Maywood police executed a raid on April 12 — the second reported raid in less than a week — that resulted in one arrest and the seizure of guns, drugs and cash.

The raid happened at 1904 S. 19th Ave. on Thursday morning at around 6:38 a.m., according to a statement the Maywood Police Department released later in the day.

Members of the Maywood Tactical Unit and a special response team executed the search warrant for Fred Jeter, 30, who officers found inside of the home.

They eventually recovered 24 grams of ecstasy, 743 grams of cannabis, 8 milliliters of THC oil, two pistols and $494 in cash.

Jeter faces charges of possession of cannabis, possession of cannabis with intent to deliver, possession of a controlled substance, delivery of a controlled substance with intent to deliver, delivery of a controlled substance within 1,000 feet of a church and two counts of felony possession of a firearm with a revoked FOID card, police said.

Jeter is expected to appear in bond court on April 13.

This is the second raid that officers have conducted in Maywood in less than a week. On April 9, authorities with the Maywood Tactical Unit, the West Suburban Special Response Team and the Broadview Tactical Unit, seized ammunition, semi-automatic weapons and hundreds of grams of cannabis from 1207 S. 17th Ave., Unit B., in Maywood.

That raid resulted in the arrest of  Jonathan Gilbert, 31, who faces three felony counts of unlawful use of a weapon by a felon, according to police. After an April 10 bond hearing, Gilbert was released on a no-cash bond, police said. VFP

  1. Again, thank you so much to the Police Department for doing their job. I know that this is certainly never a safe situation for them, but I would love to see these every day because I know in Maywood every felon most likely still has a weapon! Sad that this person was just let out with a no cash bond 2 days before this raid. Really?? So I can understand when the police feel why should I do my job when the state doesn’t do theirs or the judges. I know people don’t want to see the jails filled up, but I am sure these guys were pretty serious and would have had no problem shooting and most likely killing someone if it wasn’t at 6:38 in the morning. Good Work Maywood!

  2. Thank goodness the Maywood police are on their toes. The consifscation of the drugs and weapons means less chances of getting killed by the weapons listed.

  3. Because of the way you are writing these Articles you have people in my area feeling like I’m working with the police WHICH AINT TRUE. Social media ruins lives & rumors like that can end lives so you need to watch how you post your issues.
