Man on electronic monitoring for his 4th gun case had a gun in his pocket during a traffic stop

The Windy City — During a traffic stop Monday in Chicago, a man on electronic monitoring for a Class X felony gun case was found to have an automatic pistol in his jacket pocket, according to prosecutors.

During a hearing on Tuesday afternoon, Judge David Navarro decided to hold Deray Calcote, age 23, without bail.

The juvenile court found Calcote guilty of gun charges in 2015 and 2017; in 2019, he was found guilty of aggravated unlawful use of a weapon. When police in Chicago heard a gunshot, they pulled over the car and discovered a wounded passenger in the front seat. According to the prosecution, law enforcement saw Calcote conceal a firearm with an extended magazine on the rear floorboard.

Then, in October of that same year (2020), Calcote allegedly ran from a car parked next to a house where police were conducting an investigation, prompting the police to give chase. During the pursuit, officers claimed to have seen him toss a loaded 9 mm handgun with a 27-round drum magazine over a fence.

The judge released him on his own recognizance despite the Class X armed habitual criminal charge brought by the prosecution. Calcote skipped court and now owes the court $3,000 by July 2021 to cover the bail he was required to post. Prosecutors claim that Calcote owed another $2,000 to return home on electronic monitoring after he failed to appear in court again in November 2021.

On Monday around 11:30 a.m., he was riding as a passenger in a woman’s car in the 2700 block of East 79th Street when police stopped them. He was still wearing his ankle monitor. Because the woman’s license was suspended, the police pulled them over and asked them to step out of the car. When they did, they allegedly saw an ammunition magazine protruding from his pocket.

Final Words

He was riding as a passenger in a woman’s car in the 2700 block of East 79th Street when police stopped them at approximately 11:30 a.m. on Monday. He was still wearing his ankle monitor. While asking him and the woman to exit the vehicle on suspicion of the woman’s suspended driver’s licence, police allegedly noticed an ammunition magazine protruding from his pocket.
