[ARCHIVED] Lake County Sheriff’s Warrants Team Apprehends Two Out-Of-State Fugitives

The Lake County Sheriff’s Warrants Team apprehended two out-of-state fugitives in two days. Brandon B. Campbell, 36, of unincorporated Mundelein was wanted on a ‘no bond’ arrest warrant from Douglas County, Nebraska, for aggravated battery and Luis A. Sosa, 28, of Kenosha, Wisconsin, was wanted on a $250,000.00 arrest warrant from Milwaukee, Wisconsin, for aggravated battery.


Officials in Omaha, NE, contacted the Lake County Sheriff’s Warrants Team to inform them Campbell was likely in the Mundelein area, after previously living in Omaha, NE. On November 30, 2016, members of the Lake County Sheriff’s Warrants Team developed information indicating Campbell would be arriving at the Mundelein Train Station at approximately 5:30PM. The Lake County Sheriff’s Office worked with the Mundelein Police Department to apprehend Campbell, as he exited a train. Campbell was transported to the Lake County Jail, where he remains held pending an extradition hearing.


On December 1, 2016, members of the Lake County Sheriff’s Warrants Team and the U.S. Marshals Service – Great Lakes Regional Fugitive Task Force (USMS-GLRFTF) developed information indicating Sosa, a registered street gang member, was living in a residence located near North Delany Road and West Adams Road, Unincorporated Wadsworth. While searching for Sosa, members of the Lake County Sheriff’s Office Warrants Team and USMS-GLRFTF located a vehicle where Sosa was the passenger. A traffic stop was conducted on the vehicle, in the area of Route 43 and Route 137, North Chicago. Sosa was arrested without incident and transported to the Lake County Jail, where he remains held pending an extradition hearing.


Sheriff Mark Curran said, “I’m very proud of the dedication and hard work of the Lake County Sheriff’s Warrants Team. Our warrants team successfully apprehends violent wanted fugitives on a daily basis.”


Undersheriff Ray Rose added, “We’ve built a great relationship with the U.S. Marshals Service- Great Lakes Regional Fugitive Task Force. Through this partnership we have additional resources to keep Lake County Safe, by taking fugitives off the streets.”


Sheriff Curran reminds the public the defendants are presumed innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
