HARVARD – A 23-year-old Harvard man remained in jail Tuesday on gun charges after police said they found a stolen revolver and ammunition in his car.
Juan M. Alonzo, of the 700 block of North Lincoln Street, is charged with possession of a stolen firearm and possession of a firearm without a valid firearm owner’s identification card, according to a complaint filed in McHenry County Circuit Court.
Representatives from the Harvard Police Department were not available Tuesday to comment on the charges.
In the complaint, police said that they found a stolen .22-caliber revolver and nine .22-caliber rounds of ammunition in Alonzo’s car Sunday.
If Alonzo is convicted of possession of a stolen firearm, he could be sentenced to three to seven years in prison.
His bond is set at $50,000, meaning he must post $5,000 bail to be released.
Alonzo was appointed a public defender at his court appearance Monday.
He is due in court Wednesday for a bond hearing.
