Cops: Burglar Busted With 6 Wallets, 19 Watches, And More

(L, R): Fowler and Sessum (Chicago Police Dept)
Two men are facing burglary charges after Chicago police chased them from Avondale into Lincoln Park last Wednesday, eventually capturing the duo near Diversey and Paulina.

Luther Fowler, 44, and Nicholas Sessum, 26, are both charged with two counts of residential burglary, according to court records.

Their alleged break-in of a residence in the 2800 block of N. Rockwell is outside of our normal coverage area, but we found their story noteworthy for a couple of reasons.

First, Sessum's arrest came on the day after his parole for a theft conviction ended, according to state records.

And, then, there's volume of property that officers say they found in a pillowcase that Fowler was carrying: 6 wallets; 7 rosaries; 5 boxes of miscellaneous jewelry; 6 pieces of loose jewelry or gems; 19 watches; and a Galaxy Note II.

Curiously, while police say Fowler had 6 wallets in his possession, he did not have his own wallet. Police found that on the roof of a home near the scene of his arrest.

A police report says Fowler is a member of the Latin King street gang. State records show that Sessum has multiple Latin King-affiliated tattoos.

Bond for Fowler is set at $150,000. Sessum's bond information was not immediately available.

  1. Wait, you mean that Sessum wasn't rehabilitated in prison and was commiting crimes during his parole. I'm shocked, just shocked.

    1. Unfortunately, the US DOJ declared in the 80s that prisons are no longer a source of rehabilitation. They declared that prisons are only for temporary housing. Our government does very little to assist any inmate. Once a prisoner is released From jail, they are given very little to assimilate back into society. It's sad but it has been a fact for years.

    2. If penalties for crimes were harsher and prisons were less accommodating, maybe people would be less inclined to live a life of crime and thuggery.

    3. That must vary by state then. I know of one that has been in jail for 3 DUIs, drunk/disorderly conduct, marijuana posession and more and the state is not only "rehabilitating" him, they also helped him find a job even though he's already collecting a pension from the same state.

    4. Prisons and jails should be such horrible places that criminals should want to avoid going there at all costs. Many gangbanging thugs get their "street cred" by intentionally committing crimes that will get them imprisoned. It is like going away to college for them. The only way to stop this insanity is to make prison a hellhole. And for those of you who think the ex-con should be "assimilated" back into society, I hope he becomes your next door neighbor.

    1. Sessum is an ignorant gangbanging moron. He repeatedly posts about how "sick he is of all the bullshit," while ignoring the fact that all his theft and burglary victims are not having their best day either.
