KANKAKEE — Nickolas A. Skaggs, of Kankakee, was arrested by Kankakee Area Metropolitan Enforcement Group agents on weapons charges on Friday.

According to a release, the 29-year-old Skaggs was charged with unlawful possession by a felon, unlawful possession of ammunition by a felon and for no FOID card.

Agents served a search warrant at 653 E. River St., Apt. 1, in Kankakee. They seized two shotguns, a handgun and ammunition.

KAMEG Director Christopher Koerner said agents have seized 56 weapons this year. In 2017, KAMEG seized 71 weapons.
