UNDERCOVER STING RESULTS
IN ROBBERY TEAM BUST

Home > Press Page

Thursday, March 14, 2013 The Cook County Sheriff’s Police Vice Unit was conducting an undercover human trafficking investigation Tuesday evening when they were able to bust a robbery team in progress.

Responding to a Backpage.com advertisement for a female escort, an undercover officer in the Cook County Sheriff’s Vice Unit set up a meeting at the Red Roof Inn at 2450 E. 173rd Street in Lansing. Upon entering the hotel room, he encountered two males dressed as women. The two men attempted to rob the officer and as he announced his office, they locked the doors and physically attacked him. Despite breaking his hand and having cuts and bruising to his body, the officer was able to apprehend both suspects and the rest of the Vice Unit was able to enter through a window to assist.
