Convicted felon out on bond arrested after police find heroin, gun in Waukegan

Quinten A. Wooding, 33, of Waukegan.

A convicted felon, who was out on bond, was arrested after police found him in possession of cocaine, heroin and a gun at his Waukegan residence.

Quinten A. Wooding, 33, of the 3000 block of Arthur Court in Waukegan, was charged with armed habitual criminal, unlawful possession of heroin with intent to delivery, unlawful possession of cocaine with intent to deliver, two counts of unlawful possession of a controlled substance and unlawful use of a weapon by a felon.

A two-month narcotics investigation by the Lake County Sheriff’s Special Investigations Group came to an end on Monday when Wooding was arrested, Lake County Sheriff Spokesman Sgt. Christopher Covelli said.

Wooding was out of jail on bond after being charged in May with unlawful possession of a controlled substance with intent to deliver in Zion.

During the investigation, members of the Special Investigations Group obtained a search warrant for Wooding’s residence.

Wooding was found to be in possession of a semi-automatic pistol, over 15 grams of heroin packaged for delivery and over a gram of cocaine packaged for delivery, Covelli said.

“The diligence and hard work of our Special Investigations Group resulted in the arrest of a convicted felon, who was out on bond. Drugs and violence do not have place in Lake County and our Special Investigations Group, along with all our staff, are working hard to keep our community safe,” Lake County Sheriff John Idleburg said.

Wooding remains held in the Lake County Jail on a $500,000 bond and is scheduled to appear in court on Friday.
