Melrose Burglar Was Released On Parole One Month Ago

Nope! That's not Coolio. It's Venson.
A 22-year-old South Side man, released one month ago on parole, has been charged with Monday’s burglary of a home in the 1700 block of West Melrose, according to Chicago police and state records.

Kaavar Venson was arrested at 10:40 p.m. Monday less than a block from the home he allegedly burglarized, as CWB Chicago reported the next morning. A judge this afternoon set Venson’s bail at $300,000.

Additional burglary charges are possible, according to a law enforcement source.

Venson was released from the Lawrence Correctional Center on parole August 17 after serving a fraction of two 6-year sentences that he received for a 2012 armed robbery and harassing a juror or witness. He was also serving a 3-year sentence for aggravated unlawful use of a weapon in connection with the robbery, court records show.

Other news outlets have misspelled Venson’s first name due to a typographical error in a Chicago Police Department press release.

    1. Really he reminds me of anyone taking a stroll down the street in Lakeview where everyone is trying too hard to stand-out and be unique but they end up all looking the same.

  2. Even if Rahbo hires 970 cops (to get back to 2011 levels), it would not prevent these parole prison releases from causing trouble.

  3. Maybe his prior sentencing was in reverse dog years? What a joke, unreal, not coolio.

  4. So, since 2012...
    - a six year sentence for ARMED robbery
    - a six year sentence for jury / witness tampering (likely threatening)
    - a three year sentence for unlawful use of a weapon during an ARMED robbery.
    Now that's just what we know about. What do we think, maybe 50 other violent crimes? Maybe more?
    15 years worth of convictions and this f~€kwit is out in 3+....
    Jeeeezus. Just who are the real f~€kwits here?

  5. Maybe the poor fellow just got lost and turned around and thought this house was his, south side, north side. Melrose, Colfax. Can happen to the best of us.

  8. CWB can you please explain to everyone how this plan of Rahms to hire almost 1,000 Officers is literally all smoke and mirrors

  9. From the looks of his hair, he seems to have touched some exposed electrical wiring during that burglary. Poor guy, I guess it just really wasn't his day!

  10. The experts on WTTW the other day stated that someone like this just needs free housing in nicer areas of the city to stop behavior like this, keep voting democrat and this is what you get.

    1. Saw that WTTW violence panel too. Let's mandate that every police officer reside in the zip code they work in. Talk about practical answers for complex problems.

  13. So much for our prisons rehabilitating people so they reintegrate into society. Maybe they'll fix him this time around.

  16. He's a repeat offender. Our lawmakers, judges and parole department are failing us. It wouldn't happen in NYC.

    1. Hillary (like Obama) wants to put section 8 in as many neighborhoods as they can -- to break the cycle of segregation between the haves and the have-nots.
