An Aurora man, previously charged in Kendall County, was arrested, after Aurora Police say he was found with a gun that illegally had an extended magazine during a traffic stop near the Hometown neighborhood, which is near the Aurora, Montgomery line.
Police say in a statement that 18 year-old Marchelo Nelson of Victoria Park Circle was stopped while leaving the neighborhood, which according to Kane County Court records was for Failure of a Passenger to Wear a Seatbelt. Nelson received the citation.
Court records show charges were filed, last Thursday for two felony counts of Aggravated Unlawful Use of a Weapon and one felony count of Unlawful Use of a Weapon. Nelson was also charged with a misdemeanor charge of Obstructing Identification.
The stop occurred, last Tuesday. During the traffic stop, officers spotted the firearm, which officials said had an extended magazine and they took Nelson into custody.
Nelson was transported to the Kane County Jail, held on $50,000 bond. In Kane County, Nelson's only additional case stems from another Failure of a Passenger to Wear a Seatbelt citation, which he was cited for earlier this year.
As WSPY previously reported, Nelson, then of Boulder Hill, was charged in Kendall County in 2018, arrested on three juvenile warrants in connection with two shots fired incidents that occurred in Boulder Hill in November of that year.
A male juvenile was also arrested for Unlawful Possession of a Firearm. Kendall County Sheriff's officials has said that a firearm, ammunition, and narcotics were recovered in that case.
