Waukegan man arrested on drug, gun charges

By Christopher Placek

Waukegan police said Friday they recovered drugs and a weapon after a search of a man's house spurred by complaints from area residents.

Police charged Marcus Brewton, 31, of the 2100 block of Western Avenue, with unlawful possession of cannabis, unlawful possession of cannabis with intent to deliver, and unlawful use of a weapon.

Authorities said they located 63 grams of cannabis, a .380 semiautomatic handgun, drug paraphernalia, and $140 at Brewton's residence.

Waukegan Police Chief Dan Greathouse said in a statement authorities were alerted to the house by concerned residents who noticed unusual amounts of foot traffic there.

Brewton was being held at the Lake County jail on a $25,000 bond.
