    This Was a Long Time Coming

    Harvey police station raided

    WLS By Paul Meincke

    January 24, 2007 - The south suburban Harvey police station was raided Wednesday by a law enforcement task force. It is not clear what they were looking for.
    But last year Harvey officials were questioned about a missing gun that was evidence in a murder investigation. The state police, the Cook County Sheriff's Department and the Cook County state's attorney's office all participated in Wednesday's raid.

    It is certainly not very often that the police raid the police, but that is exactly what happened here Wednesday in Harvey. Members of the state police office of public integrity unit, which includes Cook County Sheriff's investigators along with investigators from the state's attorney office, were inside the Harvey police station for roughly four hours going over records.

    Investigators did not say what they were looking for, but they left with about a dozen boxes of records. Members of the unit arrived at the police station just before noon. A sealed subpoena approved by a Cook County grand jury will allow investigators to confiscate a wide ranging array of documents and records, including murder case and evidence locker files.

    Last summer, a .45 caliber handgun from an accused murderer was found to be missing from a locker and it was somehow returned to the convicted felon. A detective was charged with official misconduct, but law enforcement sources said the detective was only following the orders of Harvey Mayor Eric Kellogg.

    At the time, Kellogg strongly denied that charge.

    "I never was involved in a missing gun. I never told the detective to hide a gun and never broke or violated my oath of office and the trust of the good citizens of Harvey," Kellogg said.

    A larger focus behind this unprecedented raid is said to deal with an unusually high number of unsolved murders in Harvey, many of them gang related. In the last three years, law enforcement sources say there have been 38 unsolved murders in Harvey, a large number for a city of 30,000 people.

    While investigators aren't commenting, candidates who want to unseat the current mayor certainly are planting the blame on Eric Kellogg.

    "Not all the officers are corrupt, but the head person is just corrupt, and it filtered down into all of the departments," said Brenda Thompson, candidate for Harvey mayor.

    "I think he needs to resign and that Jesse (Jackson) Jr. said it best, enough is enough," said Anthony McCaskill, candidate for Harvey mayor.

    In a written statement from Mayor Eric Kellogg released Wednesday afternoon, he says, "I stand in full support of the investigation and pledge full cooperation with the matter as I've always stated. If there are any findings of misconduct on the part of any other officers or employees, I will push for the immediate term ammunition of the individual and individuals involved."

    Ok, so basically a 'problem child' department is getting a much needed spanking. Gotcha.
