An illegal immigrant is back in custody after being arrested for the tenth time in as many months. Since arriving in Chicago last summer, Carlos Mavarez Viloria has been booked on charges ranging from shoplifting to possession of drug paraphernalia. Viloria was released the previous nine times, however his most recent arrest was his first felony, meaning even if he is freed, he will have to abide by certain conditions.

According to CWBChicago, Viloria was apprehended on May 15 in downtown Chicago's Pritzker Park on shoplifting charges. The TJ Maxx on 11 North State Street had alerted police that they had reason to believe he had stolen $450 worth of merchandise from them on four occassions between April 9 and May 7.

During the arrest, Viloria struggled with officers, pushing one of them to the ground, causing injuries to their hand and arm. In addition to the shoplifting charges, he was hit with reckless conduct, resisting arrest, and felony aggravated battery of a peace officer.

Viloria was subsequently taken to Cook County Jail, where he has remained. The judge overseeing his case, Ankur Srivastava, issued a ruling permitting him to be released so long as he agrees to electronic monitoring, however as of Monday he was still in custody.

Viloria was first arrested on July 12 for theft of 10 baseball caps, watches, and food from a local Walmart. The total value of the goods was $193. He failed to appear in court, and a warrant was issued for his arrest. The next day, officers apprehended him near a Macy's from which he was accused of having attempted to steal $158 worth of clothing. 

In August, he was arrested for allegedly possessing a crack pipe, then three months later, he was taken into custody again for shoplifting and narcotics possession. Arrests five to eight involved more shoplifting, allegedly threatening to shoot a convenience store employee, and entering a store after being prohibited from doing so. His ninth arrest was for selling clothes without a permit.

Eight of the aforementioned nine cases were dropped, with Viloria only serving seven days for the first Walmart incident. Whether he gets any time for the tenth set of charges remains to be seen.
