[ARCHIVED] Rockford Man Wanted for Fleeing, Weapons, and Drug Offenses Apprehended


On October 18, 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 Jordan P. Carmody, 23, of the 2500 block of North Rockton Avenue, Rockford.  Carmody was wanted on a felony warrant for Unlawful Use of a Weapon (Enhanced - Class 3 Felony), two counts of Aggravated Unlawful Use of a Weapon (Class 4 Felonies), Aggravated Fleeing a Peace Officer (Class 4 Felony), and Unlawful Possession of a Controlled Substance (Class 4 Felony).

On October 18th, members of the Lake County Sheriff’s Office Warrants Team located Carmody inside of his residence in the 2500 block of North Rockton Avenue, Rockford.  Carmody was found hiding in a bedroom closet, underneath a blanket.

Carmody was arrested and transported to the Lake County Jail where he remains held on $75,000.00 bail.  His next court date is October 24, 2017 at 1:30PM.
