Marvelo Wilson, 21, of Racine, Wisconsin.

A 21-year-old man, who is a convicted murderer, was arrested earlier this week when officers found him and a woman with loaded guns during a traffic stop in Waukegan, prosecutors said.

Marvelo Wilson, 21, of the 1100 block of Riley Court in Racine, Wisconsin, was charged with three counts of aggravated unlawful use of a weapon, obstructing identification and unlawful possession of a firearm.

Lake County Assistant State’s Attorney Dino Katris said during a bond hearing that officers with the Waukegan Police Department conducted a traffic stop on a vehicle.

The stop happened on Wednesday and the vehicle had tinted windows and a tinted license plate cover.

Officers spotted the driver reaching behind a passenger seat during the stop.

Officers smelled an odor of cannabis and asked the driver and Wilson to exit the vehicle.

Wilson was the front seat passenger and he gave a fake name and date of birth to the officers, Katris said.

Michelle L. Anthony, 24, of Danville.

A search of the vehicle was conducted and officers found two guns inside under the passenger seat.

Katris said a loaded Glock 30 with an extended magazine was found to belong to Wilson.

Katris said a 9mm ghost gun with a laser sight was found to belong to the driver, Michelle L. Anthony, 24, of Danville.

Wilson does not have a Firearm Owner’s Identification card nor a concealed carry license. Anthony has a revoked Firearm Owner’s Identification card.

Wilson’s public defender asked the court to impose a reasonable cash bond.

Katris argued against the reasonable cash bond, saying that Wilson had a murder charge from 2016 when he was a juvenile. He had been sentenced to a detention center for five years in that case.

Lake County Judge Theodore Potkonjak ordered Wilson held on a $350,000 bond and ordered Anthony held on a $250,000 bond.
