BEVERLY — After five months of searching, police found and arraigned a man they say moved into single-family homes and illegally rented them out in Beverly and Morgan Park, Ald. Matt O'Shea (19th) announced in a statement Wednesday.
Police arrested Raymond Trimble, 52, on Thursday, making him the third of four alleged squatters brought into custody. Trimble, who was arrested and charged with illegally renting out vacant houses, is being held without Bond, O'Shea said.
Torrez Moore, 55, and David Farr, 45, were arrested in July and charged with burglary, theft and financial-institution fraud.
A fourth suspect, Trimble's 26-year-old son Arshad Thomas, is still at large, according to the statement.
Trimble violated home confinement and electronic monitoring on Nov. 1 following an "unrelated traffic charge," the statement said. O'Shea expects a formal indictment to come down in January.
"I intend to remain personally involved in the prosecution" of all three men, O'Shea wrote in his statement.
O'Shea said police have repeatedly denied requests from Moore and Farr to reduce their bail, which is now set at $500,000 and $1 million, respectively.
