No, Elkin Castillo, 47, wasn’t extra early for church service when Chicago PD found him passed out next to a gun in a church parking lot. Not on a Tuesday morning.
Who is Elkin Castillo? He’s a “habitual” thug who fears nothing and cares little about societal norms and laws. He was currently out on $5,000 bail after telling a judge he was indigent after his previous armed habitual felon arrest when he was found with this latest gun and earned yet another arrest. After all, this pillar of the community as convictions for robbery, multiple felony DUIs, even more thefts, and did we mention gun convictions.
He could be a posterboy for the functionally non-existent criminal justice “system” found in Chicago. But we’ve got an even better candidate that we’ll profile tomorrow.
CWB Chicago has the details of this one-man crime wave:
CHICAGO — A 15-time convicted felon, on bail for a pending Class X armed habitual criminal charge, was found lying next to a gun in a church parking lot near the Kennedy Expressway, prosecutors say. Elkin Castillo, 47, is now charged with another count of Class X armed habitual criminal.
His latest troubles began around 5:51 a.m. Tuesday when Chicago police received a call of a person with a gun outside St. Stanislaus Kostka Church, 1351 West Evergreen. The church is right next to the Kennedy, opposite the Salt Shed.
When officers arrived, they found Castillo unconscious in the church parking lot with a gun lying next to him, prosecutors said this week. The cops secured the loaded 9-millimeter pistol and took Castillo into custody.
Who knows, maybe this time he’ll stick around in custody for a little longer. He’ll need $50k to get out soon. But then again, there are plenty of leftist charitable bond organizations that spring mopes like this guy so they can continue to victimize the community.
