First Chicago Operation Legend prosecutions announced
Three men charged with illegally possessing guns and ammunition are the first in Chicago prosecuted under Operation Legend, officials announced Friday.
Darryl Collins, 30, of Dolton, is charged with one count of illegal possession of ammunition by a convicted felon. Romeo Holloway, 21, is charged with illegal possession of a firearm by felon. And Darryl Phillips 22, is charged with illegal possession of a machine gun, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Northern
District of Illinois. Operation Legend is intended to help local officials fight violent crime, but the program prompted backlash in Portland; activists there said agents in unmarked vehicles were making arrests without cause.
