(Lakemoor, IL) A Lakemoor man is in trouble with the law, for allegedly falsifying personal information to receive an Illinois firearms card. Lake County Sheriff’s officials say Grayson Ludovicus legally had his name changed from Daniel Borke in 2015. Then under his new identity he applied for a FOID card, and erroneously claimed that he was not a previously convicted felon. Authorities went to the 42-year-old’s home on Tuesday, but his wife, Kristen claimed he wasn’t home. Officials eventually forced their way into the home arresting both husband and wife…and securing 5 firearms and thousands of rounds of ammunition, that they claim were unsecured by a children’s play area. 10 other firearms said to have been purchased by Ludovicus were located at an Ingleside home. He is now facing various weapons charges, as his wife is charged with attempting to conceal his whereabouts. Grayson is being held on a 250-thousand-dollar bond, Kristen’s bond is currently unknown.
