Undercover Narcotics Cop Robbed During Wrigleyville Sting

An undercover police narcotics operation has resulted in the arrests of 18 men on the streets of North Side entertainment districts this month. And, in true Wrigleyville fashion, one arrestee tried to rob the undercover cop!

Williams
Paris L. Williams of the South Deering neighborhood is charged with battery and theft after police say he punched an undercover narcotics officer in the face and took $50 in pre-recorded currency at 1109 W. Addison on last Friday evening, according to court records.

Williams is a member of the Gangster Disciples street gang.

Other arrests in our neighborhood during the operation include:

Givens
• Andrew Givens, 27, of Auburn Gresham is accused of selling a gram of cocaine to an undercover officer outside of Roscoe’s Tavern, 3356 N. Halsted, on August 19. Police say they found six bags of suspect cocaine as well as pre-recorded currency in Givens’ possession at the time of his arrest. He’s charged with manufacture-delivery of cocaine near a school and possession, both felonies.

Crockett
• Travis S. Crockett, 36, of Englewood is accused of selling five grams of cocaine to an undercover officer outside of Slugger’s World Class Sports Bar, 3540 N. Clark, on August 12. Cops say they found four baggies of marijuana and one bag of cocaine in Crockett’s possession along with $40 in pre-recorded currency. He’s charged with manufacture-delivery of cocaine near a school and two counts of possession.

Pelt
• Daniel Pelt, 57, of Belmont Cragin sold cocaine to an undercover officer outside of Sports Corner at Sheffield and Addison on August 12, police say. He’s charged with one count of manufacture-delivery of cocaine near a school. Pelt is a member of the Conservative Vice Lords street gang, according to police records.

Meanwhile, a 100-minute-long undercover narcotics operation near the Gold Coast’s Division Street bar district resulted in 15 arrests last Thursday.

According to court records, the 15 men were arrested between 3:50AM and 5:30AM for offering to sell drugs to or asking to buy drugs from undercover officers at Clark and Division.

All of the cases involve attempts to purchase or sell crack or heroin.

  3. Looks like Givens is just going to relax and take a nap and hope for Luckman to find no probable cause even with the mountain of evidence. Nice work CPD, hope the system doesn't spit him back out to return to our hood as usual.

    2. Exactly. These aren't arrests made by a district or tact team, it's a unit arrest. There's more evidence involved and it goes to a grand jury for indictment. Recent state laws have changed after Obama admin pushed for the decrease in penalties for non-violence related offenses (even if the drug dealer had a weapon him but didn't use it, Obama believes it shouldn't be an aggravating factor). This isn't about politics, so don't jump down my throat, this is what the POTUS said and pardoned convicts for.

      Cops will tell you recently the changes include:
      - no ANOV or arrest will be conducted for cannabis under 10gr
      - juveniles caught smoking weed will not be taken home nor will ROs be able to notify their parents
      - In such cases, a new cook county ticket form will be given, even for minors
      - no vehicular Impounds for under 10gr of weed
      - Felony cannabis possession raised from 30gr to over 100gr
      - interstate trafficking of controlled substances raised to 500+gr (1/2 kilo)

      I'm sure there are more but that's what I remember reading on admin messages and at role call. I don't go through anyone anymore and rarely make stops. If my PC for a stop is cannabis because I smell it. I simply ask "sir, do you have cannabis or any other contraband on you or in your vehicle?" Of course, the answer is "no." After a quick name and registration check, "alright sir, have a good night."

  4. THANK YOU, CPD! THANK YOU!!!! Now let's home they go before an actual judge and not a human joke wearing a robe.

    THANK YOU!

  5. Nice work CPD! Maybe if they did a sting for robberies, they'd catch even more. All they'd have to do is walk around the neighborhood in the middle of the night and they're sure to be robbed. Don't even have to look drunk or advertise their cell phone. Love this story and would love to see even more.

  6. Always happy to see this proactive policing, but let's not forget: These shitheads would not be coming into our community selling coke if there weren't shitheads IN our community buying it.

    1. Exactly they also should be picked up/in jail!

    2. They should get the same sentence as those who sell it, maybe that would make people stop bringing these criminals to our neighborhoods

    3. Well not trying to justify cocaine use but it's bro's & ladies around sport bars buying it not junkies. It's like a weekend or party thing for people.

  10. Great to see this, and at the same time upsetting to know that regardless of offenses or records, these gentlemen will be on the streets again in short order.

  12. the bars have bouncers to notice this type of behavior "sales men" loiters pestering begging people and they need to call police for these suspicious people from the entrances/ lines of customers for the bars. Also business owners need to notice graffiti in front of their businesses and simply call it in

    1. they need to call police ...
      I don't disagree but I have a question. Does the number of 911 calls negatively affect the bar when their liquor license comes up for renewal?

      Delete
    2. The number of 911 calls won't affect anything at all....depending on how much you tip...your alderman.

  13. Wow, awesome work CPD! This is really proactive and great news. Hopefully judges will not let them out within days to continue destroying Lakeview. Also, bar bouncers need to be calling police. There is no reason that multiple drug dealers should be standing in front of Roscoe's in the middle of the night.

  14. Glad to see all this good work being done by the CPD. Especially down on the Gold Coast which turns into the Ghetto Coast as it gets late. To me, it's not a black and white thing. It's a respect thing. Come down and have a good time. Just don't trash things up.

  15. Just don't let them out. You know, they get a good defense lawyer (Sam Adams) and get out on bail. Don't let them out. Who's the judge?
    Geez, didn't the police just round up 100 gang members last week? They just keep coming don't they?

    1. Sam Adams is a nice guy but a theatrical shark in the courtroom. He plants the idea that you're a crooked cop without ever saying it. He'll say, "officer, you're taught in the academy to be honest and truthful, right?" "Would you consider your testimony truthful?" Constant rhetorical plug make jurors ask themselves, "why is he asking this officer if he is truthful, honest and trustworthy?" Adams came up with the most ridiculous lie about one of my stops and "witnesses" that were not there and claimed to be there testified. It was comical. The judge said "I don't know who to believe" and rendered not guilty.

      Yawn, I don't care. Believe the criminal, I gotta get back to my Netflix.

  16. CPD, please please please do a sting at Belmont and Sheffield. You will need multiple paddy wagons.

  17. Good work CPD. 18 down, 10,000+/- to go.

  18. Glad to see the change of attitude towards police narcotic under cover arrests. The June 30th article that listed 27 arrests was followed up by comments of "waste of time" and "poor use of police". The people out there selling need to be out of our community. If they are selling weed a block from a school or cocaine on the street in front of a bar, they have no place here. Its not safe.

    1. You are correct! This isn't hassling a couple of hippies, these are hard core gang bangers who kill, beat, murder etc. to support their business. Take them down.

  19. CWB: can you comment on how best northsiders can pressure judges to follow the sentencing guidelines to stop the revolving door of these asshats? Thank you.

  20. There isn't a change of attitude. This is just an OCD buy/bust team. It's very common for the buy officers to get robbed. They do low-level buys and short term investigations. This just usually just doesn't make the news. These coppers don't do any other arrests unless it falls in their lap. So, aren't they usually just "hassling hippies?" It's just weed, blows, rocks, mollies, lean and coke, right? It's all cumulative.
