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.
