[ARCHIVED] Wanted Man Arrested after Avoiding Apprehension for Three Months

Thomas, D

On May 25, 2017, members of the Lake County Sheriff’s Office Warrants Team and U.S. Marshals Service – Great Lakes Regional Fugitive Task Force (USMS-GLRFTF) apprehended Dvino E. Thomas, 31, of the 300 block of Woodcreek Lane, Bolingbrook.


On February 21, 2017, a $500,000.00 failure to appear probation violation arrest warrant was issued for Thomas. The warrant originates from an unincorporated Spring Grove incident which took place in December of 2015, where Thomas was charged with aggravated kidnapping and aggravated battery. Thomas was also wanted on a Boone County drug violation warrant (no bond).


Following the issuance of the Lake County warrant, members of the Lake County Sheriff’s Office Warrants Team along with members of the USMS-GLRFTF began apprehension efforts. Thomas would frequently switch vehicles and stay overnight at different locations, in an apparent effort to avoid apprehension.


On May 24th, members of the sheriff’s warrants team located Thomas driving a vehicle in the area of South Ashland Avenue and West 43rd Street, Chicago. Warrants deputies attempted to stop him, however Thomas fled in the vehicle and avoided apprehension.


On May 25th, warrants deputies developed information indicating Thomas was at his Bolingbrook address. Members of the sheriff’s warrants team along with the USMS-GLRFTF located and successfully apprehended Thomas outside of his residence.


Thomas remains held at the Lake County Jail on the failure to appear warrant. He is next due to appear in court on June 1, 2017 at 9:00AM in courtroom C-202.


Sheriff Mark Curran said, “Often, locating wanted individuals proves to be difficult, as many with warrants attempt to hide and avoid apprehension. This is another example of our warrants deputies working diligently to apprehend a wanted fugitive.”


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