3 Arrested, 1 Charged After Guns and Pressure Cooker (“Not Weaponized”) Found in Car Leaving O’Hare

Santos Zamora, aggravated unlawful use of a weapon suspect

Chicago police pulled over a male driver for speeding about 15-20 mph over the speed limit just after 8:00 a.m. Saturday, October 7, 2017 in the block of 5800 Cumberland Avenue, near the Kennedy Expressway.

During the traffic stop, the police initially found a handgun inside the vehicle, then a more extensive search revealed an AR-15 rifle and a pressure cooker in the vehicle’s trunk. Police determined the pressure cooker was not prepared as a weapon after the CPD Organized Crime Bureau and Joint Terrorism Task Force and FBI investigated.

Three occupants of the vehicle were taken into custody, but only the driver Santos Zamora, 32, of Sheboygan, Wisconsin was taken into custody. Zamora told police he was dropping off a friend at the airport.

Santos Zamora was charged with a felony count of aggravated unlawful use of a weapon for carrying a loaded gun in the vehicle. Zamora was also issued traffic citations for speeding 15-20 mph above the speed limit and operating a motor vehicle without insurance. The other occupants of the vehicle were released without charges.
