A 16-year-old Montgomery boy is facing a half-dozen charges after police said they saw him toss a bag of marijuana out his car window Tuesday night.

Kendall County sheriff’s deputies said they were pulling the teen over on a traffic violation at Route 30 and Fifth Street in Oswego at about 7 p.m. Tuesday when a bag containing marijuana was thrown out the car window. The teen was charged with obstructing justice and possession of less than 2.5 grams of marijuana, and with no valid registration, improper use of registration, operating an uninsured vehicle — and depositing trash on a highway.


Lenard Rounds, of the 100 block of Saugatuck Road, Montgomery, was taken to Provena Mercy Medical Center with back pain after a two-car accident at 8:10 a.m. Tuesday at Orchard Road and Illinois Avenue, Aurora police said. Lauri A. Young, of the 12000 block of Helmar Road, Newark, was charged with failure to reduce speed after her vehicle collided with Rounds’, police said. Rounds was treated and released.

Rudy A. VanEtten, of the 900 block of Walter Avenue, Aurora, was taken to Rush-Copley Medical Center after a two-car accident at 2:49 p.m. Tuesday at State Street and Second Avenue.
