A Mundelein man wanted for armed robbery was caught during an arrest warrant after he tried to run away by jumping from a third-floor balcony in Waukegan, the Lake County Sheriff’s Office said.
Harold A. Curtis, 32, of the 26200 block of North Violet Drive in unincorporated Mundelein, was wanted on felony charges of armed robbery, aggravated robbery, residential burglary, robbery, unlawful possession of weapon by a felon, theft, and reckless discharge of a firearm. The warrant, which carried a $1 million bond, was issued on March 22 relating to an incident that happened in North Chicago, Lake County Sheriff’s Office Sgt. Christopher Covelli said.
The Lake County Sheriff’s Office Warrants Team and U.S. Marshals arrested Curtis on Thursday at an apartment in the 2800 block of Glen Flora Avenue in Waukegan.
Authorities approached the apartment and saw Curtis on a third-floor balcony. Police entered the apartment and saw him jump from the third-floor balcony to the second-floor balcony, Sgt. Covelli said.
Police took Curtis into custody on the second-floor balcony and transported him to the Lake County Jail where he remains held on $1 million bond. Curtis appeared in court Friday morning.
