Two Chicago men have been charged with possessing weapons and attempting to run from Orland Park police on Tuesday. 

At about 3:30 p.m., Orland Park police officers noticed a black vehicle making several traffic violations wile traveling east on 151st Street from 94th Avenue.

Officers stopped the vehicle at the 9100 block of 151st Street and approached the vehicle.

While talking with officers, Robinson allegedly provided a fake name and refused to roll his window down more than a few inches.

While at the side of the vehicle, officers said they could see Robinson sitting on something, and requested that each person exit the vehicle.


Robinson was asked to exit first, and instead, he allegedly reached over to the gear shifter and attempted to place the vehicle in drive while telling the driver to "Go."

Officers were able to remove the keys from the ignition and disable the vehicle.

Robinson then allegedly jumped into the back seat of the vehicle with Collins, and they both exited the rear driver's side door and attempted to run.

When Robinson jumped to the back seat, officers said they saw a handgun on the seat where he was originally seated.

Collins and Robinson were apprehended as they attempted to flee from the vehicle, and were taken into custody.

The driver was removed from the vehicle.
