CAUTION

Eddie C. Hicks is wanted for his alleged involvement in a conspiracy to steal drugs and money from known drug dealers, and subsequently selling the drugs to other drug dealers. Hicks and four other accomplices would allegedly pose as Drug Enforcement Administration task force officers, prepare false search warrants to gain entry to stash houses of known drug dealers, confiscate drugs, money, and other valuables, and then take the drugs to another drug dealer to be sold. The profits were split among the individuals involved in the scheme. Hicks is the only member of the group that remains a fugitive.

Hicks was scheduled for trial on June 9, 2003, to face drug and RICO charges, but he failed to appear. A bench warrant for his arrest was issued the same day by the United States District Court, Northern District of Illinois, Eastern Division.
