A Chicago man has been released on a $30,000 bond after being arrested by Evanston Police on drug and weapons charges.
Police Cmdr. Ryan Glew says officers from the special operations group were conducting a narcotics investigation last week in the 2800 block of West Lunt Avenue in Chicago when they arrested 36-year-old Joshua Reizner for possession of four ecstasy pills.
When detectives searched Reizner’s residence on the block they say they found a loaded Springfield XD 9 mm handgun with an extended magazine, an unloaded Smith & Wesson SD 9 mm, a 9 mm bullet, 90 grams of cannabis, eight additional pills of ecxtacy, also known as MDMA, and a variety of drug paraphernalia.
A third handgun was recovered and a second suspect was detained for an unlawful use of a weapon investigation. The second suspect was released pending lab results to establish possession of the handgun.
Reizner faces three felony counts of delivery of a controlled substance, a felony count of possession of cannabis with intent to deliver, a felony count of possession of a controlled substance with intent to deliver, a felony count of delivery of methamphetamine and three misdemeanor charges for not having a firearm owner’s identification card
His next court date is Nov. 29 at the Skokie Courthouse.
