A stop for a traffic violation Tuesday in Harvey, Illinois, led to the recovery of a loaded handgun and the arrest of a 20 year old Sauk Village man. The Cook County Sheriff's Office says they discovered the loaded handgun under the front passenger seat of the vehicle while taking inventory, after officers learned the car's driver had a revoked driver's license. The Sheriff's Office says the gun belonged to one of the three passengers in the vehicle, who did not have a Firearm Owner's Identification, or FOID, card. Sheriff Tom Dart says in the last three months the department's Gun Suppression Team, formed to remove guns from those who possess them illegally and confiscate revoked FOID cards from those who are no longer allowed to have them, have recovered 98 guns, 113 revoked FOID cards, and have resolved 74 FOID cases. The Sheriff says in Cook County alone, nearly four-thousand revoked FOID card holders have not returned their FOID cards to Illinois State Police.
