CHICAGO BEARS RADIO -- WBBM Newsradio 780 "Traffic on the 8's"

Buffalo Grove police were on a traffic stop for a “Click it or Ticket” safety check near the Cash for Gold store about 11:10 p.m. Thursday when one of the vehicle occupants bailed and ran eastbound near the radio tower at Boeger and Arlington Heights Road. Police stopped a Cadillac SUV at the northwest corner of Arlington Heights Road and Dundee Road after one of the occupants fled carrying a camouflage rifle case. Police had waved the vehicle to stop for a safety check, but the vehicle’s driver dumped a passenger near Arlington Heights Road and Boeger — about a block south of the safety check. A Buffalo Grove police motorcycle officer followed the car to Boeger Road and ordered the passenger to stop, but the order was ignored. Buffalo Grove police and Arlington Heights police converged on the area within minutes and began a search.

Soon afterward, witnesses reported seeing a bald male/white with a red shirt and camouflage pants hiding in the brush near the radio tower at Boeger Road. The Arlington Heights Police K-9 unit immediately responded to assist Buffalo Grove police in the search, which included a wooded area near the radio tower. The suspect was also sited on Country Lane in the area, and near the intersection of Thornton and Old Arlington Heights Road. Police set up a perimeter that included the Mill Creek and Timber Woods residential neighborhoods. The search with the K-9 started about 200 feet south of the radio tower and headed north to include a KinderCare building and other buildings near the radio tower.

Police responded to snapping twigs and barking dogs in the area that may have been caused by the suspect, but the search turned up no results, and was terminated at about 1:00 a.m. Friday.

Police detained the driver and one other person from the Cadillac SUV for questioning. Both were transported to Buffalo Grove police headquarters.

Police charged the driver Ronald Edward Jensen Jr., 22, of 524 Bernard Drive, with unlawful use of a weapon. Jensen also received several traffic tickets as a result of the stop, and is scheduled to appear July 14 at Cook County Circuit Court in Rolling Meadows. Police discovered brass knuckles and .38-caliber ammunition in the car. Both men were uncooperative revealing any information regarding the fleeing man with the rifle case.
