Rockford Cops Bust Fugitive Who Mugged Boystown Widow

Just as one local fugitive has been rounded up, two more criminals awaiting trial have gone missing as Cook County's defendant-friendly court system continues to put dangerous (and allegedly dangerous) people back on the streets.

Boystown Widow Beater Found

Vacha (Winnebago Co. Sheriff)
Robert Vacha, who received a laughable 30 months probation for mugging a 61-year-old woman in Boystown the day after her husband died, has been rounded up and returned to Cook County after going AWOL from court supervision.

After Vacha violated the terms of his probation last summer, a judge ordered him to live in a facility on the city's South Side.

An arrest warrant was issued because, rather than live in the facilty, Vacha fled to Rockford, IL, where he posted liberally (and publicly) on Facebook for over a year. 

His luck ran out a couple of weeks ago when Winnebago County sheriff's deputies came knocking on his door.

The Winnebago County authorities were much nicer to Vacha than Vacha was to that poor widow on Halsted Street.

See ya sooner than we'd like.
"Cops suck," Vacha wrote in his final Facebook post, "but they help me out let me smoke and drink befor going to jail."

Vacha is now being held without bail in the Cook County Jail.

In The Wind

Jackson
Meanwhile, two men who were freed to await trial in separate local cases have gone missing, according to court records.

First up: Antoine Jackson. He's accused of pointing a gun at man's head as the Red Line train they were riding pulled into the Addison station this spring.

But, he failed to show up in court this month and nobody seems to know where he is. He's charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and possession of a replica firearm. (The gun turned out to be a look-alike BB gun.)

Brewer
Also missing: Cornelius Brewer. He's facing charges of aggravated robbery, battery, and theft of lost or mislaid property after a Lakeview landscaper was allegedly pushed to the ground and robbed of a leaf blower in May. But, Brewer never showed up for his court date this month and he, too, is out there wandering the streets. Be sure to say "hello," if you see him.

  1. Dear Mr Vacha
    I'm glad the cops were nice to you. It reflects well on them. That's good. Most cops are, in fact, nice people.
    But you weren't so nice. Now the rest of society must extract a penalty, because you robbed a 61 year old widow. Not the cops...us...the rest of us must extract a penalty.
    I propose that you get dipped in a vat of leprosy. Half way up. You choose. Vertical dip or horizontal dip. Those nice officers will explain the difference to you.

  2. Wow, look at that smirk in Vacha's mug shot! What a tough guy! Although I guess mugging a 61 year-old woman should've been our first signal that this human chia pet is a total badass.

  3. The officials are soft on criminals because they too are criminals.

  4. It must be hard to resist the urge to slap that smirk off Vacha's face.

    1. If you look at his earlier arrest photo, before they cut his hair, he has the same stupid look on his face.

  8. most likely he was assigned for counselling at the Center On Halsted or Howard brown health center and then he beat some ones grandmother. We need new laws against the centers that "think" they can counsel criminal violent behavior out of thugs

    1. You haven't been paying attention. Not only was this loser assigned counseling at Center on Halsted, he was REWARDED with a free 90-day culinary class at CoH after he committed the crime.

  9. I'm so glad he got locked the fuck up. Stealing liquor, having sex without disclosing certain things, that horrible hair cut and smile... Thank god!!!

  10. Didn't he move in with someone who works at the Crib? I guess Crib does work. You got the head of the Crib who use to let them get away with shit. Someone else who makes deals to house them in return for sex. Them tell people they can't come in to get people they want in. The Crib needs to go. It breeds things like Robert Vache yuck!!! :-)

    1. He was living with his mommy in Rockford when he was arrested. She is currently raising yet another future criminal, his young brother.

    2. So not true about The Crib
      Please get your facts straight !!!

    3. No it's true... I had and currently have clients that stay at the Crib... he was dating someone named Sincere... he busted the Windows of the staff member car... facts are extremely right. Must be someone who works at the breeding ground for criminals in our area...

  11. I *knew* little Robert would be back on these pages again some day, and there he is. Of course he should be locked up for a long time based on the "hairstyle" alone. Quite a turd-smirk in that mug shot.
