Axel Rosales, 22, of Waukegan.

A man arrested after police found three guns, including an AK pistol, along with two pounds of marijuana in his car in Mundelein has been sentenced to six months of periodic imprisonment.

Lake County Assistant State’s Attorney Lillian Lewis said during an initial court hearing in November that officers with the Mundelein Police Department conducted a traffic stop on November 12.

The officers stopped Axel Rosales, 22, after noticing his vehicle commit a traffic violation.

Officers had to ask the driver to roll down the windows because they were severely tinted, Lewis said.

Officers observed in plain view a bag with the butt of a magazine sticking out of it. Rosales told police there was a gun in the bag.

Lewis said officers noted a strong smell of marijuana coming from the car.

Rosales, who is a Waukegan resident, told officers he had three guns, including an AK pistol, in the car.

He also said there was possibly a half-pound of marijuana inside the car, Lewis said.

Officers placed Rosales and his passenger, a 20-year-old Lindenhurst woman, into custody.

Officers searched the car and recovered 10 pistol and rifle magazines, a loaded AK pistol, two loaded pistols with extended magazines and a tote bag with marijuana, Lewis said.

The marijuana weighed over two pounds. There were also scattered live rounds of ammunition inside the car.

The female passenger admitted to police that Rosales “sells weed and carries guns,” Lewis said. Rosales also admitted to carrying guns and selling marijuana.

Rosales did not have a concealed carry license, Lewis said. The passenger did not have a Firearm Owners Identification card or concealed carry license.

Rosales was charged with armed violence, manufacturing or delivering cannabis over 500 grams, possession of cannabis over 500 grams and aggravated unlawful use of a weapon.

The female passenger was charged with two counts of aggravated unlawful use of a weapon but prosecutors later dismissed her charges.

Lake County Judge Christopher Kennedy set bond for Rosales at $250,000, which he posted.

Court records show Rosales entered into a negotiated plea deal with the Lake County State’s Attorney’s Office last Thursday.

He pleaded guilty to one count of aggravated unlawful use of a weapon in exchange for his other charges being dismissed.

Lake County Judge Daniel Shanes approved the plea deal and sentenced Rosales to 24 months of probation and six months of periodic imprisonment.

Rosales was also ordered to not possess or consume illegal drugs and alcohol and not possess any dangerous weapons.

Rosales will also have to perform 100 hours of public service and undergo drug and alcohol testing.
