NAPERVILLE, IL – Bond has been denied for a teenager after law enforcement allegedly discovered a modified machine gun in Naperville.
Caleb Davis, 18, a resident of Oswego’s 400 block on Treasure Drive, appeared before Judge Michael Reidy, who granted the State’s motion to deny bond. Davis now faces charges for the alleged unlawful possession of a loaded machine gun, a Class X Felony.
According to Naperville Police, on June 29, 2023, around 9:03 p.m., officers reportedly spotted a vehicle parking in a dimly lit area of a parking lot on W. 75th Street. Approaching the vehicle on foot, officers reportedly noticed the protruding butt of a firearm near the feet of a passenger in the front seat. Promptly removing Davis and the passenger from the vehicle, officers conducted a subsequent search.
During the search, officers allegedly discovered a loaded Glock 9mm handgun that had been illegally modified to function as a fully automatic machine gun. The weapon reportedly contained one bullet in the chamber, with an additional thirty-four bullets found between Davis and the center console. Notably, the passenger possessed valid permits, including a Firearm Owners Identification Card and a Concealed Carry License.
State’s Attorney Robert Berlin commended the Naperville Police Department for their vigilance, emphasizing the significance of removing such dangerous firearms from the streets. Assistant State’s Attorneys Rob Willis and Anthony Raimondi were praised for securing strong charges against Davis.
Naperville Chief of Police Jason Arres highlighted the department’s proactive approach to combatting illegal firearms, expressing gratitude for the swift action taken by officers to prevent potential tragedies.
Davis is next scheduled to appear for arraignment on August 21, 2023, before Judge Brian Telander.
