Moline Police believe two Juveniles who were housed at a residential facility in Des Plaines were responsible for hijacking a vehicle from the Moline Wal–Mart parking lot this afternoon around noon.
The juveniles who escaped from a secure facility in Des Plaines around 6:00 AM this morning are suspects in a hijacked vehicle in that city around 6:40 AM. Both juveniles are Guatemalans awaiting immigration proceedings.
A ninety one year old man who was picking up his VA prescription from Wal-Mart was ordered out of his Buick LeSabre by the suspects. The suspects also rammed a vehicle leaving the parking lot in their haste to escape.
Both suspects were captured in Iowa after a short pursuit. Stop sticks were deployed by police near mile marker 221 on I-80 westbound, about 20 miles west of Iowa City. The suspects in the stolen Buick were taken into custody without further incident.
Wal-Mart cameras captured the suspects entering and leaving the store prior to the vehicle being hijacked from the parking lot. The Wal-Mart Store’s quick response with photos aided Law Enforcement in this arrest.

Hard labor camps on the border is the only answer to combat it. If you are illegal and caught, it will be big rock little rock 7 days a week, 16 hours a day, all while the Mexican government pays for it all. I bet the BS would stop then.
According to a report from National Public Radio, the Mexican government through its 50 consulates around the United States has been helping to fund low-income illegal immigrants to apply for President Obama’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, or DACA — which shields illegal immigrants from deportation and allows them to work in the U.S.
NPR’s report details the story of Tania Guzman, an illegal immigrant who said the cost of applying for DACA worried her, but she was able to afford it after her pro-bono lawyer from Public Counsel told her she could access financial help from the Mexican Consulate in Los Angeles.
Mexico paid for all Guzman’s attorney fees and application fees, according to NPR. In the end Guzman told NPR she paid just $50.
The report explains that since 2012, the year DACA began, the Mexican Consulate in Los Angeles has assisted more then 260 Mexican illegal immigrants apply for protections under DACA.
Julian Escutia, an official with the Mexican Embassy in Washington, told NPR that it does not keep track of how many illegal immigrants’ DACA applications they fund, and that funding is “on a case-by case basis.”
"Our main objective is the well-being of our nationals wherever they are," he said. "So what we want for them is that they are successful and really continue contributing to this country [the U.S.],” she told NPR.
