VILLA PARK – A Bellwood man was charged with multiple felonies related to gun use and ownership after he was searched by a DuPage County Sheriff's deputy during a traffic stop Wednesday night in Villa Park.

Darryl A. Harrison, 31, of the 200 block of Marshall Avenue, Bellwood, was charged with aggravated unlawful use of a weapon, one count of unlawful use or possession of a firearm or ammunition by a convicted felon, deface firearm ID markings, possession of a firearm without a valid FOID card, possession of ammunition and possession of drug paraphernalia.

With Harrison was Julius Lumpkin, 24, of the 5700 block of West Midway Park, Chicago, who was charged with driving while license suspended and multiple traffic offenses.

At 9 p.m. July 17 near the Brandywine subdivision in unincorporated Villa Park, a sheriff's deputy stopped the vehicle Lumpkin was driving after observing multiple traffic violations.

During the traffic stop, the deputy realized that Lumpkin was driving on a suspended license and Harrison had active warrants in neighboring counties. The deputy also found a loaded, semi-automatic hand gun allegedly belonging to Harrison, along with drug paraphernalia.

Harrison was scheduled to appear in bond court Thursday morning; Lumpkin posted bond and was released.
