Five Lake County men arrested on drug, gun charges

Five suburban men are facing drug or weapons charges after a four-month police investigation involving Lake County and federal authorities.

Detectives with the Lake County sheriff's Gang Task Force bought heroin or guns from the suspects as part of the investigation, authorities said Thursday.

Some of the arrests were made Wednesday, and others in late January.

Police said they purchased heroin 10 times from Joshua D. Allen, 29, of the 3000 block of Casimir Pulaski Drive, Waukegan. Charges against him include five counts of unlawful possession of a controlled substance with intent to deliver.

Police say they purchased heroin and guns from Anthony E. Hubanks, 27, of the 1700 block of North Avenue, Waukegan. When Hubanks was arrested at the Tri-State Tollway's Lake Forest Oasis, he had guns with him, police said.

Hubanks is facing federal charges of firearm possession and distribution of a controlled substance. His charges are federal because several guns and drugs were involved, police said.

Essex D. Styles, 24, of the 200 block of West Forest Avenue in Round Lake, was arrested with Hubanks, police said. Styles is charged with two counts of unlawful use of a weapon by a felon and two counts of aggravated unlawful use of a weapon.

Police said they purchased heroin from Darius M. Smith, 26, of the 2800 block of Grandville Avenue, Waukegan. Charges against him include unlawful delivery of a controlled substance.

Police said they purchased heroin from Kieshaun D. Smith, 21, of the 1100 block of Depot Road, Gurnee. Charges against him include unlawful delivery of a controlled substance and unlawful possession of a controlled substance.

Assisting sheriff's police were the FBI; the Drug Enforcement Administration; the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives; and the Homeland Security Department.
