"Senior" On Parole is Charged With Nuts On Clark Burglaries

A 51-year-old career criminal who's currently on parole has been charged with two of the four recent burglaries at Wrigleyville's Nuts On Clark, 3830 N. Clark Street.

Vadillo (Chicago Police Dept)
Armando Vadillo was taken into custody about 40 minutes after the store's fourth burglary was reported at 2 o'clock yesterday morning. Police said they found him at 3930 N. Clark, a senior housing complex that Vadillo lists as his home.

Officers searched the apartment listed as Vadillo's home on Friday afternoon, according to a source.

Vadillo has been sentenced to more than 47 years in prison for eight different burglary cases since 1996, according to state records. He was paroled on December 9 after serving half of a 7-year burglary sentence, according to state records.

According to the Illinois Department of Corrections, Vadillo was sentenced to...
...7 years for burglary in 2012
...6 years for burglary in 2006
...another 6 years for burglary in 2006
...9 years for burglary in 2001
...another 6 years for burglary in 2001
...yet another 6 years for burglary in 2001
...54 months for burglary in 1998
...3 years for burglary in 1996
He's due in bond court this afternoon.

Prior to yesterday's break-in, the flagship Nuts On Clark store was burglarized  during overnight hours on March 29, April 6, and again on May 20.

  1. Between jail, senior housing and a career of stealing this leech has lived off of the work of others for his entire life. pathetic leech = a legacy of shame

  2. Congrats cook co residents

  3. Statistics show that right about now he should be turning his life around.

  4. 47 years of prison time since 1996...

    Now I'm not a genius

    I'm not a parole board member

    Hell I'm not even a gynecologist but...

    I think that this guy isn't going to go straight and might be time he stay in the "pokey" for a long time

  5. "Senior at 51" living in an assisted living building? Do you know what that costs tax payers? There are people in their 60's and 70's with disabilities on waiting lists for years trying to get these apartments. Where did the system go wrong ? Maybe because he only served 1/3 or 1/2 of his prison time on each count and let out early.

    1. Career criminal getting free housing and not the kid where he is imprisoned. Hhhhmmmm I think it's other systems that are far more flawed than the police Dept

  6. So he should have been in prison for about 47 of his 51 years. Yeah, the justice system works. All of these criminal sentences are a joke. It should be simplified. You get 5 years; you do 5 years. The crime rate would drop to nothing.

  7. I bet a lot less stuff goes missing at the senior building while he's locked up, too.

  8. Second City Cop taking note of 019's staff #'s ... insanity.

    And not a single opening in 019 - has Rahm fulfilled his promise to Tunney for selling out the voters for a few bid openings already? 019 is up to strength?

  9. CWB... fyi 3+ robberies sunday night... any info?

  10. Chicago is a great place for criminals, they get away with anything!

    1. True, look at Rahm and Daley.

  11. don"t they do background checks for those senior facilities? I'd hate to think of some real disabled seniors being victimized there. They should do background checks for all government/public funded housing.
