A man has been arrested and charged after he allegedly threatened to kill two Woodstock police officers, used a stolen credit card, and stole at least two shotguns.
The Woodstock Police Department began an investigation after at least two vehicles were burglarized on October 20.
Police said that during the investigation, it was reported that several firearms, including three shotguns and one pistol, along with numerous other items had been taken from one of the vehicles that had been parked overnight in the Applewood subdivision.
Authorities arrested and charged Treyveon Q. Ashley, 21, of Woodstock, with possession of a stolen firearm, threatening a public official, facilitating identity theft, criminal damage to government property, theft, burglary, criminal trespassing to a vehicle and possession of ammunition without a firearm owner’s identification card (FOID).
A search warrant was obtained for Ashley’s residence where police found two of the stolen shotguns.
According to the Northwest Herald, the charge of threatening a public official allegedly stems from Ashley threatening to kill two Woodstock police officers. The Northwest Herald also reported that police found Ashley after he allegedly used a stolen American Express credit card to rent the “Lego Star Wars: The Force Awakens” PlayStation 4 video game from a RedBox station.
Ashley was transported to the McHenry County Jail. He is currently being held on a $6,000 bond. Ashley is next due in court on November 14 at 9:00 a.m..
Authorities said that this incident is connected to the recent shooting in Woodstock in which Maurice C. Timberlake was charged with similar crimes. During that investigation, officials said that both the stolen pistol and the third shotgun were recovered.
