A Zion woman was arrested after she allegedly fled from police and was found with a “ghost gun” and drugs in Waukegan, prosecutors said.
Chasity A. Davis, 29, of Zion, was charged with fleeing attempting to elude a police officer, two counts of aggravated unlawful use of a weapon, possession of 15-200 ecstasy pills and speeding.
Lake County Assistant State’s Attorney Francis DeRosa said an officer caught Davis driving 53 mph in a 35 mph zone on Wednesday.
Davis allegedly pulled into a driveway in the 2900 block of North Lewis Avenue in Waukegan.
She took off running from the car while officers told her to stop, DeRosa said.
Officers located Davis and arrested her. They found her in possession of keys that matched the car she fled from.
Fresh cannabis was found in the car and officers conducted a search, finding a bag that contained a ghost gun, DeRosa said.
The gun had a loaded magazine inserted into it. Officers also found baggies of ecstasy pills.
Davis does not have a Firearm Owners Identification card or concealed carry license, DeRosa said.
Davis had two active warrants for her arrest at the time of the incident, court records show.
Lake County Judge Theodore Potkonjak ordered Davis held on a $200,000 umbrella bond covering all of her active cases.
Davis remains held in the Lake County Jail and would need to post $20,000 cash in order to be released.
A preliminary hearing is scheduled for February 28.
