Gun Recovered in Traffic Stop

On June 25, at 7:28 p.m. in the 2000 block of Main Street, an Evanston police officer stopped a white Jeep for an expired registration, said Commander Ryan Glew of the Evanston Police Department.

When police officers approached the vehicle, they detected an odor of cannabis coming from inside the vehicle, said Commander Glew. Officers had the driver, a 21 year old Evanston resident, exit the vehicle and interviewed him. During the interview, the driver admitted to having a handgun in his waistband, said the Commander. The driver  was arrested and officers recovered a loaded Taurus 9 mm handgun. 

Officers searched the vehicle and recovered 35.5 grams of cannabis, a burnt cannabis cigar weighing .5 grams, and three 1000 mg tubes of THC oil, said the Commander. The driver was charged with one felony count of unlawful use of a weapon, one felony count of possession of cannabis with intent to deliver, and other charges, said the Commander.
