FBI offers $5,000 for tips on fugitive

The FBI has joined a nationwide manhunt for a Matteson man who escaped from Cook County Jail on Monday.

Robert Grant, special agent-in-charge of the FBI’s Chicago office, announced Friday that a reward of up to $5,000 is being offered for information on 37-year-old Randy Rencher.

Rencher, who has an extensive criminal record dating to 1986, also was charged Friday with robbing a First American Bank Branch of $2,500 in downtown Chicago the afternoon he escaped. Rencher is suspected in up to three other ban robberies in the Loop dating to July 2004.

Authorities say Rencher broke into a guard’s locker while delivering meals to inmates, donned a correctional officer’s uniform and walked out a main gate in the early afternoon Monday. It was the first Cook County Jail escape in 10 years.

His last known addresses are in the 200 block of Timber Lane in Matteson and the 6100 block of South Whipple Street in Chicago’s Marquette Park neighborhood.

He’s described as 6-foot-3, 180 pounds with brown eyes and thinning brown hair. Court records show he has several aliases, including the name Randall Brown. The word “slick” is tattooed on his lower left or right arm, a heart and pitchfork on his upper left arm and the word “outlaw” across his back.

His bail jumped to $600,000 days before his escape when he was charged with home invasion.

In addition to the FBI, Rencher is sought by the Cook County sheriff’s police, Chicago police, Illinois state police and the U.S. Marshals.

Anyone with information on Rencher should call the Chicago FBI at (312) 431-1333 or their local police department.
