Chicago fugitive apprehended in Lithonia

- A fugitive from Chicago was apprehended without incident in Lithonia on Friday night, according to the Cook County Sheriff's Office.

Garrett Glover was arrested at 11:20 p.m. in the apartment of a person suspected to be a relative's girlfriend, and was found asleep on the floor, according to officials.

Glover is in custody and will be extradited to Cook County to face charges of escape in addition to parole violations, according to police.

Officials say Glover was erroneously released from the Illinois Department of Corrections and processed onto their parole program on Friday, Feb. 24.
Since learning of his release Monday morning, over 100 members of the Sheriff's office and multiple teams of the United States Marshal's Fugitive Task Forces in Chicago and Georgia have worked around the clock to secure Glover's apprehension.
