Wrigleyville Gun Arrest Puts Felon Back In Prison

Weapons charges have been filed against a convicted felon who police say was carrying a gun in Wrigleyville late last month.

Parker (Chicago Police Dept)
Three people flagged down an officer after seeing the man’s gun near Dimo’s Pizza, 3463 North Clark around 3 a.m. on September 25.

Police chased the suspect, 35-year-old Darryl Parker, through neighborhood streets before capturing him in the 3400 block of North Seminary. An officer said Parker threw an object during the chase that was later determined to be a loaded .380 Ruger handgun, according to prosecutors.

Parker is charged with being a felon in possession of a firearm while on parole.

The state immediately revoked his parole and sent Parker back to Stateville Correctional Center to serve out the balance of a six-year sentence he received for possessing more than 15 grams of heroin in 2011.

Parker previously served prison time for five separate burglary convictions.

He will be released from Stateville on September 5, 2017.

  1. Robert Vacha, AKA Jacob Lapinskas Milan on Facebook, who mugged the elderly widow in Boystown, was re-arrested and sentenced to 4 years in prison last summer and went to Stateville on July 27th. As of yesterday, October 10th, he is out of Stateville and back on the streets as a threat to law-abiding citizens in Lakeview. Watch out ladies...he/she likes to beat up women for their purses.

  2. I guess it's not surprising at this point in time, but a convicted felon on parole who was caught with a gun while trying to flee the police only gets 11 months in jail. I guess we'll be seeing him again on this website next September.
