A man was charged Saturday after police found an assault-style rifle and handgun inside his vehicle when he was was pulled over after driving out of O’Hare International Airport on the Northwest Side, police said.

Shortly after 8 a.m., officers saw the driver, Santos Zamora, 32, of Sheboygan, Wisconsin, speeding as he left O’Hare International  Airport, and pulled him over in the 5600 block of North Cumberland, Chicago Police said.

A handgun was initially found inside the vehicle, but a more thorough search also revealed an AR-15 rifle and a pressure cooker in the vehicle’s trunk.

Zamora was taken into custody and two other people were detained while the CPD Organized Crime Bureau and Joint Terrorism Task Force were called to conduct an investigation, police said.

Neither the guns nor the pressure cooker, which had remnants of food and cooking grease inside, were believed to have been intended for any acts of violence in the city, police said.

Zamora said he was in Chicago to drop off a friend at the airport and was cooperative with officers and federal agents, police said.
