The team also recovered a .45 caliber handgun, a 9 millimeter handgun, and three Firearm Owner’s Identification (FOID) cards in addition to resolving five FOID cases during their sweep Tuesday in Schaumburg, Palatine, Rolling Meadows, Arlington Heights, and surrounding areas.

On Wednesday, the Sheriff’s Central Warrant Unit arrested 11 people on variety of warrants including DUI, theft, and battery.

Today, the Sheriff’s Graffiti Unit cleaned up 47 locations – 19 in Rolling Meadows, 12 in Schaumburg, nine in Palatine, five in Elgin, and two in Hanover Park.
