Christopher Walker, 36, of the 100 block of Maude Avenue, was arrested for unlawful possession of a controlled substance and unlawful possession with intent to deliver and several traffic violations, according to the Lake County Sheriff’s Office.

Walker was stopped Nov. 30 at 7:15 p.m. near Route 12 and Quentin Road in Lake Zurich when the sheriff’s deputy making the stop became suspicious and requested a K-9 unit from a nearby police department.
