|Members (Cook Co. Sheriff's Dept)|
Jimmy Members, 48, was arrested at 3AM on June 28 after a man told police that he saw Members bump into a woman outside of Roscoe’s, then immediately reach into the woman’s purse to remove a pink wallet. The witness said Members quickly handed the wallet off to a black woman who fled the scene.
According to management at Roscoe’s, Members has been barred from their establishment since 1998. However, they cannot bar Mr. Members and his “co-workers” from the sidewalks in front of the bar.
they said that they found "a bundle of [cash] totaling $570 in his inner coat pocket that he could not account for" as well as four drivers licenses—one from Texas, one from South Carolina, and two from Illinois—plus Visa cards issued by Wells Fargo, Chase, BAO, and EflexGroup; and a Target credit card. Police were unable to immediately locate the owners of those cards.
As we reported previously, Members was accused in May 2014 of striking a woman who tried to take his picture after she allegedly felt his hand in her purse while drinking at a bar in Old Town.
