Cops: Miller McDonald's employee had gun under his uniform

GARY | An employee of a McDonald's restaurant in the city's Miller neighborhood was arrested on weapons charges Sunday after a patron called police and said he had a firearm under his uniform.

According to Cpl. Gabrielle King, police were called at 7:41 p.m. Sunday to the McDonald's at Melton Road and Lake Street. When officers arrive, they spoke to the employee and could see an outline of a firearm tucked in the right side of his waistband under his shirt.

King said the employee pulled the right side of his shirt down and when officers asked him if he had a weapon on his hip, he pulled up the left side of his shirt and told them he didn't.

When the officer asked him to pull up the right side of his shift, the employee allegedly ran to the back of the restaurant with officers following him. As the employee ran, his shirt came up and the officer could see the butt of a gun and an extended magazine.

King said the employee ran to an area where three other employees were standing and they all started acting as though they were passing something between them.

The officer noted that he smelled a strong odor of freshly-burned marijuana in the room.


Jeremy Green, 27, of the 5500 block of Grant Street in Gary, was arrested and charged with possessing a gun without a permit, King said.

GARY | A 44-year-old Gary mother was arrested after stabbing her son multiple times in an argument over dinner Thursday night, police said.

Officers were called at 9:30 p.m. to a home in the 2500 block of West 19th Place for a report of a stabbing, Officer Laria Crews said. When officers arrived, they found a 24-year-old male resident of the home bleeding from stab wounds to his neck, ear and wrist.

Police said the son was stabbed by his mother, Tara Daniels, who also lives at the home, in an argument over dinner.

Daniels was being held Friday morning at the Gary Police Department pending approval by the Lake County prosecutor's office of charges related to the stabbing, police said.

The son was transported to the Methodist Hospitals Northlake Campus in Gary for treatment. He was in stable condition Thursday night, Crews said.

Gary man, baggage handler charged in laptop thefts


CHICAGO | A Gary man who worked as a baggage handler at Midway International Airport is accused of making money on the side by stealing laptop computers from passengers' checked luggage, according to an NBC 5 report.

Salvador Johnson, 44, was charged Thursday with one count of felony theft, according to the Cook County state’s attorney’s office.

Judge Adam Bourgeois on Friday ordered Johnson held on a $250,000 bond.

Midway authorities launched the investigation after receiving a number of reports of thefts of Apple computers and other laptops from baggage checked onto Southwest Airlines planes, NBC 5 reported.

Johnson was identified as a suspect because his work station was located near a security screening area where computers are inspected, according to the report.

Authorities said they searched Johnson's Gary home and recovered numerous Apple and other laptops. Pawn shop records reportedly showed he had pawned numerous computers, NBC 5 reported.

If convicted, Johnson faces up to five years in prison. A preliminary hearing was set for Wednesday.

Gary police officer is released on bond from federal custody

A Gary police officer accused of selling cocaine and illegally buying a firearm was released on bond from federal custody Tuesday, court records show.

David Finley, 31, of Merrillville, was released on a $20,000 bond with strict conditions and ordered to appear for a Sept. 10 arraignment.

The Gary police officer was charged last week in a criminal complaint with distribution of cocaine and the straw purchase of a firearm.

Home detention was a condition of being released. He also was ordered to surrender any officer credentials or badges to the Gary Police Department and his personal firearm license to federal officials.

Jury: Gary man guilty in brutal death of woman who gave him a ride home
Image

Lake Superior Court jurors convicted a Gary man of felony murder and other charges in the beating death of a Griffith woman who befriended a stranger by giving him a ride home.

Robert Lewis III, 40, was convicted of murder, murder in perpetration of criminal deviate conduct, criminal deviate conduct and resisting law enforcement in the beating and strangulation death of Jennifer Kocsis, 37. Jurors also acquitted Lewis of murder in perpetration of robbery and robbery charges after about four hours of deliberation.

Lewis did not testify during his trial, which began Sept. 30 before Judge Diane Ross Boswell.

On Friday, the case will move into the penalty phase during which deputy prosecutors Catherine Breitweiser-Hurst and Reginald Marcus must prove aggravating circumstances and defense attorney T. Edward Page is expected to present evidence to mitigate or lessen the possibility of the maximum sentence of life without parole.

In her closing argument, Breitweiser-Hurst said Kocsis paid the ultimate price for her willingness to help a stranger in need. At about 2 a.m. April 2, 2011, Kocsis and Lewis left Pepe’s Restaurant in Griffith, where Kocsis had gone to sing karaoke. Seven hours later, Kocsis’ badly beaten, partially clothed body was found behind the shuttered Riley School, 1301 E. 43rd Ave., Gary.

Lewis had propositioned women in the restaurant bar before he left with Kocsis, witnesses said. The attack began inside Kocsis’ Chevrolet Malibu — her broken glasses and blood were found inside the car, Breitweiser-Hurst argued. Legally blind in one eye, Kocsis got out of the car and was thrown up against it, based on evidence that included a piece of her tooth that adhered to the outside of her car. The assault continued, with her knees and hands scraped and cut as she fought for her life, Breitweiser-Hurst said. Lewis is 6 foot 1 and 260 pounds, and Kocsis was 5 feet 5 and 133 pounds. A shoe print impression was left on her bloody arm.

Evidence showed Lewis’ DNA was found on the steering wheel of Kocsis’ car, and his DNA was also present on an anal swab collected during her autopsy. Kocsis’ car was left a short distance away, and one of Lewis’ girlfriends picked him up outside his parents’ home in the 800 block of East 44th Avenue, a less than 10-minute walk from where the car was left, Gary police Detective Michael Barnes testified.

In his closing argument, defense attorney T. Edward Page urged jurors not to “allow the natural sympathy we feel for such a loss to interfere with your duty as a juror.”

Page argued that the state had failed to prove beyond a reasonable doubt the felony murder charges. Page also told jurors that Lewis’ girlfriend, Chakole Spurlock, knew more than she revealed on the witness stand. Lewis was married at the time. Spurlock admitted she lied to police and was uncooperative initially. Page said it was after Spurlock found out that Lewis was still married that she told police she’d allowed Lewis to burn behind her garage Kocsis’ keys and the jacket, hat, shoes he was wearing the morning of the murder.

Spurlock, who testified under a grant of immunity from prosecution, said when she picked up Lewis from his parents’ home, he had blood on his hands, and he showed her his bloody clothing. She noticed a “smudge” of blood on the leg of his jeans when they were staying at Comfort Inn in Hobart. Spurlock said Lewis told her his friend shot somebody and Lewis “finished him off” by kicking and choking the man.

As police were closing in on Lewis as a suspect in the murder, he led them on a high-speed chase that ended at 35th Avenue and Martin Luther King Drive. He gave several versions of the events that morning.
