Children Left In Drug House On Monticello

Good morning, everyone, it's 12am. Today's supposed to be in the low 60s with clouds :(. I'll be here until dinner today. Anyway, the clean up on Milwaukee is cancelled for this month. It'll be in June. Nothing else to say. Here is crime for this morning and afternoon.

12:09am - Child left alone. 3144 N Monticello. Several children left along in a drug house. With that, I'm gone for the night. See you all in the morning :).

7:19am - I'm back. Good morning, everyone :).

8:20am - Beat car 2524 is doing a burglary mission on the Beat. Event number is 04977.

10:15am - EMS run. 4254 W Nelson. 58 yr old man on the floor, appears not to be breathing.

11:19am - The 10:15am guy is a DOA at OLR Hospital.

12:15pm - Suspicious person. 2624 N Hamlin. Four males checking out the area like they're up to something.

12:53pm - Burglar alarm. 2706 N Ridgeway.

12:54pm - DUI driver. Fullerton and Cicero. A black car with a plate of H946441 has four males in it drinking. The car's going all over the road. One guy threw a beer out of the car. Heading towards Killpatrick. Just putting this out there because the car's most likely coming into Logan Square.

1:22pm - Gang disturbance. Lawndale and Cortland. Three of them flashing signs on the corner.

1:46pm - Person wanted. Pulaski and Diversey. A green vehicle involved in a hit and run in the 3300 block of N Albany is parked here now and the owner is inside Golden Nugget. The car has a plate of 251380. The car struck a pedestrian and it was gang related.

1:52pm - I need some help here. Can someone tell me what gang(s) the following two taggings belong to? I found the first one in the 2800 block of N Avers and the other one in the 3800 block of W Diversey. The Diversey one says "Koz Park" on it, so maybe it's the gang called "Koz Park Boyz", or maybe it's the Cobras. But, nevertheless, someone help me out with this.

2:01pm - 1) Backlog in 25 at 14:01 hours. 2) Child left alone. Barry and Monticello. A toddler was on the street by himself but the caller picked him up and will wait for the police. Dispatch will check with Zones 1 and 3 to see if they have any missing children.

2:26pm - Disturbance. 4100 block of W Fletcher. Kids riding scooters and stuff.

2:36pm - EMS run. 3160 N Milwaukee. Man fell in the parking lot of the Copericus Center. EMS en route.

3:27pm - Person w/ a gun. Monticello and Wrightwood. Male Hispanic, 16-20 yrs old, black shirt and jeans flashed a gun at passing cars. He's now with a guy who's on a bike and they're heading towards Schubert.

3:50pm - Beat 2505 is doing a park check at Koz.

3:52pm - EMS run. 3719 W Belden. Female took too much medicine.

4:03pm - Battery. 4058 W Armitage. Drug dealer just beat the caller.

4:07pm - Beat 2505 is doing a park check at Mozart.

4:13pm - Traffic accident. Milwaukee and Davlin. Three cars in front of Burglar King.

4:14pm - Disturbance. Armitage and Central Park. Man selling bootlegs.

4:49pm - Beat 2505 is en route to Ken-Well Park.

5:03pm - Gang disturbance. Dickens and Pulaski. Six of them picked up rocks, chased a guy towards Keystone, threw the rocks at him, and are flashing.

5:10pm - Assault in progress. 3716 W Palmer. Two females about to fight with 20 people looking on.

5:14pm - A disregard is given on the 5:10pm job. There's no crowd or females.

5:15pm - Robbery. 1722 N Central Park. A man came into the caller's house while they are outside and robbed the kids.

5:16pm - A total disregard is given on the 5:15pm job. It's an incident between a 3rd graders.

5:25pm - EMS run. 1738 N Harding. Teen bleeding.

5:26pm - Another call just came in for the 5:25pm job. Hysterical female keeps yelling for "911".

5:29pm - Beat car 2532 reports that there's a garbage can on fire at 3951 W Armitage.

5:33pm - I have just one more gang tag photo to share. I'm not sure what this tagging is either. I know that the pitchfork thrown down disrespects the Folk nation and that "D/K" stands for Disciples Killer, but I just don't know which gang did this. Again, I'm trying to find out so I'm aware of what gangs are fighting in this neighborhood this summer. Location of this photo is on George, south side of the street, between Avers and Springfield.

5:42pm - More cars are needed at 741 N Mayfield. Beat 1541's on scene with a big fight. It's out of control. Officers are hollering for units. 1541 is on scene for a domestic.

5:43pm - Officers are still yelling for assistance. Multiple units en route.

5:44pm - A slow down is being given. Multiple teaser deployments have occurred. Paramedics are being called to the scene.

6:30pm - The 6:19pm job is coded. No answer on call back.

6:36pm - Beat 2566 asks for a consentive search event number for 2445 N Harding. It's 13581.

6:43pm - Reckless driver. Fullerton and Pulaski. Red Chevy speeding towards Kostner.

6:47pm - I have to go eat, and with that, I'm gone for the night. See you all tomorrow afternoon. Nighty night :).

8:21pm - Hey, did anyone in the area of Diversey and Ridgeway hear gunshots at about 4am this morning? A source of mine said that they heard four gunshots in the west alley of Ridgeway.

the first picture is the igs the imperial gangsters throwind down dissing the spanish cobras and the second one isnt koz park boyz koz park in spanish cobras hood and every gang around came around and tagged the cobras igz royals you should check this guy out in chicagocoldwar its a guy taking photos of gang graffiti he takes pictures of every gang every hood but he moslty takes pictures of the logan square ares

AvondaleLoganSquareCrimeBlotter said...

I figured the first one was IGs, but wasn't too sure. I was almost thinking it was OAs.

I saw chicagocoldwar's pictures on Flickr. I like that he has so many of them, so it can help me better understand the gangs' taggings around here.

Anonymous said...

it looks like igz tagged up also the cobras tagged up well around the area you live by ridgeway rigth diversey to george is royals then you got cobras mlds oas igs lks ylocs

AvondaleLoganSquareCrimeBlotter said...

I haven't seen any Royals over here in a long while. I've seen Cobras tons of times, though. Seems like they're taking over.

Gangs like the MLDs and IGs are supposed to be further south, but with the way all of these taggings are on the rise, I'm not surprised they they're coming north. The furthest north I've ever heard of IGs coming is Harding and Altgeld (which is one of their sets), and the MLDs at Fullerton and Pulaski.

As for the YLOCs, they're Cobras, at least from what I know. I'm told the YLOCs are just the younger half of the Cobras.

All these gang members have this 'NO FEAR' thing going on, but they are in fact very, very afraid - of what other gang members and other people might think of them.
They let other people's opinions of them rule their behavior, all acting like servants to opinion when they think they're being tough.
It takes way more guts and bravery NOT to do something harmful to others than it does to hurt or destroy, which is the cheapest and easiest thing in the world to do.

yea the royals and the ig's and mld's get along sometimes they ride together just like the cobras and the oa's sometimes,, right now seems to me the cobras are going to be going at it with the ig's they are not too far from the cobras the ig's territory goes from wrightwood until north ave.kimball to harding the pictures you got there are just cobras from kos park they tagged up and their rival came by and "cracked the diamond" to disrespect them ,like the cobras crack the "IG's Crown" main set for ig's st louis and mc lean "devil Side" one of the well known cobra set is fullerton and tripp "No Luv City" but by you timmy is just kos park cobras which most of the time dont get along with other sets.. this summer expect alot of street war so everybody be careful and watch your kids because bullets dont fly straight!

AvondaleLoganSquareCrimeBlotter said...

Anonymous 12:33, I agree to a point. Most gangbangers are really afraid of other gangs, but I don't think all of them are because, for example, we have some Cobras over here that do anything they want. I haven't seen rival gangs come at them yet. And those Cobras that I've seen don't seem to be afraid of anything. They imtimdate people at all costs.

I really agree on your last paragraph. You're 100% correct on that.

AvondaleLoganSquareCrimeBlotter said...

About the Koz Park Cobras, you're right, they don't get along with other sets. They don't get along with anyone, I think. These guys can sure be imtimdating, too.

The Cobras' "No Luv City" at Fullerton and Tripp set is ... well, like you said, well known. They've been there for a long time.

I'm understanding now what you're saying about the IGs. They came up here and did a rival tagging. And they're looking to fight with the Cobras.

Do we know who the OAs (the set from Wellington and Hamlin or George and Harding in particular) are fighting over here? A few people tell me that supposedly, they're going at it with Cobras from Koz Park. And there's some people like you, that say that Cobras and OAs are getting along. The only other gang I can think of over here is Latin Kings (at Belmont and Central Park), so maybe the OAs/Cobras are fighting them?

You're right about bullets not flying straight. And, everyone, consider that a warning. This ain't no lie, that bullets will fly.

Timmy, did you see this?
It happened in our 'hood'
Really sad.

Straight up terrible!
That area by the Congress theater flares up all the time. I'm surprised somebody had the balls to rob a band equipment truck.
makes me wonder if it's an INSIDE JOB. My Ex used to work at the Congress doing bartender duties. There's a whole lotta shifty behavior going on with the management over there.

Thought you might drop this on your blog since you do such a great job.

Keep up the good work!

AvondaleLoganSquareCrimeBlotter said...

I had no idea about it, ARCC, but that's awful. You're right about that area, it does flare up a lot.

I'll put up a short article about it a little later.

how is that sad i dont condone crime but it beats murders and shootings and what do you espect your not in lakeview or lincoln park this is logan square you got yuppies moving in thinking everything is gravy but if any of you noticed that there always been roberies in our neck of the woods but as soon as yuppies came in theres been a boom of roberies home invasions why cause logan is a latino and black neigborhood and when you got yuppies moving in who do you think there gonna go after this crime is the least of my worries i dont know why it even made headlines ehy dont they publish all the shootings that happen here every day ohh yeah that a scare the yuppies

AvondaleLoganSquareCrimeBlotter said...

I guess the robbery is sad because that shouldn't happen to anyone, especially to a rock band, but at the same time, I agree, anonymous 7:16. It does beat murders and shootings.

You're right about the yuppies. I'm White, don't like crime at all, but I'll tell you this. I've been in this neighborhood my whole life and I know what this 'hood is like, for sure. Robberies have always been common here. Hell, even my sister was robbed once.

This story made headlines because it happened to a rock band, but you're right. The shootings should make the headlines.

Anonymous said...

yup i been my whole life here to in logan and im not trying to say nothing against white people not at all im latino and i been robbed a hand full of times im just saying it sucks that they got robbed but then again when a 15yr old kid gets shoot in the head they never put it in headlines they do sometimes but i guess they try to hide the evilside of lagan

AvondaleLoganSquareCrimeBlotter said...

Actually, no post will be done about the band thing. I need to get to bed, and it's not too important (sorry to say).

F said...

So basically what anonymous 7:16 is saying is that no yuppies should move to logan square just because it's a minority neighborhood and they will get robbed. GTFO with that noise. A crime is a crime I don't care what color you are. You aren't doing your neighborhood any favors by posting something like that.

Anonymous said...

Yes I agree with F, prejudice is prejudice whatever. As a white faced European who moved into Avondale last year I guess I might get called a Yuppie. but wtf is a yuppie anyway ?

AvondaleLoganSquareCrimeBlotter said...

F, I agree. It doesn't matter what the color of your skin is, crime is still crime. Just because you're a yuppie doesn't mean you'll get robbed for sure.

Anonymous 3:25, a yuppie is a name for a rich White person, I guess. It took me awhile to understand the meaning of it. But yeah, basically, that's what a yuppie is.

Anonymous said...

no im not saying just cause your white your gonna get picked on no im saying your moving into a crummy neigborhood nothing like lakeview or lincoln park if you guys want tno shootings or stuff like that stay on that side of the woods but if your moving into logan square no matter what theres always gonna be murders and shootings and also what im saying is not cause your white your gonna get picked on if your trying to change a hood thats already crappy into something thats is not then you a get problems if your trying to build condos were there not suppose to there gonna get burned down like they down in humboldt park and garfield park

This is a great discussion thread- lots of thoughts are out there, from lots of voices, and thanks to all of you. I always thought that 'Yuppie' was from YUP, or 'young urban professional.' It didn't have anything to do with race, but instead with a person's job (generally more high-paying) and that they lived in the city. You'll find fabulous as well as horrible examples of people in any way you want to group them, but the one thing nobody can argue with is that we're only alive now, and we are given the freedom of choice to do our best every day. It's a choice... we can choose not to call names. We can choose not to prejudge. We can choose not to hurt others, directly or indirectly, etc. It's the choices we make that show the world our identity, and there's a huge amount of personal power in choosing an action because you feel it's the right thing to do, from a small thing like listening to someone all the way to choosing not to gain personal wealth by hurting other human beings (this goes for unscrupulous home loan officers to drug dealers). Like I said before, it takes bravery NOT to harm others.

Hey cause and gonna, it is because and going to. Im is I'm or I am. Nice to see you accept murder and shooting. Do you not see that is part of the problem. Once this is believed to be normal instead of a crime the problem becames larger.

Anonymous said...

no i dont accept murder but we all know we cant stop it if the cops cant what makes you think we can. That rally we had a while back about people riding bikes to stop the violence it solved nothing that same day three kids got killed what im saying we could decrease the crime but not by rallying or anything like that we have to become friends with the criminals so we can help them gt out the life thee living

Anonymous 4:21, befriending criminals? That sounds just insane to me. No offense, but it really does. As for their life they're living? Most of them chose that path. That's not our fault. They have nobody to blame but theirselves.
