Two persons were detained after two pounds of marijuana and three firearms, including an AK-47, were discovered in a car during a Mundelein traffic stop. Lillian Lewis, an assistant state’s attorney for Lake County, reported that on Saturday, Mundelein Police Department officers stopped a vehicle. After observing Axel Rosales’ 21-year-old car break the law, the authorities stopped him. The windows were heavily tinted, so the officers had to persuade the driver to roll them down, according to Lewis.
Officers saw a bag with a magazine’s butt protruding from it in plain sight. Rosales informed the police that the bag contained a pistol. Lewis claimed that when authorities approached the automobile, a powerful stench could be detected. Rosales, a Waukegan resident, admitted to police that the vehicle contained three firearms, including an AK-47. Additionally, he claimed that the automobile might have contained half a pound of marijuana.

Rosales and his passenger, 20-year-old Lindenhurst resident Alexis L. Draper, were taken into jail by the police. According to Lewis, when police searched the car, they found 10 handgun and rifle magazines, an AK-47 loaded, two loaded pistols with extended magazines, and a tote bag with marijuana. Moreover, two pounds of marijuana were found.
Inside the car, there were also a few live rounds of ammo spread about. Rosales “sells drugs and carries firearms,” according to Draper’s admission to the police, Lewis added. Rosales acknowledged having a gun and trafficking drugs as well.
Rosales is not authorized to carry a concealed weapon, according to Lewis. Draper lacks a concealed carry permit and a Firearm Owners Identification card. Rosales was charged with aggravated criminal use of a firearm, manufacturing or supplying cannabis weighing more than 500 grams, possessing cannabis weighing more than 500 grams, and acts of armed violence. Two counts of aggravated unlawful use of a weapon were brought against Draper.
Rosales’ bond was set at $250,000 by Lake County Judge Christopher Kennedy, and Draper’s was set at $100,000. On November 29, Draper is expected to show up in court for a status of the preliminary hearing. Rosales is due to show up in court on December 6 for a preliminary hearing.
