  • remember the tampa incident ?????

    Armed escapee Robert Maday, who was captured today in West Chicago, had scrutinized his aging guards for weaknesses long before he wrested a gun from one of them and fled Thursday, telling them he did not plan on going back to jail, sources said.

    Maday got away from two Cook County state’s attorney’s investigators who were transporting him from the Kankakee County Jail to the courthouse in Rolling Meadows.

    Escapee may have carjacked vehicle in Hoffman Estates
    One of the investigators, who is 60, was once the bodyguard for former Cook County state’s attorney Dick Devine, sources said. The other investigator is a 59-year-old former supervisor who was demoted to investigator after State’s Attorney Anita Alvarez succeeded Devine, the sources said.

    The former bodyguard, who once worked for the Chicago Police Department, was in the back seat with the 39-year-old Maday when the investigator was overpowered and his gun was seized, the sources said. The second investigator was driving.

    The car did not have a barrier separating the front compartment from the rear. The policy of the state’s attorney’s office was for one investigator to sit in the back seat with the handcuffed prisoner, the sources said.

    It’s still unclear how Maday overpowered the investigator — or why investigators were responsible for transporting him.

    But sources said he told a person close to him that he was planning to overpower the “old guys” who had previously transported him to court.

    During his escape, Maday told the investigators that he did not intend to go back to jail, sources said.

    Despite being handcuffed and shackled, Maday was able to grab a handgun from the investigator sitting next to him and use the weapon to force the second investigator to drive the car off I-90 and into a parking lot of a suburban department store.

    He threatened to kill the investigators and swapped his orange jail uniform with pants and shoes from one investigator. He handcuffed them in their car and fled into the Meijer Store in Rolling Meadows. Then he allegedly carjacked another vehicle from the parking lot and made his getaway.

    This morning, Maday allegedly robbed a bank in Bloomingdale soon after hijacking a car from a Hoffman Estates woman. He allegedly robbed the same institution, First American Bank, in 2008, stealing about $7,000, authorities said.

    Maday, who has a long history of robbery convictions, was being transported Thursday from the Kankakee County Jail to the Rolling Meadows courthouse where he was expected to be sentenced to 13 years in prison for four robberies and an attempted robbery he committed last year in Schaumburg.
