Friday, August 23, 2013 —A 36-year-old Chicago man has been charged with felonies after Cook County Sheriff deputies found evidence of a credit card mill during a court-ordered eviction, Sheriff Thomas J. Dart said today.

About 11:35 a.m. on Wednesday, deputies found a man inside the residence located in the 2200 block of 70th Place in Chicago. They also saw in plain view credit cards, credit card embossers and other equipment used to create fraudulent credit cards.

The man, Davenkeith Howard, has been charged with aggravated identify theft, identity theft, and possession of document making implements. He appeared today at the George N. Leighton Criminal Court Building where he was denied bond for violating terms of his bail bond and received a $150,000 bond for the new charges.

His next scheduled court dates are Aug. 27 for the violation of the bail bond and Sep.18 for the identity-theft related charges. Both hearings will be held at the George N. Leighton Criminal Court Building.

Sheriff Dart reminds the public that the defendant is presumed innocent until proven guilty by the government in a court of law.
