Schaumburg police responded about 4:40 p.m. Sunday, April 17, 2022 to a report of a domestic disturbance in the block of 100 Waterbury Circle. A convicted felon out on parole was arrested after he remained barricaded in a townhouse after the domestic disturbance brought the police to the address. Cook County prosecutors said Tuesday, April 19, 2022 that Fanniel was angry when a woman friend returned home late at the residence, and the disturbance developed.

Terrel Fanniel, age 32, refused to cooperate with Schaumburg police who responded to the scene, and remained barricaded inside the townhouse until just before 8:30 p.m. when he was arrested.

Schaumburg police obtained a search warrant for the townhouse, and when they entered the home they found 1200 grams of marijuana from locations in the attic, kitchen and a bedroom. Police also recovered $2,000 cash from a freezer.

According to Cook County Sheriff’s jail records, Terrel Fanniel is held in Cook County Jail DIV5-2J-10-1 at 26th Street and California Avenue in Chicago without bond, and is scheduled for his next court date on Friday, May 13, 2022 at Cook County Circuit Court Rolling Meadows.

Fanniel was previously convicted of Manufacture and Delivery of Cannabis in Cook County going back to 2013. He was out on parole September 22, 2021 for an Aggravated DUI conviction in Cook County.

In Will County, Joliet police and the Joliet Metropolitan Area Narcotics Squad in November 2019 raided Fanniel’s previous residence in the block of 2100 Willow Lake Drive in Plainfield following the October 2019 homicide of cocaine dealer Dearis Evans on Cora Street near Granite Street in Joliet. Fanniel was not charged with homicide connected to the death of Dearis Evans, but he has an Unlawful Use of Weapon case and a marijuana related case pending in Will County.

Schaumburg police posted on Twitter that they were on the scene of a barricaded subject in the 100 block of Waterbury, and that Schaumburg Road was blocked between Roselle Road and Summit Road. The police department deleted the initial tweet, but then provided an update at 8:34 p.m. that the person was in custody and that the incident was resolved. Although Schaumburg Road was blocked as a precaution for the duration of the standoff, Schaumburg police stated there was no risk to the public, and that police would be opening the roadway shortly.

Neighbors were asked to shelter in place in their homes during the standoff, but an alternative shelter was provided nearby for residents who felt safer at another location.

Cook County Sheriff’s jail records provided the booking date record for Terrell Fanniel on April 19, 2022.
