Man Carrying 4 Phones, 13 Gift Cards Gets Theft Charges

Walker (Chicago Police Dept)
A Lincoln Park man is charged with possession of a deadly weapon, theft of lost or mislaid property, and trespassing after police responded to the 1000 block of W. Dakin to investigate a report of a man pulling on vehicle door handles in the area.

Officers stopped 28-year-old Joshua D. Walker around 3:30PM on March 21 because he matched the suspect’s description, police said.

During a protective pat-down, police found a 4-inch knife in his pants pocket and four cellphones in his jacket, a CPD report says.

Officers have been unable to locate the owners of the four phones: an iPhone, a white Samsung Galaxy, a white LG, and a blue Alcatel. Also recovered from Walker were 13 gift cards, two Ventra cards, and an iPod, court records say.

Walker’s criminal record includes a 2008 conviction for robbery, which earned him a 3-year sentence. He is currently free on a $1,500 I-Bond.

  1. A $1500 bond? Convicted felon. Hell, his haul was worth more than $1500! Of course the 4 phones, 13 gift cards etc. were "lost or mislaid" in all those automobiles.....rediculous.
    It's bad, and the judicial system is not helping us get some control over all this crime that has plagued our once peaceful neighborhood's. He's been convicted of robbery and all those phones and gift cards probably didn't come from only one more crime- there's a bunch of crime trailing this guy and it really sucks that he is able to be free to rob and steal again...

    1. And who is to blame? We the people. The same people who, when we can be bothered to vote, repeatedly vote in the same politicians and the same judges.

    2. Start paying attention to the judges who let them walk. I'm taking names and when a judge gives a stiff sentence I send a thank you post card to the judge.

    1. Well-played, sir!
      I missed the neck tattoo on the somewhat sad-looking Mr Walker.
      But, there it is.
      Shocking! Shocking, I say.

  4. I doubt he has $150 to get out. Can he sell his gift cards to post?

  5. I-bond definition: https://chicagocrimelaw.wordpress.com/2008/06/20/bond-court-assembly-line-justice/
    He walks out with the promise of appearing in court. Good luck with that.

  6. An I bond means he signed a piece of paper saying he will show up to court, no money is needed. I am sure we will see him on this blog again and I am sure he will not be showing up for that court date either. This is just sickening! I wonder if bonds and charges would be increased of these Judges and politicians were crime victims themselves.

  7. Are these what AG Lynch considers low level crime that must not be prosecuted?

    1. Why should she care. She is not going to be a victim since she has her own security detail. It is easy to not worry about thugs with neck tats when you are surrounded by armed guards.

      Funny thing how the soft-on-crime set, like politicians and most Hollywood stars, have an armed security with them at all times.

  10. Double and even triple check that ALL of your doors are locked. On cars, residence's, and garages. We all know if a bad person really wants something they will get at it, at least make it difficult flor them. To many thefts and burglaries occur because it was a a easy unlocked target
