Two admitted gang members and another man were arrested Friday on drug and weapons charges at Oak Lawn’s Fall on the Green festival, police said.
Mohammed Ziko, 19, of Bridgeview; Andrew T. Miller, 22, of Harvey; both members of Satan Disciples, and Daniel J. Holdcroft, 21, of Worth, were arrested at 11 p.m. near the entrance of the Oak Lawn Library, police said.
Police recognized the men, as they had spoken with them earlier in the evening at the fest, according to reports. The men said they were leaving the fest when they were stopped by police.
Holdcroft was charged with unlawful use of a weapon, after he told police that he was carrying a knife, police said.
Ziko and Miller were charged with possession of marijuana and drug equipment. Miller also was charged with intent to deliver marijuana, police said.
Police said Miller placed something in a flower bed, which turned out to be a plastic bag containing marijuana and a pipe. He tried to walk away from police when they approached him.
A police officer activated his taser and ordered Miller to the ground. He complied and was arrested. He was in possession of a digital scale.
Ziko told police the marijuana and pipe belonged to him and he placed them in the flower bed, which led him to be arrested, police said.
