Quincy Man Faces New Firearm Charges
A Quincy man is in custody on charges of possession of firearms by a felon after West Central Illinois Task Force agents used a search warrant at his residence at 706 North 4th in Quincy Thursday.
34-year-old Eric Padavic was arrested Monday morning after he turned himself in. Adams County court records show Padavic was charged in 2006 with unlawful delivery of methamphetamine, unlawful sale of a firearm to a felon and unlawful sale of a firearm without a valid FOID card. Padavic was sentenced to 30 months probation following a guilty plea to the meth and unlawful sale of a firearm charges.
Task Force agents report finding three rifles, two handguns and numerous rounds of ammunition.
