CL father, son face weapons charges

CRYSTAL LAKE – Two Crystal Lake men facing weapons charges are scheduled to appear in court next month.

Eric S. Sorenson, 29, was charged with three counts of unlawful possession of a firearm by a felon, three counts of unlawful possession of firearm ammunition by a felon and two counts of aggravated unlawful use of weapons, court documents show.

A Crystal Lake police officer found Sorenson in the rear of a building in an industrial area Sunday about 12:50 a.m., according to a news release. A search later turned up several loaded firearms in the trunk of a vehicle.

Sorenson is not eligible for firearm owner’s identification card. His father, Keith R. Sorenson, purchased the weapons legally, the news release states.

Police later charged Keith R. Sorenson, 60, with illegal sale of a firearm.

Additional weapons and ammunition later were seized from the Sorenson home. Police said the investigation is ongoing.
