Arlington Heights Police apparently recovered weapons during a traffic stop near the Holiday Inn Express, 2111 South Arlington Heights Road in Arlington Heights. A witness told CARDINAL NEWS that approximately 10 to 15 police vehicles responded to the Holiday Inn Express area. The witness told CARDINAL NEWS that police appeared to be inspecting guns and gun holsters and arrested two adult men.
The driver of a gray Honda Civic pulled into the Holiday Inn Express from Arlington Heights Road. The witness observed the police talking to two adult men, who did not seem to resist the police. A K-9 unit was also dispatched to the scene.
It is initially unclear why police stopped the Honda Civic and how they determined there were weapons in the passenger vehicle. The Honda Civic had California license plates that could have expired in June 2021. The circumstances of the traffic stop apparently allowed police to search the vehicle. The trunk was opened and police were searching the contents of the trunk at approximately 9:30 p.m. A Smart & Final bag was observed in the trunk by passers-by. Smart & Final is a Commerce, California-based warehouse-style grocery and supply store chain with stores primarily in California, but also in Arizona and Nevada.
The two male occupants of the vehicle were taken into custody by police heading north on Arlington Heights Road – reportedly to the Arlington Heights Police Department Headquarters Detention Center.
