INTO THE DALEY CENTER
Wednesday, March 5, 2014
—Cook County Sheriff’s deputies took a 32-year-old Chicago man into custody Tuesday morning after he brought a loaded gun and other weapons into the Daley Center, Sheriff Thomas J. Dart said today.
At approximately 9 a.m. on Tuesday, a man dressed in a blue uniform and black body armor approached a deputy sheriff inside the Daley Center and said he was there to sign in his weapon. The man displayed carrying a semi-automatic pistol on his right hip, under a black jacket.
Upon further investigation, the deputies learned that the man, identified as Lumani Lubemba, works for a security firm, but is not authorized to carry a firearm.
Lubemba was taken into the custody. During a custodial search, deputies found that he had in his possession three, fully-loaded magazines, containing 15 live 40-caliber, hollow-point rounds, a 4.5 inch knife, an ASP baton, pepper spray, and a pair of handcuffs.
He was charged with aggravated unlawful use of a weapon and with impersonation of a peace officer.
He was convicted in March 2011 of carrying/possessing a firearm.
Lubemba is scheduled to appear in bond court today at the George N. Leighton Criminal Court Building.
Sheriff Dart reminds the public that the defendant is presumed innocent until proven guilty by the government in a court of law.
