Chicago Police Serve Search Warrant - Find Large Drug Operation in 20th District

On April 22nd, 2017, Chicago Police Spokesman Anthony (AJ) Guglielmi tweeted that a suspect named Reggie C. Catayong had been arrested after following a Chicago Police Officer after court and threatening that officer. Chicago Police had obtained a search warrant for Catayong's home after that incident, and found what Guglielmi said was a "significant drug operation inside his home"

This is Reggie Catayong's Arrest from March 26th, 2017 at 4870 N. Francisco on beat 2031.

This is Reggie Catayong's Cook County Jail Individual Inmate Report. Reggie has been held by the Cook County Circuit Court with NO BOND.

Apparently, the County Sheriff was updating the record when Chicago-One checked-in on Catayong. The full record should be up within 24 hours.

Edit - 3:08PM, 22 April 2017 NBC Chicago reports the following facts:

Catayong was charged with one count of harassing a witness, six counts of possession of a controlled substance, one count of marijuana possession over 5 kilograms and one count of possession of hypodermic needles – all felonies, authorities said. He was also charged with one misdemeanor count of possession of a replica firearm

42-year-old Jack Artinian, of the 2200 block of W. Farwell Ave. in the West Rogers Park neighborhood, was charged with one felony count of harassing a witness, according to police. Both men are accused of following the officer in a vehicle as the officer left court in the 2400 block of W. Belmont Ave. in the city’s Lake View neighborhood, then following the officer more than three miles north to the 2800 block of W. Catalpa Ave., where police said Catayong shouted “We’re going to get you!” at the officer while in traffic around 2 p.m. 

The two were subsequently stopped and taken into custody in the alley of the 5100 block of N. Troy St. in the city's North Park neighborhood. Police say Artinian was driving the vehicle that followed the officer.
