BOLINGBROOK — So much for not calling attention to yourself.
Around 7:15 p.m. March 6, an officer was on patrol near Plainview Drive and Summit Lane when he saw Joseph T. Blakemore, 26, “walking down the middle of the street,” Lt. Mike Rompa said.
Curious about the pedestrian’s apparent lack of concern for his safety, the officer approached Blakemore and reportedly detected a strong odor of marijuana about him.
Blakemore stated he had just purchased $200 of marijuana and was carrying about 74 grams with him, Rompa said.
Blakemore, of 843 Beech Drive, was booked into the county jail on charges of delivery of marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia and unsafe walking in the roadway.
An Outlaw in name only
JOLIET — Of course he’s an outlaw!
While suspects remain innocent until proven guilty, Joliet Junior College Police can state for a fact they arrested an Outlaw on March 7.
Chief Pete Comanda said officers were notified by students that David G. Outlaw, 19, was “trying to sell them marijuana at the (campus) bus stop.”
Officers reportedly found Outlaw at the bus stop with eight bags of marijuana. Outlaw, who is not a JJC student, was charged with delivery of marijuana and released from the county jail on $20,000 bond.
Get a room
SHOREWOOD — Not a quiet place to rest.
Excepting Jefferson Street, it’s likely the intersection of Black Road and Route 59 could claim the busiest spot in the village.
Things do slow up around 12:15 a.m., but police say a driver shouldn’t stop for too long.
Cesar E. Ramirez-Toris, 30, was arrested on charges of driving under the influence of alcohol, driving on a suspended license and illegal parking after “officers observed him asleep in his vehicle in the intersection,” reports said.
Ramirez-Toris was released after posting bond.
