Anthony Hawkins, 34, is charged with illegal gun possession and resisting an officer, Chicago police said.
Hawkins, who had an active arrest warrant, was seen by officers surveilling a “narcotics hot spot” through POD video cameras about 6 p.m., police said.
Police identified him and called in officers to the 5000 block of North Winthrop Avenue, where Hawkins was arrested after allegedly resisting officers, police said.
Officers allegedly found a gun on him, police said.
Hawkins was wanted for forfeiting his bond in a criminal trespass to vehicle charge from August 2019, according to court records. He was on parole for a drug charge and ID theft charge.
Judge John F. Lyke set Hawkins’ bail at $1,000 at a hearing Monday afternoon, with the condition that he be placed on electronic monitoring if released, according to Cook County court records. His next court date was scheduled for Feb. 18.
