Lewis's Gun Recovered

  • A man who police said had a stolen gun belonging to slain Chicago police officer Clifton Lewis stashed inside a cooler at his Austin neighborhood home has been charged.

    Dimitri Mitchell, 19, of the 800 block of North Leamington Avenue, was charged Saturday with unlawful use of a weapon by a felon and possession of a stolen firearm, police said. Mitchell was ordered held on $150,000 bond today.


    When officers got to his home Thursday afternoon to execute a search warrant, they knocked and waited but ended up forcing their way in. They found Mitchell in the bathroom.


    After a brief interview, Mitchell nodded his head toward a black and gray cooler in the hallway of his home and told police: "The gun's in there in case someone tries to come in," according to a preliminary police report.
Yet another reason why street executions ought to be legal.  No better than grave robbers.

Please put his head in a vice in order to learn anything that would add clarity to that whole senseless act.

Wait.... He has a murdered police officers gun and he has a bond of 150000???? Which means posting 15,000 he's out? How about a bond so he can't get out

good job to the officers involved, it sure does help in closure, in fact the gun and star ought to be encased framed and given to the family.

Dump a perfectly good handgun in the lake ? Are you crazy ? They are not that stupid. Just sell it to someone who does not know its history.

I had a relative who stole a gun from his family, a police officers gun. He sold it for 75 bucks and some weed. It does not take much.

Did this stroke pay the $25.00 to Cook County or did he overlook this bull---- tax? Maybe Toni can get him some super secret double probation.

I would go orgasmic to return as a CPD dick with Dimitri Mitchell in a room at Belmont and Western. I'd probably play "good cop" with a fully-prepped "bad cop" nearby. Mind you, my numerous "interrogation techniques" would pass muster with SCOTUS. Most fun you can have with your clothes on.

The game is afoot.

May Cliff Lewis rest in peace.

Too much information is public these days, it's just the way it is. At least it's good news this time. Respect to the fallen.

Well now if we just had a specially court set up for gun violators, hmmmm call it Gun Court..... Yeah that will do it Prekwinkle.

Seems to me we had a gun court in the 80's as well as auto theft court as well. Just saying.

Why do exempts keep leaking everything?

was there a reason for this story to be out!

Let me guess the LT. can make a call and keep this on the down low to gather more Intel.

We call it a war on drugs yet white shirts want the glory so they can be the next Cynthia White or Henny Penny.

Get a grip we lost one of are own and we cant even keep intelligence in house.

Northside is crazy like a fox. If anybody could have had Gacy confessing in tears, it would be John Northen.

Yes, but you have to know where to look. Someone must have told the reporter where to look

Please. He was a decent Dic, but he wasn't "Super Detective." He is crazy, though, got that part right. His heart is in the right place, just over pontificates.

BTW, good job coming up with the gun. Hopefully it leads to a CC A&P.

Jealous?

I worked with Northen. Love him or hate him, there was none better. Arrests, investigative skills, confessions, tenacity, paperwork, convictions, you name it. If I was a bad guy, I would not want him on my case.

John is a rather litigious man. Care to elaborate on your definitions of "crazy", "decent" and "Super Detective"?
