DeKALB – DeKalb and Northern Illinois University police arrested 13 people Wednesday who previously had been banned from University Village, 722 N. Annie Glidden Road.
DeKalb police Lt. Bob Redel said all were charged with criminal trespass to real property, a misdemeanor punishable by up to six months in jail and a $2,500 fine.
He said similar checks will occur routinely throughout the city.
“If they do something to get arrested on the property, they will be banned,” Redel said. “People keep going back and committing crimes.”
The sweep started about 8 a.m. and ended about 12:30 p.m.
Arrested were Anthony O. Alfred, 20, of DeKalb; Kendall G. Barber, 22, of Chicago; Jeffrey L. Brown, 28, of Calumet Park; Darryl D. Dandridge, 30, of Chicago; Jordan Davidson, 24, of Elgin; Jeramie Green, 27, of Chicago; Keunte V. Jones, 20, of Chicago; Deangelo K. King, 23, of Chicago; Marquita R. Newton, 19, of Chicago; Devonte D. Oliver, 21, of Chicago; Lenardo Perkins, 33, of Riverdale; Terrell Williams, 22, of Chicago; and a 17-year-old of DeKalb.
Along with looking to remove people who have been banned from the property, Redel said police look for anyone with an outstanding arrest warrant.
“We have done this before, just on a smaller scale,” Redel said. “We only arrested four or five last time.”
