An Oak Lawn resident, Alla Natour, was arrested for one felony and cited for various traffic offenses after the Oak Lawn Police stopped his vehicle recently.
Natour was driving on Cicero Avenue and turned on 95th Street in a red Cadillac when an alert police officer reported that he saw him using his cell phone while driving. The report claims that Natour attempted to turn right onto Kenneth Avenue from the center lane of 95th Street. At that point, the officer activated his lights and attempted to pull the driver over.
The police report claims that Natour almost hit a parked car on Kenneth while turning from 95th Street. When he was asked for his license, he allegedly told the officer he didn’t have his license with him.
The officer reported that there were pills and cash in the car and visible. The officer claimed that there were multiple pills and pill bottles in the car. While the officer was in the squad car, the officer noticed that Natour allegedly was making movements in the front seat. He had also claimed that Natour was sweating even though it was only eleven degrees outside.
The officer claims that Natour’s answers seemed to be erratic so he asked him to step out of the car. Natour allegedly objected to the idea of having to get out of the car asking “why” he had to exit the car. As Natour walked with the officer toward the back of the car, he allegedly was reaching into his pockets which caused the officer to search him to make sure he didn’t have any weapons.
During the search the officer claimed that he recovered a clear plastic bag with 7 Xanax pills. The officer asked Natour what the pills were and Natour allegedly stated, “I was just on my way to the doctor’s office to get a prescription for those.”
Natour was charged with felony possession of a controlled substance. He was also issued tickets for talking on a cell phone while driving, illegal lane usage and failing to have his driver’s license. The officer recovered and inventoried 4 cell phones and $2,249.16 in cash from the car.
Natour, a 33 year old white male was on federal probation and the police department notified the United State’s Federal Probation Office in Chicago. A check of federal records indicate that there was a man named Alla Natour in federal custody who was released January 30, 2015. We cannot confirm that the Natour arrested in Oak Lawn is the same person.
