Share this post

Cook County Sheriff Thomas Dart says investigators working in Dolton found a gun they later learned was stolen in 2010 out of Gary. Authorities say a 32-year-old Chicago man scheduled to appear at the Markham Courthouse today has been charged with armed violence, aggravated unlawful use of a weapon, child endangerment and other narcotics related charges. Dart says his department's Gun Suppression Team observed two vehicles in the street parked alongside each other and police allege the drivers conducted what appeared to be a narcotics transaction. Investigators conducted a traffic stop on one of the vehicles; the other sped away. Police say Armond Nelson of Chicago was scheduled to appear in bond court this morning at the Markham Courthouse. Nelson allegedly told investigators he purchased the gun from someone on the streets in Indiana.  Police say the suspect's five-year-old daughter was in the back seat, and was later turned over to family members.
