Jason Jakob, 39, was arrested and held without bail Wednesday after an incident on Tuesday at the man’s home in the 900 block of North Harvard Avenue. Several residents reported seeing Jason Jakob carrying rifle boxes or cases near the front of his home Tuesday afternoon. The neighbors found that suspicious, since the man was known to be in a standoff with police just over one year ago when he fired at least 40 shots inside his home. He was arrested and freed about one week later, but conditions of his release included that he not possess firearms. In mid-November 2009, a neighbor reported that Jason Jakob again had weapons at his home — violating his order of bail conditions. He was re-arrested and in December was held on $750,000 bond. He had been in jail until February 19, 2010, when Cook County Circuit Court Judge Kay Hanlon granted the defense attorney’s motion to reduce bond after psychiatric reports indicated Jason Jakob did not pose a danger to himself or others. Since that release police were at the house a few times for loud music complaints late at night in the week leading up to Tuesday’s report that he was carrying rifle boxes into the house.

When Arlington Heights police responded about 4:00 p.m. last Tuesday, they attempted to get Jason Jakob to come out of his house and explain what was going on at his house. Jakob eventually came outside at the front yard after speaking with police by telephone and after waving to police officers who were staged in the neighborhood. When police searched the boxes, they found they were empty, and no charges were filed on Tuesday. A subsequent search by police, uncovered one box containing rounds of rifle ammunition. No weapons were found at the home.

Police arrested Jason Jakob just after 6:20 p.m. Wednesday on Oakton Street near Walnut Avenue after he was spotted by police leaving his house. He was a passenger in a silver Hyundai driven by a female driver who was pulled over in a traffic stop. Jakob was charged with possessing firearm ammunition without a valid Firearm Owners Identification (FOID) card.
