Passenger in Speeding Vehicle in Wadsworth, Illegal Guns Found

(Waukegan, IL)  A man from Louisiana will be spending some extra time in Lake County, after being arrested on weapons charges. The Lake County Sheriff’s office says Daquaylon Griffin was a passenger in a vehicle pulled over for going 80 miles an hour in a 55 zone back on April 19th in Wadsworth. While speaking to the 21-year-old the deputy noticed a firearm in plain view…a second gun was recovered after a search of the vehicle. Authorities say Griffin had no FOID card for either pistol, leading to his arrest on two counts of aggravated  unlawful possession of a firearm. The Lafayette, Louisiana man was originally being held on a 250-thousand-dollar bond…he was able to post that a couple days after his arrest. Future court dates have not been scheduled.
