Sunday, March 5, 2017Cook County Sheriff's Police recovered two loaded firearms and arrested two people after a traffic stop in the Garfield Park neighborhood, Sheriff Thomas J. Dart announced today.

At approximately 11:30 p.m. on March 4, a Sheriff's Police patrol conducting street crime suppression in Garfield Park, pulled over a black Chevy TrailBlazer with an expired registration on Jackson Boulevard near Central Park Avenue. Sheriff’s Police officers were joined by Chicago Police officers. After approaching the vehicle, a Sheriff’s Police officer noticed the handle of a handgun protruding from the driver's right coat pocket as he reached for his wallet. An initial pat down by a Sheriff’s Police officer and a CPD officer led to the recovery of a loaded .40 caliber handgun.

After the two other passengers were asked to exit the vehicle and secured, the officers conducted a search of the vehicle and found an additional loaded .25 caliber handgun in a pouch behind the front seat.
