A man was handed a felony gun charge after police found a loaded gun in the glove compartment of his minivan in west suburban Aurora.
Audel Villafuerte-Mora, 21, of Aurora, was charged with aggravated unlawful use of a weapon, according to Aurora Police.
Villafuerte-Mora almost caused a crash about 1:10 a.m. when he failed to stop at the intersection of Benton and Clark Streets, police said. He then drove through a stop sign at Benton and LaSalle, where an officer pulled him over.
The officer searched his minivan after smelling marijuana coming from it, and found a loaded .38 caliber handgun in the glove compartment, police said. Villafuerte-Mora was determined to own the gun, and he was arrested.
Three other women in the minivan were released without charges, police said.
