Rumors? or reality?

In the thread titled "Exempt Movement" was the following comment:

Didn't know where to put this so I'll put it here. What the bosses downtown are not telling the press.

The guy who escaped from Cook County Jail with a sheriff's uniform, and robbed the bank, was stopped by P/O's during a confrontation in the 003rd district. Officers made out an armed robbery report for him, albeit that he used a false name. He than asked for a ride to the 95th st,"el" station, but the P/O said she could only take him as far as 67th st. So she did.

Wait......

The next night a lady calls 911 and says "she know that gut that was robbed last night? He used my phone and toilet after he asked for a ride to Gary, IN. I didn't drive him though. I just saw his picture on TV that's him!" So she calls 911 and a beat car from 003 arrives.

The lady gives the P/O's the sheriff's shirt and some paperwrapsthat go around bundles of bills. She tells them she find them hidden behind her toilet.

The P/O's say thanks and leave. Later detectives from the FBI Task Force come into 003 and want to see the items. Guess what?

The officers coded out the job and dumped the items in dumpster. When the P/O's and Task Force go to the dumpster...it has been emptied!! This is not a tall tale. A CR# was obtained on the two P/O's.

Can anyone confirm or debunk this? Did these two incidents involve the same people? Someone is looking at HEAVY time should this be true.

It was two different beat cars.

The first one did involve an RD# for an armed robbery in which the guy gave a false name. He had used the lady's phone and bathroom. He said he was robbed after he left the lady's house. The beat officer happened on the scene as it was going on. obviously didn't recognize him, how many of us would?

The supplementary bulletin with his picture, I pretty sure, didn't come out until after the incidents.

I figured the first incident was like you say. Unless they eventually computerize the bulletins and send them out to the cars, we are sooooo far behind the curve for flash messages.

You know what's sad is that it was an honest mistake that was really no big deal easyly explained on a to-from. Now its a HUGE f up that when the FBI is done with them they will be in cook county jail trying to escape.

Fact - the lady set up the escapee to be robbed by some of her friends and he got cut in the process. First beat car interrupted the robbery on-view but "victim" refused to cooperate but did agree to case report at P.O's insistence. He was treated by paramedics at scene and then driven to train.

Fact - the lady called police looking for a reward - can prove it but she probably made up the information about the bag's contents because 2nd set of officers were old tact guys and not likely to toss evidence or devalue it in heater case.

The first car did the report for the robbery, the second car with the FTO and the recruit came to the woman's house, picked up the clothes and bands from the money, and threw it in the garbage, where a private company picked it up before FBI could get there
