A Bolingbrook man allegedly tried to ditch a loaded gun, cocaine and cannabis as he fled from police Wednesday night.

Isaiah J. Guy, 25, of the 100 block of Delaware, was arrested after Bolingbrook police responded to an anonymous report of a subject headed to Lot G on Wildwood Lane to sell drugs, according to police.

Lt. Mike Rompa said the anonymous tipster provided police with a detailed description of the subject, who was on foot. 

At around 10:39 p.m., Bolingbrook's Problem-Oriented Policing Unit observed a subject matching that description arrive near a vacant home in Lot G Wildwood, according to Rompa.

As police approached, the suspect, later identified as Guy, allegedly fled on foot, ignoring officers' orders to stop. 

Guy is accused of discarding several objects as he ran before fighting and actively resisting police as he was taken into custody, Rompa said. 

Rompa said police recovered the items allegedly tossed by Guy as he ran: cocaine, cannabis and a loaded .380 Smith & Wesson. 

Rompa said officers discovered that the gun was reported stolen in a Feb. 5 vehicle burglary in the 300 block of Woodcreek.

Guy is charged with unlawful use of a weapon, possession of a firearm by a felon, possession of a firearm without a FOID card, possession of a controlled substance, possession of cannabis, resisting a peace officer, possession of a stolen firearm and aggravated battery.

Will County court records show that Guy pleaded guilty to residential burglary in September 2008. Five months earlier, he also pleaded guilty to an identity theft charge, according to county records.

Bond information for Guy was not immediately available Thursday morning.
