A Wisconsin man was arrested Oct. 21 after allegedly stealing a pair of shotguns from a U.S. marshal’s car in Woodstock and threatening two police officers.
Treyveon Q. Ashley, 21, of Hayward, Wis., faces multiple charges, including possession of a stolen firearm, threatening a public official, burglary, theft, criminal trespass to a vehicle, financial identity theft, and possession of a firearm without a firearm owner’s identification card.
The Woodstock Police Department launched an investigation Oct. 20 into at least two reported vehicle burglaries, according to a press release from the WPD. During the investigation, police learned three shotguns and one pistol — along with other items, including a wallet — had been taken from a vehicle parked overnight in the Applewood subdivision.
The shotguns were stolen from a U.S. marshal, Woodstock Police Chief John Lieb said, and they belonged to the federal government.
“The vehicle reportedly was secured,” Lieb said. “We are still investigating whether the vehicle was pried open.”
While being questioned by police, Ashley allegedly threatened to kill two WPD detectives, Lieb added.
The investigation is tied to the case of Maurice C. Timberlake, a Woodstock man arrested Oct. 21 in connection with gunfire on Barbary Lane Oct. 20. Lieb said police believe Ashley and Timberlake were working together, because Timberlake allegedly had firearms associated with the Oct. 20 vehicle burglaries. All firearms stolen in the incident have been recovered, according to the WPD.
Police found Ashley after he allegedly used a debit card from the stolen wallet to rent something at a RedBox kiosk, Lieb said.
Ashley’s next court date is set for Nov. 14. He is being held in the McHenry County Jail on $6,000 bond.
