Chicago's Most Wanted: Jimmie Sessom

Posted: Updated:
CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) -

The FBI and Chicago Police targeted a group of individuals now charged with running a heroin distribution operation on Chicago's Near West Side. In a recent roundup they were able to arrest most of the people they were after. But not all of them.

The person FBI agents are trying to find and arrest is 28-year-old Jimmie Sessom, a Chicago man whose last known address was 1410 South Karlov on the city's west side. He was one of eight people charged in early May as part of Operation Heroin Hotline, a case that led to the arrests of most of the defendants.

Sessom and the other individuals are accused of conspiring to sell, and actually selling heroin, usually in capsule form, to customers who would come to the city's near west side to purchase the drugs.

The investigation began back in 2009 as part of the FBI and Chicago Police Department's Safe Street Gangs Joint Task Force which has been targeting the many gang-run drug dealing operations around the city. It is an example of federal agents partnering with local law enforcement to address narcotics trafficking and other criminal activity. In this case, in addition to working with the Chicago Police Department agents also partnered with the River Forest and Forest Park Police Departments.

Overall so far, as part of Operation Heroin Hotline, members of the task force have seized approximately 750 grams of heroin, as well as $21,000 cash and a vehicle.

Sessom is currently the focus of a nationwide manhunt. Agents say he fled the area when they went to arrest him on May 16th. They believe there's a possibility Sessom could return to the Chicago area because this is where his connections are, and where he may have people he can turn to to help him hide. Agents hope a Fox 32 News viewer may know something about Sessom's whereabouts and will provide information that helps get him into custody.

Here is the FBI's description of Jimmie Sessom:

--Black male

--28 years old

--About 5'8", 190 pounds

--Brown eyes, black hair

--Arm Tattoos, including: "RIP Ceretha," a skull with wings, and "RIP Sam Smooth" plus a cross with the dates "1960-2009"

Jimmie Sessom is considered armed. If you see him you are asked to call police.

    The Hess triangle is a tiny piece of private property in Greenwich Village. Manhattan historian Joyce Gold explained the origins of the property: After World War I, New York City seized a beautiful residence and tore it down so it could extend Seventh Avenue and the west side subway below it. The city left the building's owner only a tiny scrap of property so small it requested he donate the triangle to make way for a sidewalk. The man refused, took the city to court and won.
