Two people have been arrested and warrants have been issued for two others after a SWAT team raided a drug house in Fox River Grove on Wednesday.

Kosma M. Harasimowicz, 21, and Austin J. Strong, 21, both of the 500 block of Opatrny Drive in Fox River Grove, were arrested after police raided their residence during a warrant.

Police said that a monthlong investigation began after authorities received complaints from local high school resource officers about drug activity at Harasimowicz and Strong’s residence in the 500 block of Opatrny Drive in Fox River Grove.

The McHenry County Sheriff’s SWAT Team conducted a search warrant at that home on Wednesday morning. They seized 641 grams of marijuana, 354 Xanax pills, 51 ecstasy pills, 6 Hydrocodone pills, 3 Valium pills, 1 gram of cocaine, 4 digital drug scales, packaging materials, multiple items of drug paraphernalia, and $2,323 in cash, sheriff’s officials said. The estimated street value of the drugs is $17,470, police said

Harasimowicz and Strong were both charged with unlawful possession of a controlled substance, possession of drug paraphernalia, delivery of marijuana, and possession of marijuana.

Harasimowicz was additionally charged with delivery of a controlled substance and delivery of a controlled substance within 1,000 feet of a school. Harasimowicz is being held on a $100,000 bond in the McHenry County Jail and Strong is being held on a $15,000 bond in the McHenry County Jail.

Authorities also issued arrest warrants for two additional suspects in the case. Javier G. Nunez-Garcia, 21, and David J. Fidowicz, 20, of Fox River Grove are facing charges of possession of a controlled substance, delivery of a controlled substance, and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Fidowicz is facing an additional charge of delivery and possession of marijuana. Nunez-Garcia is facing an additional charge of delivery of a controlled substance within 1,000 feet of a school.
