Officers arrested a Waukegan man after finding him with cannabis while driving a stolen vehicle with a revoked license in a neighborhood in Lake Forest, police records show.
The Lake Forest Police Department responded around 12:02 a.m. Tuesday to Academy Road north of Route 60 after receiving an alert regarding a stolen vehicle.
A FLOCK license plate recognition camera detected a stolen Jeep traveling into the Academy Woods subdivision from Route 60, according to a police report.
Police quickly located the 2008 Jeep Cherokee as it was leaving Lake Forest Academy property.
They conducted a traffic stop on the vehicle, which was driven by William Servin, 26, of Waukegan.
Servin, who was the sole occupant of the Jeep, was detained after officers identified him.
Officers determined that the Jeep he was driving was confirmed stolen from Round Lake Park on March 4, the report said.
Servin’s driver’s license was revoked and he also had an outstanding Lake County warrant for failure to appear on driving under the influence charges.
Officers located a lunch bag containing 40.2 grams of raw cannabis, unused plastic baggies and two weight scales “commonly used for weighing and packaging cannabis,” the report said.
Prosecutors said Servin admitted the cannabis was his.
Officers also found open Modelo beer cans, an opened Hennessy glass bottle and a knife.
Servin was charged with possession of cannabis with intent to deliver, possession of cannabis, illegal transportation of alcohol and driving while license revoked.
Servin was not charged with possession of a stolen vehicle because the owner of the Jeep, who was identified as Servin’s girlfriend, recanted her story about the vehicle being stolen, the report said.
The woman would not clarify why she reported the Jeep stolen on March 4, the report added.
Servin was transported to the Lake Forest Police Department where he was processed and held.
He was later transported to the Lake County Jail and attended a bond hearing.
Servin has several previous felony convictions, including one for a shooting.
Lake County Judge Theodore Potkonjak ordered Servin held on a $200,000 bond.
Servin remains held in the jail and would need to post $20,000 cash in order to be released.
A bond review hearing is scheduled for Wednesday.
