CHICAGO (Sun-Times Media Wire) -

Three men have been charged with carrying guns while filming a rap video Tuesday in the South Side Englewood neighborhood, including a man on a work release program at a northwest Indiana jail.

Officers responded to a report of criminal trespassing in the 7400 block of South Eggleston Avenue at 2:50 p.m. Tuesday and found several men in the rear filming a rap video, police said.

Three men were charged after three weapons were found, police said.

Ronnie Ramsey, 22, of the 2600 block of West 93rd Avenue in Crown Point, Ind., was charged with one count of unlawful use of a weapon by a felon and criminal trespass to land, police said. That address is the Lake County (Ind.) Jail.

Ramsey was on probation in Lake County after having been sentenced Oct. 30, 2012, to three years probation for attempted robbery. But on June 4, his probation was revoked and he was ordered to serve his sentence in Lake County Community Corrections Kimbrough Work Program.

On Thursday, a community corrections official filed a petition to expel him from that program.

Sheldon Cobb, 24, of the 500 block of Exchange Avenue in Calumet City and Rayvon Lollis, 19, of the 2700 block of East Goodrich, in Burnham were each charged with one count of aggravated unlawful of use of a weapon and criminal trespass to land, police said.

On Thursday, Judge Laura Sullivan ordered Ramsey held on a $70,000 bond, and Cobb and Lolis held on $25,000 each, Cook County State's Attorney's office spokesman Stephen Campbell said.

All three are due back in court Sept. 3.
