Former Illinois cop Scott Webb was apprehended in Branson (mug shot TCSO)
-
A police officer in Branson busted a former Woodridge, Illinois cop who is accused of stealing more than $30,000 from a police charity.

Initial published reports were that Scott Webb was apprehended during a routine traffic stop on Tuesday (10-18-11,) however, Chief Kent Crutcher says "a local acquaintance of Webb's" called and tipped authorities to his whereabouts.  Webb was taken into custody without incident at a condo after Officer Lance Gott ran Webb's license and confirmed he had an active warrant for his arrest for stealing.

-
When authorities arrested him in Branson, he was living in an apartment with two other people and going by the name Jeff Waits. He had $4,500 in cash, three money orders for $500 each, and a loaded 9 mm pistol, according to Illinois State Assistand Attorney Helen Kapas.

“Webb had made statements that he would shoot himself if the police came for him,” Kapas said.
-
Webb, a 10-year-veteran of the Woodridge department, fled the Chicago area shortly before he was indicted in late May for allegedly stealing more than $30,000 that was raised during two events that support families of fallen officers.
-
The missing money was intended for the Illinois chapter of Concerns of Police Survivors, a nonprofit that helps send families of fallen officers on trips to Washington, D.C., where their loved ones are honored.
