Teen snagged after taunting sheriff’s police on social media about his warrant

August 4, 2018

KANKAKEE — Don’t taunt the Kankakee County Sheriff’s Police on social media when you are wanted on a warrant.

Codi S. Cyrier, of Bradley, is the latest to learn that the hard way. A week after he was featured on the department’s Warrant Wednesday, the 19-year-old Cyrier was nabbed on Thursday by deputies at the Kankakee County Courthouse, according to Chief Deputy Ken McCabe. No reason was given for why Cyrier was at the courthouse.

Warrant Wednesday is a weekly feature posted on social media highlighting alleged criminals who are wanted for skipping court dates or who have been indicted. Cyrier had an outstanding warrant for failure to appear on a driving under the influence of alcohol arrest on July 19. A judge set bond at $5,000, 10 percent.

“(Blank) you piggies you’ll never catch me!!” Cyrier wrote on the sheriff’s police Facebook post of his warrant.

Kankakee Police arrested Cyrier for the DUI on April 22.

Cyrier also has open cases for possession of cannabis, contributing to the delinquency of a minor and possession of drug paraphernalia — all misdemeanors. His next court date on those is Aug. 13.

Back in April, Jacob P. Pitts was nabbed in Guatemala after taunting Sheriff Mike Downey as well as a deputies and corrections officers via social media and emails. Pitts was wanted on a Kankakee County warrant for not appearing at a court date for five cases on Dec. 4, 2017. Pitts was featured in Warrant Wednesday in December 2017.
