Justice J. Morgan | Mundelein police

An 18-year-old man participating in a police youth training program in north suburban Mundelein stole a Taser from the department, police said.

Justice J. Morgan stole the Taser after a Mundelein Police Explorer training session at the department, according to Mundelein police.

Waukegan police found the Taser in Morgan’s vehicle during a traffic stop Saturday and notified Mundelein police.

Morgan, who lives in Waukegan, was charged with one felony count of unlawful possession of a weapon by Waukegan police, and one felony count of theft by Mundelein police.

His bond was set at $5,000, which he posted and was released, according to the Lake County sheriff’s office. He is next scheduled to appear in court April 21.
