The arrests of two brothers after a police raid in Uptown has many people in that neighborhood jumping for joy.

Both men, whose family has been at the center of more violence and crime than most Chicagoans will ever see, are facing a variety of felony charges, police said Thursday.

Chicago cops and federal drug enforcement authorities raided the home of 18-year-old Jabri Sims and 21-year-old Jordan Sims in the 4400 block of North Malden around 3:45 p.m. on Tuesday, according to a source.

Jabri Sims is charged with felony possession of a firearm with a defaced serial number; two felony counts of possession of a controlled substance; and one felony count of manufacturing and delivering cannabis.

He was found in possession of 90 grams of suspected heroin worth $13,500, $600 worth of pot, and a defaced 6-shot revolver, according to prosecutors.

His older brother is charged with two counts of possession of a controlled substance.

Cops say Jordan Sims was in possession of about $70 worth of cocaine and a suspected Ecstasy pill.

A police press release stated that Jabri Sims was also found in possession of a semi-automatic handgun, but no related charges were filed, according to a CWBChicago review of court records.

Authorities' interest in the CHA building at 4425 North Malden heated up after a suspected gunman and witnesses were seen running into the back door of the complex moments after a 17-year-old boy was shot in the head nearby on April 29.

No strangers to violence, the Sims' older brother, Gregory, was shot dead in Uptown at 2:42 p.m. on a sunny September afternoon last year. He'd been released from prison less than two weeks earlier.

An Uptown pastor raised his hand to the sky in prayer while a complete stranger administered CPR in an unsuccessful attempt to let Gregory Sims live another day.

Chicago police records show that Jabri Sims has been arrested eight times in the eight months since Gregory Sims was shot dead. Charges against him have included receiving-possessing a stolen motor vehicle; drug possession; theft; and reckless conduct.

The Sims brothers' mother still lives in the 4425 North Malden building, a hotbed of Black P Stone gang activity.

The day after her son Gregory was killed, a woman identified as Tracy Sims wrote a comment on CWBChicago.
"He was a child of God who is a angel in Heaven now. 1 thing for sure is just we all were born we all got to die and no one know when,where,why or how..... so who knows what will be said about you when it's your turn ijs. Mrs.Sims"

  1. Ms. Sims is not going to win any Mother of the Year awards. Can't wait to hear why her son was arrested 8 times this past year and still on the streets. Is this a "Luckman special" to the community?

  2. Arrested 8 times in 8 months and still out on the streets. Tom Dart is knocking down jail buildings and bringing inmates pizzas. Why would these guys stop creating mayhem?

  3. The Spawn of Satan.

  4. Hey Tracy, do you take any responsibility? I know you are reading this.

  5. Drop these guys off about 5 miles east of Montrose Beach, see if they can swim home. Good job police and feds.

  6. According to Uptown Update, Judge Paranese, released Jordon on bond. Maybe CHA should evict him from his mother's apartment so the legitimate residents can feel a little safer

    1. Shouldn't the mother be evicted? I thought that this was SOP with public housing...

    2. Felons are not allowed on cha property. See how well that's being enforced?

  7. They'll be back out in no time.

    A criminal record on paper doesn't mean anything when you never intend to join civilized society.

    Until crime means long jail sentences -- or worse, there will be no bargaining with these people. Crime literally pays for some in this city, and crime is NOT going to stop with the joke of a legal community we're stuck with in Cook County.

  8. I'm comforted reading this blog---I realize moving out of state was in no way a mistake. Hahahahaha!

  9. These young entrepreneurs shouldn't be penalized for trying to make a living.

  10. What a group of pieces of shits you raise and Sims... your entire family are felons... I'm renaming you Ma Barker

  11. Mrs. Sims, You are correct in that nobody knows what will be said about us. But I do know, nobody will say I was a violent felon who victimized the good people of this city. Nobody will say I was a burden on society. That can't be said about the boys you spawned and let loose on this city.
