gun_in_chestBourbonnais, IL – May 30, 2013 –  An agent of 5 Star Recovery was reportedly accosted by a hostile borrower at gunpoint on Tuesday as he attempted contact with the borrower for a repossession attempt.

According to police, a repossession agent of 5 Star Recovery reported to Bourbonnais police that he had been waiting at a residence for a borrower to return so he could attempt the repossession of a van, when the borrower, James R. Felkamp, 35, arrived at around 5:25 p.m.

Felkamp allegedly got out of his car and pushed the Repo Man off his lawn and told the repo man, “I’m gonna f***ing kill you,” and proceeded to grab a handgun from inside the vehicle and racked the 9mm handgun, putting a round in the chamber.

The Repo Man retreated and called police.

When officers arrived, a search of Felkamp’s vehicle but found no gun. Felkamp, who had a valid Firearm Owner Identification card, reported to police that he had access to guns but did not threaten the Repo Man with a weapon as claimed.

The unnamed Repo Man told officers that Felkamp took the gun into his garage. Officers then requested to search the garage and Felkamp declined.

Later, at around 8:10 p.m. the same night, police obtained a search warrant for the garage and inside they found a Sig Sauer 9mm handgun with a bullet in the chamber.

Felkamp was arrested for battery, aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and unlawful use of a weapon. He was taken to Jerome Combs Detention Center.
