Stop Team nabs felon with firearm
GARY — A man arrested by members of the Regional Stop Team last week during a traffic stop has been charged with unlawful possession of a firearm by a serious violent felon and traffic violations, police said.
Glen D. Young, 27, of 578 Van Buren St., was being held on $40,000 when he was arrested near 6th Avenue and Madison Street, court records show.
Stop members Cpl. Damon Bradshaw and Patrolmen Kevin Campbell saw a white car with a broken side view mirror and signalled for the driver to stop.
Young did not have a valid driver’s license, and the officers started conducting an inventory of the car to tow it.
During the search, they found a loaded Marlin .22-caliber rifle.
“Officers later discovered that Young had multiple felony convictions,” the probable cause affidavit states.
A passenger in the car told ATF Special Agent Dan Mitten that Young had been released from prison in Illinois in August, 2012, and that neither the car, the rifle nor the ammunition was hers.
Young’s prior record includes convictions for aggravated battery and armed robbery in Cook County, Ill., the affidavit states.
