Freeport, Illinois — On Tuesday the Freeport Police, assisted by the U.S. Marshals office, arrested 22 year old ex-convict and recent parolee from the Vandalia Correctional Center, Deandre Farrille of Freeport on an outstanding warrant alleging that he (Farrille) shot 19-year-old Montrell Scott.
Farrille, the 22 year old ex-convict and recent parolee from the Vandalia Correctional Center has been charged with aggravated discharge of a firearm, unlawful possession of weapons by a felon and aggravated battery with firearm, again.
Catch that? Yeah, again.
See this guy, Farrille, the 22 year old ex-convict and recent parolee from the Vandalia Correctional Center just got released from prison. The Illinois Department of Corrections Internet Inmate Status website says his parole date was September 16, 2016.
We didn’t reach out to the correctional center to confirm whether he was actually released on that date or not but nonetheless, he was released and on October 25 just 39 days later this “bad apple” turns right around and allegedly shoots a 19 year old.
All right here in our city of Freeport.
On April 15, 2014. The Journal Standard reported that Police arrest Farrille and charge him with three counts of aggravated, unlawful use of a weapon.
On December 4, 2014. Freeport Police reported that Deandre T. Farrille, 20, of Freeport, was arrested on 12-4-14 on felony charges of Unlawful Possession of Weapon by a Felon, Possession of a Firearm Under 21 Years Old.
The report states that on the evening of December 10, 2014, Farrille was served at the jail with two additional misdemeanor warrants for the offense of Aggravated Assault for incidents that occurred on December 2nd and December 3rd in which he reportedly threatened two individuals while armed with a handgun.
On March 4, 2015, according to the Illinois Department of Corrections Internet Inmate Status website, he was arrested again in Stephenson County for what appears to be Unlawful Possession of Weapon by a Felon, Possession of a Firearm Under 21 Years Old.
On March 24, 2015 Farrille enters the Vandalia Correctional Center to serve 3 years for case 14CF307 and 4 years for case 14CF103, as shown below.
On September 16, 2016, just eighteen months later, he’s released.
We don’t know what you see when you read this but what we see, are warning signs all over the place that this guy is trouble.
Repeated offenses of the same harmful nature and here now again, in 2016 after serving 18 months is the same person doing the same thing in our city.
Where does the system fail?
How does a person like Farrille go unnoticed like this. People know him, he must have friends or family here, so how?
On his left forearm he has a tattoo that reads “RIP Nicole”. He must care about some life. Who’s this Nicole? Who are his friends and family? Who sold him (or gave him) all these guns?
We’d like to know what you think. How do you reach a guy like Farrille? How to you prevent a guy like him from walking the streets unnoticed?
Where does the system fail? Chime In.
