State Police Find Forged Cards, Metal Knuckles in Car, Arrest Two

Posted by wlpo on February 12, 2016

You’ve heard of some drivers on the interstate being “white-knuckled”, but metal-knuckled?

That’s what state police would find after pulling a car that was allegedly going fast on Interstate 80 near the Interstate 39 exits. Police say there was a strong marijuana smell that led them to search the car where they found metal knuckles, a credit card reader/encoder, and 33 fake debit/gift cards.

21-year old Emani Hollingsworth from Robbins, IL, was arrested for DUI of Drugs, Possession of a Theft Device, and Speeding. His passenger, 30-year old Eddie Thomas of Chicago was charged with an Unlawful Use of a Weapon.

Both men are currently being held at the LaSalle County Jail.
