? I have no interest in dating or fucking anybody who has never trimmed their pubes since the onset of puberty.
Y'know, dude, I have a surplus of Seroquel laying around the fully functional babelair here, should I send you some? It might help, or at least knock you the fuck out so you can shut the fuck up for a few hours.

Gonzo Rockatansky said...

Bro when you been sniffin around her untrimmed bush? That's hot. Or did she just flash you the beaver? Stalkin the Bush? Bro that is so sick that You Da Man Bro.

It's best to not deconstruct any joke I make, just laugh, or don't, and move on.

Anita Hanjaab said...

What a bunch of dicktards. No wonder my asshole pimp told me to log in for a good time. Jagoffs and losers each one of you. I'll bring a bag of thorazine tacos from Panera Scares the next time I stop in. Courtesy of Ms. Anita Hanjaab you sick fuckheads.

Stanley Katakowski said...

WOW, HOLY SHIT. Hey Anita hows it goin'? Wanna grab a coffee or some shit later?

Anita Hanjaab said...

Any time but it better be stronger than coffee. I'm ready to get out of here before "Dangerously" starts trying to fuck himself with that peanut dick of his. No amount of drugs will help that piece of dog shit. He is such a Craig suckup.
