Evanston Woman Charged with Unlawful Use of Gun

On May 28, at 8:13 p.m. Evanston Police attempted to stop a black Dodge for having illegally tinted windows in the 100 block of Chicago Avenue. The vehicle did not stop and fled. A short time later the offending vehicle was located and stopped in the 800 block of Main Street, said Commander Ryan Glew of the Evanston Police Department.

Officers made contact with the driver, a 24-year old woman who is a resident of Evanston and who was the only person in the car. Officers investigated the initial traffic offense and the odor of cannabis coming from the interior of the vehicle, said the Commander. The investigation led to the recovery of a Springfield XD9 9 mm handgun. Approximately six grams of suspect cannabis was also recovered, he said.

The woman was arrested and transported to the police station for further investigation. The woman denied possession of the handgun. She did not have a FOID card or a Concealed Carry License. The suspect cannabis field tested positive, said the Commander. 

The woman was issued traffic citations and a citation for possession of cannabis. She was charged with aggravated unlawful use of a weapon and related charges, said the Commander. He added that the woman was not charged for the initial fleeing police, since she could not be identified as the driver when it occurred, said the Commander.
