A warrant for Vaughn’s arrest had been issued on August 11, Croon said, and Sauk Village police had contacted the FBI for assistance to locate and arrest him.
He was turned over to police in Sauk Village, where he was wanted on a warrant for unlawful use of a weapon by a felon, according to the FBI and Sauk Village Police Chief Robert Kowalski.
