A search warrant executed by multiple tactical teams on April 9 has resulted in the seizure of ammunition, semi-automatic weapons and hundreds of grams of cannabis, according to a statement released by the Maywood Police Department.

At around 5:39 a.m., law enforcement officials with the Maywood Tactical Unit, assisted by the West Suburban Special Response Team and the Broadview Tactical Unit, executed a search warrant at 1207 S. 17th Ave., Unit B., in Maywood.

Authorities were targeting Jonathan Gilbert, 31, who police say is a “self-admitted and documented Gangster Disciple.”

Officers recovered one 9 mm pistol, one semi-automatic machine gun, one .22 caliber semi-automatic rifle, several rounds of ammunition and 250 grams of cannabis.

Gilbert faces three felony counts of unlawful use of a weapon by a felon, police say. He’s set to appear in bond court on April 10. VFP

    1. Are these the guns and drugs one commenter said, didn’t exist?, police was just setting them up!!!!!!! With all this illegal activities going on for decades, there are no real businesses from them, ie grocery store, decent restaurants, maybe a decent bakery. ….Most likely, you’re going to get a beauty salon.

  1. It hurts to see so many black guys end up in this situation I know johnathan good kids I changed my life I guess he was in love with the lifestyle in the streets you have to keep a gun to protect your self he was a good father and the government sell weed hopefully he can come from up under this and change his life

  2. Idk who wrote this article & I Know you are doing your job but you don’t know me or the situation.
