Two men linked to several auto part thefts appeared in bond court Saturday after their Thursday arrests in the Southwest Side Garfield Ridge neighborhood.

Erick S. Gholson, 31; and Marshawn Green, 20, were arrested after a foot chase that began about 2:45 a.m. in the 4800 block of South LaCrosse Avenue, police said. Chicago police spelled Gholson's name "Erik," while the Cook County Sheriff's office spelled it "Erick."

Officers patrolling the area saw a Jeep Liberty double-parked in the roadway, police said. As they approached the SUV, they saw Green jump out from underneath a parked vehicle and get into the Jeep, which was driven by Gholson.

They drove a short distance, then got out of the vehicle and ran, police said.

After police caught up and arrested the men, they found several catalytic converters in the SUV, police said. Authorities were able to link them to several thefts, based on the stolen items.

Gholson, of the 7700 block of South Constance Avenue, was charged with felony burglary, felony aggravated fleeing and four misdemeanor traffic violations, including failure to stop at a stop sign, negligent driving, driving on a suspended license and not having insurance, police said.

Green, of the 11800 block of South Emerald Avenue, was charged with one count of felony burglary, police said.

Judge Donald Panarese ordered Gholson held on a $20,000 bond ordered him to remain on electronic monitoring if he bails out, according to the Cook County State's Attorney's office.

Green was released on a $10,000 recognizance bond. Both will next appear in court Friday, the state's attorney's office said.
