Fugitive Chicago cop arrested in Detroit after 15 years on the run

A former Chicago police sergeant wanted on federal drug and conspiracy charges was arrested in Detroit after almost 15 years on the run, the FBI announced Tuesday.

Hicks, 68, has been the subject of an worldwide manhunt since 2003, according to the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

After his Tuesday arrest, Hicks later appeared in court, where he waived his right to a hearing to establish his identity, the Tribune reported.

And boy, is it nearly like the scene of a movie or a crime show. Authorities said his crew would keep the illicit money for themselves and then sell the drugs, the Chicago Tribune reported.

Hicks fled the country on the eve of his trial in 2003 and authorities believed he had gone to Brazil.

But Hicks, though vanished, still looked out for number one - himself- and of course, those he cared for. He'll be transported to Chicago to face the charges.

Eddie C. Hicks is wanted for his alleged involvement in a conspiracy to steal drugs and money from known drug dealers and subsequently sell the drugs to other drug dealers in the Chicago, Illinois, area.

Two years after Hicks went on the run, his signature appeared on land records giving his son, also a Chicago police cop, property on the South Side Hicks used for his $150,000 bond, the newspaper reports.

So the Federal Bureau of Investigation arranged a little bust.

Hicks is the only member of the group that has yet to stand trial for these charges. Hicks, for his part as we know, didn't even bother to show up for his trial.
