Commander's Salute to 13th District Officers

In August of 2007 the 013th District was dealing with an emerging pattern of HOME INVASIONS and BURGLARIES which were occurring during the late evening and early morning hours. Beat 1313 Officers Anthony ACEVEZ and Jason VOGLER armed with information from previous crimes and the offenders description set out on a systematic search of the 013th District for the offender.

On 21 August 2007 at approximately 0045 hours Officers ACEVEZ and VOGLER spotted a man standing at 3031 W. Chicago Ave. drinking a bottle of alcohol who matched the description of the offender in the HOME INVASION pattern. The officers placed the offender (MARTINEZ, Luis ) into custody and transported him to the 013th District for processing. Once in the station Officers ACEVEZ and VOGLER assembled case reports for previous BURGLARIES and HOME INVASIONS in which the offender matched the description of their arrestee. Armed with this overwhelming evidence the officers contacted Area Four Detectives. The detectives immediately put a hold on the offender and began to contact the victims in previous crimes. By the time detectives had completed their investigation the offender (MARTINEZ, Luis) was positively identified in five line-ups and charged with TWO HOME INVASIONS, THREE BURGLARIES and ONE ARMED ROBBERY. Detectives also submitted the offenders finger prints for a print comparison which led to two positive matches and two additional charges of BURGLARY. Detectives were also able to close an additional eight cases with the evidence obtained. 

Due to Officer Anthony ACEVEZ and Officer Jason VOGLER aggressive patrol habits and dedication to serving and protecting the citizens of Chicago, a very dangerous career criminal was removed from streets of this city making it a safer place to live.

One of the offenders was lifting the 2nd offender up to the window and they did in fact get the window opened. When the offenders observed the witness they fled South in the Alley. The witness gave Commander Franklin a detailed description of the offenders, their approximate ages and clothing descriptions, which the Commander immediately gave to the dispatcher. After putting out the “flash” message for the wanted offenders, the Commander began to drive around the immediate area. At 65th and Vernon, Franklin observed three juveniles wearing the same clothing the witness described. Beat 342, Officer V.

On September 7th 2002, Eddie Thomas, a member of the Gangster Disciple (Cabrini) street gang, left his apartment in the company of, and at the request of several other G/D's. After leaving the apartment, the victim was accused of having robbed and shot the brother of Antonio "PMG" Parker, a fellow member of the Gangster Disciples. The victim was then physically beaten by his associates. Shortly after the beating occurred, Parker appeared and confronted the victim. At that time Parker placed the barrel of a handgun in the victim's mouth and fired a shot that killed the victim. Initial A/3 investigation by Detective Thompson identified individuals involved in the physical altercation, and identified Parker as the suspected shooter. Attempts at procuring an arrest warrant for Parker at that time were negative. In 2007 Cold Case Detectives Schorcsh and Johnson renewed the investigation. Previously known and newly identified witnesses were located. The identification of Parker as the shooter was verified. On October 9th 2007, Detectives Schorsch and Johnson, along with members of the Fugitive Apprehension Unit, located and apprehended Parker. After reviewing the facts of the investigation, the CCSAO lodged the charge of First Degree Murder against Parker. This case now considered Cleared/Closed by Arrest.

Cold Case Solves 1979 Homicide--26 Years not enough time to escape murder

In December of 1979, four men were at a nightclub on the West Side of Chicago and began drinking together.  Some time later, they got into a dispute and the offender fired shots inside the establishment, killing the bartender.

The investigation revealed the identity of the offender--but he was nowhere to be found.  He had fled to his native country of Mexico, thinking he could escape justice.

Cold Case Detectives, however, had something different in mind for this offender.

The detectives re-examined the case and learned the offender may have re-entered the country.  Pursuing this information, the detectives continued their investigation, spoke with witnesses and discovered that this murderer had in fact returned to the United States and was in California.

Teaming up with the FBI's Fugitive Task Force, the Cold Case Squad executed a murder warrant upon Roberto Hernandez, for the 1979 shooting death of Bernardo Guillen.  The offender has been charged accordingly.

26 years.  This murderer thought that someone would forget what he had done--that his actions would go unpunished.  He was wrong.

Our hats are off to the Cold Case Squad for their outstanding work.

One case at a time.  Job well done.  Stay safe.

SALUTE

The owner matched the physical description of the offender, and he agreed to accompany the officers to the station. The suspect was brought into the 022nd District where a lineup was conducted.

The suspect was positively identified by the victim as the offender from this incident. The offender was then charged accordingly. Due to the diligent search for the offender's vehicle, and the subsequent investigation that revealed the identity of the offender from this incident, a dangerous felon was taken off the streets.

Thanks for a job well done.

Alderman Tom Allen of the 38th Ward

RE: Conduct of District 16 police officers

Dear Tom Allen,

I was in a car accident on August 4th. I avoided hitting a small boy when he darted out in front of my car, swerved and crashed into a tree. Thank God for Honda and their safe SUV they made that year. I owe my life to the car, paramedics and the two police officers who assisted me.

The officers were Guiterez and Ponti.

They were prompt at arriving on the scene and made sure I was handled with great care. I was told I could be dead right now due to a punctured lung if anyone had moved me too much. I ended up with a broken clavicle, scapula, four broken ribs and two black eyes. I had cuts and scrapes on me and I am sure it was very difficult to get to me or my belongings. If it hadn’t been for their prompt response I could have woke up from being knocked out and injured myself permanently.

I was in the hospital for almost two weeks. After the accident I called the precinct to thank them for all of their help and was so surprised to hear that they were truly concerned about my well being. I almost want to say I could feel over the phone by the tone of their voice how worried they were and how happy they were to know I was alive and well. I made a call into them and they called me back within an hour. I could not believe it. I was also impressed with the time frame of their returned call.

I want to thank you for having people so incredibly strong, calm and concerned to help people when they are in need within your ward. I wish everyone could be like that. It is so nice when you are going through something traumatic and someone you don’t know is extra nice to you. Maybe this is how everyone is suppose to respond but I commend them for it.

I think that is what helps everyone keep on going, to be honest. Please commend these wonderful officers for their assistance.

Thank you for your time and all of your hard work!

Sincerely,

Nicole Neary
