Alert Man Helps Nab Accused Thief

Hears scanner report, spots suspect, calls cops

By Tim Hadac
Managing Editor
Southwest Chicago Post

An alert 53-year-old Garfield Ridge man’s actions are being credited with helping Orland Park Police nab a man who allegedly stole a $7,500 engagement ring from a jeweler in Orland Square Mall.


The good Samaritan said that as he and his girlfriend drove to the Michaels crafts store at 151st and LaGrange Road at about noon Friday, Sept. 14, he was using his handheld scanner to monitor suburban police and fire calls.

“Fortunately, Orland Park's Police channels are non-secure, analog conventional and made available to the general public—for the good guys and gals to listen to,” he said. 

As he heard the call about the theft (which included a
description of the suspect and which noted that he ran west across LaGrange Road), he jokingly asked his girlfriend, "Wouldn't it be just my luck if we ran into him at Michaels?”
“As I was walking into the store, I couldn't believe it,” the Garfield Ridge man continued. “Standing in front of me was a ‘possible’ offender--same race, physical description…he was acting very suspicious in the store and frequently staring out the front of the store as if he was waiting for a ride. He was pacing the aisles of the store, and just acting suspiciously.”

The good Samaritan stepped outside the store and called 911 to alert Orland Park Police.

They responded and apprehended 24-year-old Terrence T.
Terrence Sanders
Sanders, of south suburban Richton Park.


An OPPD commander said that Sanders posed as a customer at the Jared jewelry store in the mall but then snatched the 2.5 karat, white gold engagement ring from a clerk and then fled on foot.

The commander added that Sanders was positively identified by a Jared employee, and that the ring was recovered from Sanders.

Sanders was charged with one count of felony retail theft and held in lockup pending a bond hearing the next day.

The good Samaritan said that among other things, the incident showed the value of police departments having non-encrypted communications systems accessible to the public.

This is a perfect example of a law-abiding citizen who is alert, aware and willing to get involved. Could have looked the other way, but didn't. An example for all of us to emulate. A tip of our cap to this good Samaritan!


Crime News Update

Editor's note: The crime news reported by the Southwest Chicago Post---taken directly from Chicago Police Department incident reports---is not by any means an exhaustive catalogue of all crime reported in the Chicago Lawn (8th) District. For example, it typically does not include news of crimes committed in the eastern and southern sectors of the district---because the Southwest Chicago Post's coverage area is primarily the neighborhoods that border Midway Airport and secondarily because including the relatively large volume of crime news from elsewhere in the district would be a logistical challenge. We make this note to offer a little helpful perspective and remind everyone that while crime is definitely a concern in all parts of the district (as it always has been), crime remains relatively low overall in the western section of the district. May all of us work together diligently to keep it that way. May all of us also remember that a person charged with a crime is presumed innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.

Rainbow Motel gets honey-do list

Aldermen, Garfield Ridge Neighborhood Watch demand improvements


By Tim Hadac
Managing Editor
Southwest Chicago Post

With more than 200 Garfield Ridge residents signing a
petition urging City Hall to bring a “nuisance case” against the Rainbow Motel, 7050 W. Archer, the Chicago Department of Business Affairs and Consumer Protection has handed motel owners a suggested plan of improvement.

In recent weeks, a number of Garfield Ridge residents—many with the Garfield Ridge Neighborhood Watch crime fighting group—have complained to 23rd Ward Ald. Silvana
Tabares and 13th Ward Ald. Marty Quinn that the motel is a haven for misdemeanor crimes like prostitution, drug abuse, public urination and defecation, harassment of local school children and more.

A nuisance case can be a first step towards revocation of a business license.

While compliance with the BACP points is voluntary, attorney
Marianne Rieger said the process—in which BACP brings together businesses and neighbors with concerns—is successful a majority of the time.

In the conference room on the eighth floor of City Hall on September 11 were Rieger and another BACP employee, Tabares, Quinn, five GRNW members, Chicago Lawn (8th) District Commander Ronald Pontecore and two members of his leadership team, and five men who said they were either owners or employees of the Rainbow—as well as Rainbow’s attorney, Adeena J. Weiss-Ortiz.

After hearing the views of Tabares and Quinn, as well as various complaints from each GRNW member and Pontecore’s assertion that CPD has received 46 calls for police service at the site since January, the Rainbow’s owners and employees—who signed in but did not identify themselves verbally—answered several basic questions from Rieger about the motel’s operation.

Rainbow representatives appeared to disagree among themselves somewhat on exactly how many people they employ, how many rooms they have for those seeking lodging and how many security cameras they have installed.

When asked if their security cameras are linked to OEMC (the Chicago Office of Emergency Management and Communications), one Rainbow representative asked what OEMC is.

An increasing number of businesses and even homes across the city have voluntarily linked their cameras with OEMC, to provide extra sets of eyes for police.

The steps offered by Rieger recommend that Rainbow officials:

• Keep a log of registered guests and visitors, and make that available to BACP, to ensure that no more than two people are in any room at any given time.

• Maintain a cleaning log showing that both the inside and outside of the premises are cleaned twice daily.

• Keep a log of calls made by motel employees to 911, reporting suspected criminal activity.

• Link their security cameras to OEMC.

• Increase the hours of their security staff from 10 p.m. to 6 a.m. Friday and Saturdays to 3 p.m. to 6 a.m.

• Reach out to the community to address concerns, by attending CAPS Beat 811 meetings, as well as GRNW gatherings.

At several points in the meeting, Weiss-Ortiz pushed back against the list, questioning whether BACP has the legal authority to make some of the recommendations.

Rieger herself pushed back by saying if the Rainbow Motel chooses to contest the voluntary suggestions, BACP would be willing to make the next meeting a disciplinary one.

Later in the day, Weiss-Ortiz said the motel “will be undertaking all necessary steps to promote the safety and welfare of the Garfield Ridge citizens and residents. Rainbow Motel remains steadfast in their desire to contribute and foster the safety of the neighborhood, both in the past and the future. Rainbow Motel has promoted both the safety
and aesthetics of the community at all times relevant
by having their property properly maintained and groomed, coupled with a security staff, prior to any intervention by the City. Rainbow Motel looks forward to a long standing, amicable relationship with the City and the community.”

Rieger said BACP will meet again with Rainbow representatives to check on compliance at 11 a.m. Friday, Oct. 12 in Room 805 of City Hall. Presumably, Tabares and Quinn will attend again and invited those who have signed the petitions to join them.

Those with questions about the petition are invited to call Tabares’ office at (773) 582-4444.

The Rainbow Motel has been around since 1954. Its tall sign was reportedly erected in the early 1960s so that motorists on the new Southwest Expressway (which opened in in 1964 and was later renamed the Stevenson).

The Rainbow expanded in the 1970s when it absorbed what had been a fast-food restaurant, according to a WBEZ-FM report last year that quoted manager Sagar Patel.

Over the years, its imaginative and occasionally outlandish “theme rooms” have included a pink palace, a space-walk room, a Valentine’s suite, a Las Vegas room, a “night in Paris” room and more.
