An Algonquin man, who was found with a replica handgun, was charged after police received a report of a man with a gun call in the parking lot of the Crystal Lake Home Depot.
Matthew B. Mulville, 30, of Algonquin, was charged with disorderly conduct, a Class C misdemeanor.
The Crystal Lake Police Department responded around 2:53 p.m. Wednesday to the Home Depot, 4447 Northwest Highway, for a report of a man with a gun call.
Crystal Lake Deputy Police Chief Thomas Kotlowski said that witnesses observed an adult male holding what was reported to be a black handgun while he was sitting inside his vehicle.
Officers arrived on scene, setup a protective perimeter and made contact with the man as he exited his vehicle, Kotlowski said. Officers took Mulville into custody without incident.
The suspected handgun was found to be a BB gun and there were no injuries as a result of the incident.
Witnesses told Lake and McHenry County Scanner that the parking lot was locked down and numerous police officers responded, some armed with rifles, during the incident.
Mulville was released after posting bail. Court information regarding the case was not immediately available Thursday morning.
