Traffic Stop Investigation Uncovers 2 Suspects Wanted for Murder and Parole Violation

DES PLAINES, IL - Illinois State Police officials announced arrests from a routine traffic stop. On October 15, 2011, at 1:05 a.m., an Illinois State Police Master Sergeant was on routine patrol when he observed a 2004 blue Buick traveling eastbound in the area of Interstate 290 at Laramie.

The Master Sergeant observed an Improper Display of Registration on the vehicle and proceeded to initiate a traffic stop. Upon further investigation, the officer learned that the driver, Todd A. Sutton, 42, of Chicago, was driving with a suspended license. Two additional passengers inside the vehicle were also questioned and were identified as Michael A Lane, 29, of Chicago, and Dwayne C Moore, 24, of Chicago.  

It was also learned that both passengers, Lane and Moore, were wanted on warrant(s) for Murder and Parole violation. Lane is wanted for Murder and Moore is wanted for Parole Violation.

“Our streets and highways are safer today with the arrest of these offenders -- two offenders wanted for murder and parole violation,” said ISP Director Hiram Grau. “This officer’s bravery, training, and experience guided him through a thorough investigation where he was able to uncover the identities of two dangerous offenders,” Grau added.

 Illinois State Police arrested Sutton, Lane, and Moore. Lane and Moore remain in custody in Cook County.
