Stebic RELATED STORIES • Judge denies custody request Finding Lisa Anyone with information on Lisa Stebic's location is asked to call the Plainfield Police Department at (815) 267-7217 or Will County Crime Stoppers at (800) 323-6734. In 1995, Craig was living at 332 Fourth St., on Waukegan's Near North Side. Then 29, he was arrested by Lincolnshire police on Jan. 3 after driving his Toyota pickup truck on Riverwoods Road, past Daniel Wright Middle and Laura B. Sprague schools. Police said the truck was stopped after officers noticed the windshield was shattered. Found in the bed of the truck were four weapons -- including two assault rifles. The guns were in plain view, according to police, and the truck did not have a cap over the bed. The weapons included a Chinese-made AK-47 semiautomatic assault rifle, a Ruger Mini-14 assault rifle, a Universal 10-gauge double-barrel shotgun, and a Desert Eagle .44 Magnum semiautomatic handgun. Stebic told police he had just returned from hunting in Michigan's Upper Peninsula. Police said Stebic was cooperative. Among several weapons-related charges the most serious was a felony offense of possessing firearms within 1,000 feet of a school. He also was charged with operating an unsafe motor vehicle and driving with a revoked driver's license. At the time, Stebic was wanted on a Lake County warrant for failing to appear in court on a charge of driving with a revoked license. On April 7, 1995, he entered a negotiated guilty plea in Lake County Circuit Court to a reduced charge of illegal possession of firearms without having a state Firearm Owner's Identification card. He was sentenced to court supervision and fined $200. On April 1, 1996, his sentence was terminated early. Court records indicate the Stebics' Plainfield home has higher mortgages on it than the value of the home. They had purchased the home for $208,411 in 2000, and it now has $313,000 in mortgages on it. Homeowners can liquidate the equity in their homes in exchange for cash. Lisa reportedly was moving foward with a petition to evict Craig from the home. She was earning less than $10,000 a year as a lunchroom worker, while he was earning $80,000 annually as a pipefitter. Reportedly, he had been laid off recently.
