***Press Release*** On May 18th at approximately 0220 hours, a Midlothian Police Officer was on routine patrol in the area of 144th St & Cicero Avenue when he saw a suspicious vehicle with a passenger door open. Due to the recent vehicle burglaries the Officer went to investigate the situation. The vehicle began to move and the Officer positioned his vehicle behind the suspicious vehicle, where he discovered vehicle registration violations. The Officer attempted to conduct a traffic stop on the vehicle in the area of 143rd St. & Kenton Ave. The vehicle initially stopped but upon the Officer exiting his vehicle, the suspect vehicle fled the area at a high rate of speed. The vehicle fled eastbound on 143rd St. and Northbound on Pulaski Road with speeds in excess of 80 mph. The vehicle then traveled eastbound on Midlothian Turnpike into the Village of Robbins. Because of the offending vehicles high rate of speed the Officer had lost sight of the vehicle. The Officer believed the vehicle had turned onto a residential street so he began searching the residential streets in the area. The Officer arrived in the area of 135th St & Ridgeway Avenue and found the offending vehicle had been involved in a motor vehicle crash with another vehicle. The Officer radioed for medical assistance for the parties involved. The suspect, Courtney Martin (35 year old male from Robbins, IL) was found to also be in possession of a large amount of cocaine. Courtney was transported to the hospital for injuries. The sole occupant of the other vehicle also went to the hospital with reported non-life threatening injuries. The investigation is ongoing and Courtney will be facing felony charges upon release from the hospital. Respectfully, Chief Delaney
