Police: Gun claim unfounded at DeKalb apartment complex

Jarrell T. Haynes, 29, of Chicago, was charged with unlawful possession of a controlled substance, criminal trespassing and disorderly conduct.
Jarrell T. Haynes, 29, of Chicago, was charged with unlawful possession of a controlled substance, criminal trespassing and disorderly conduct.

DeKALB – Authorities said Monday that they never found a gun after evacuating University Village residents for about two hours Sunday when a woman claimed her boyfriend was threatening her with one.

DeKalb police believe the claim was fabricated, Lt. Bob Redel said. Police did find 22 tabs of ecstasy on the boyfriend, a 29-year-old Chicago man, authorities said.

Jarrell T. Haynes, of the 7200 block of South Morgan Street, was charged with unlawful possession of a controlled substance, criminal trespass and disorderly conduct. If convicted of the most serious charge, drug possession, Haynes could face up to 15 years in prison; probation would not be an option.

Haynes previously had been banned from the property in the 600 block of North Annie Glidden Road but refused to leave Sunday evening when police told him to leave, court records show.

Bond was set at $35,000, which requires posting $3,500 to be released while the case is pending. Haynes is next due in court Dec. 7.
