For Immediate Release
March 10, 2013
The River Forest Police Department has announced the arrest of an Oak Park man on weapons charges after a traffic stop early Saturday morning. An officer on routine patrol observed a bronze 1999 Buick Park Avenue commit a traffic violation, subsequently the officer conducted a traffic stop on the 7900 block of Central.
A computer check revealed the driver, Jerrmon S. Davis 18-years old of 222 N. Grove in Oak Park, was driving on a Suspended Driver’s License. Further investigation revealed a loaded silver colored Lorcin .380 caliber semi-automatic handgun under the driver’s floor board mat. The weapon had six (6) live .380 caliber rounds of ammunition and was stored in a location which was easily assessable to Davis. The subject was taken into custody and transported to the station.
The Cook County State’s Attorney’s Felony Review Unit was contacted and approved three (3) counts of Unlawful Use of Weapon which included failing to possess a valid FOID card, carrying a concealed and loaded weapon in a vehicle, and possessing a concealed and loaded weapon in a vehicle while under the age of 21.
Davis was also charged with Driving on a Suspended License and Failure to Signal when Required. Davis was being held pending his transfer for a Bond Hearing.
“This incident is another example of how dangerous a police officer’s job is today. The arrestee was unlawfully in possession of an illegal gun which he did not have a right to possess. I believe the officers may have saved a life or prevented a serious crime from being committed. Another illegal gun off the streets only helps reduce gun violence and increases the public’s general safety.”
Deputy Chief James O’Shea
The public is reminded that a signed complaint is not evidence of guilt and that all defendants in a criminal case are presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty in a court of law.
