According to an arrest affidavit, officers executed a search warrant at Wallace’s residence and found two handguns, one of them stolen in Phoenix, Illinois.

Officers then reportedly discovered Wallace had a previous felony charge in 2005 in Cook County, Illinois, of possession of a controlled substance, the affidavit said.
