ARRESTING: Ex-Con, Living In Youth Shelter, Batters Center On Halsted Worker (And Other Recent Allegations)

(Cook Co Sheriff's Office)
A Near West Side man is charged in connection with an alleged robbery that reportedly took place after last Tuesday's Night Ministry outreach in Boystown.

Christopher Adams, identified by cops as a "known Conservative Vice Lord" is charged with robbery, battery, and theft. Bail is set at $10,000.

Adams, 23,  has been arrested in our neighborhood a number of times. His convictions include reckless conduct, theft, possession of a replica firearm, battery, and—this is a new one for us—unlawful use of a blackjack.

Purse Snatcher?

Warner (Mugshots.com)
Convicted armed robber Deangelo Warner, 23, is charged with theft in connection with an alleged purse snatching at the Clark/Belmont Starbucks on October 17.

Warner was arrested soon after police joined two citizens in a foot chase of Warner near the Belmont Red Line station.

In 2008, Warner, of the far South Side West Pullman neighborhood, was given a 5-year sentence for armed robbery with a handgun. In court records, police say he is a documented Ragtown Gangster Disciple. Warner denies that.

This mugshot is a little old. His hair currently looks more like this.

Bailey's bail slip, with The Crib as his home address.
It doesn't get much textbook-ier than this.

A convicted robbery offender who calls The Crib youth shelter home, has been charged with battering a Center on Halsted worker last Monday. (Case HX475477)

Donzell Bailey, 24, is accused of shoving a 28-year-old case worker who tried to quell a verbal altercation. COH security detained Bailey, who is now free on $1,500 bond.

Bailey pleaded guilty to a 2010 strong arm robbery and was given two years probation. When that didn't go well, the court gave him a 3-year prison sentence.

Now, as to the wisdom of having a 24-year-old robbery convict living in a shelter for at-risk kids...
