A press release from the Woodstock Police Department:
Arrest – Burglary to Motor Vehicle and Possession of Stolen Firearms
On Friday, October 20th , 2017, at 12:33 p.m., the Woodstock Police Department Patrol Division initiated an investigation regarding at least two reported incidents of burglary to motor vehicle that occurred within its jurisdiction.
During the course of the investigations, it was reported that several firearms (three shotguns and one pistol) along with numerous other items had been taken from one of the vehicles that had been parked overnight in the Applewood subdivision.
A person of interest, Treyveon Q. Ashley of Woodstock, was identified during the quickly evolving investigation.
Detectives from the Woodstock Police Department Criminal Investigation Division located and met with Ashley.
Based off of this interaction with Ashley, the detectives conferred with the McHenry County State’s Attorney’s Office, and then a search warrant was obtained; upon executing the search warrant, two of the shotguns were recovered as evidence.
Again, conferring with the McHenry County State’s Attorney’s Office, charges were approved (see below) and Ashley was transferred to the McHenry County Correctional Facility.
This investigation is closely tied to the recent Unlawful Discharge of a Firearm investigation in which Maurice C. Timberlake has been charged with similar crimes.
During that facet of the investigation, both the stolen pistol and the third shotgun were recovered, thus, all the weapons that had been stolen in this incident have been accounted for.
