PEORIA (WMBD) — A male juvenile was arrested Saturday on gun-related charges after police seized a ghost handgun with an extended magazine. A ghost gun is self-assembled, oftentimes with parts purchased online, and doesn’t have a serial number.

According to the Peoria Police Department’s Special Investigations Division, they were conducting a weapons-related investigation in the 1800 block of West Glen when they located the handgun. A short time later, officers located the juvenile at a nearby business.

The juvenile was taken into custody for unlawful use of a weapon, no FOID card and underage possession of a handgun. He was later released into the custody of his family.
