Ammunition Dump

Question of the day: How does your LakeCountyEye spend recreation time?

Answer: Monitoring overseas arms shipments into Lake County, of course.

Your LakeCountyEye found this US Customs bill. The fine print says 8 shipping containers were brought into the U.S. Each contained 1536 "H2A METAL BOXES", with each box containing "CARTRIDGES FOR WEAPONS INERT PROJECTILE". These were imported into the U.S. on June 3 of this year:
The cargo was shipped from India.

The cargo was shipped to this consignee address:
  • Strategic Defense Imports
  • U.S.A.
County records indicate the the address belongs to Michael A Danforth:
County records indicate that Michael A Danforth is a Lake County County Board Commissioner (District 17):
Board member Danforth represents the 17th District, which includes Island Lake, Lake Barrington, Port Barrington, North Barrington, Barrington Hills, Tower Lakes, Fox River Grove, and portions of Wauconda and Hawthorn Woods. He has been on the board since February 2017, and is currently a member of the Ethics & Oversight, Law & Judicial, and Legislative committees. His main priorities on the board are property tax reform, fiscal accountability, safety and security for our communities

Note to canvassers: Before you go knocking on the door of Michael A Danforth, put out those cigarettes!
