GONE TO RIO: Boat Burglary Suspect Found In North Side Motel

A 24-year-old fugitive whose Cook County Jail release papers were found onboard a burglarized boat in Diversey Harbor last week is back in custody.

Mikkelson cleaned up his look while he was on the lam.
Terry Mikkelson Jr was taken into custody by a Cook County Sheriff fugitive apprehension unit Tuesday. He's being held without bail.

As CWB reported last week, Mikkelson frequented our neighborhood and has listed local youth shelter The Crib as well as the Howard Brown Health Center as his home address on arrest reports.

Deputies found Mikkelson at the Rio Motel, 6155 N. Lincoln, yesterday morning. For those unfamiliar with the Rio, its mirrored ceilings are consistently mentioned as its best feature in online reviews.

Mikkelson had been on electronic monitoring as he awaited the outcome of a Lakeview burglary case. He missed a court appearance last Wednesday and his jail papers were found on the Diversey Harbor boat early Friday morning. An escape charge was filed within hours.

Mikkelson had not been charged in the boat burglary as of Wednesday morning.

  1. Good. Cement golashes were waiting for him if he came back to Diversey. Capeesch?

  2. I sure hope the Chicago Police Department takes into consideration their anonymous tips on this situation because at this point I feel like I know more than they do about this mess.

  3. Wow. To be captured at the infamous Lincoln Avenue motels. I looked up his Facebook = Gang sign city. He was brought to our neighbood by not-for-profit groups, nobody will learn from this. TRUE STORY ALERT: just found out about a Night Ministry guy and all around Boystown not-for-profit boy wonder who is moving out of Lakeview due to being scared after being robbed on the street followed by another situation a week later....

    1. They're eating their young!

    2. Can you please post more information / what you know about this situation? Just the facts.
      Many thanks.

  4. All those Social Services Orgs start our with the best intentions then just turn into non profit businesses because of all the donations and grants they get. Plus there is no way to bench mark their true impact on all the social problems. No one holds them accountable.
