A Mundelein man and a Grayslake man were charged after detectives identified them as suspects who sprayed bystanders and a Metra station with a fire extinguisher in Libertyville.
The Libertyville Police Department responded around 8:54 p.m. December 13 to the Metra Station, 200 Lake Street, for a report of criminal damage to property.
Officers discovered a fire extinguisher had been discharged inside of the train station, according to Libertyville Police Department Sgt. Jason Kapusinski.
The extinguisher retardant had covered the interior of the building along with several people who were standing inside it, Kapusinski said.
Detectives reviewed surveillance video and conducted further investigation which led them to identify the suspects as 20-year-olds Daniel Cordova and Alex Kadziola.
Cordova, of the 19800 block of West Shore Drive in Mundelein, and Kadziola, of the 30400 block of North Chardon Lane in Grayslake, turned themselves in on March 4.
Police processed the two and charged them with criminal damage to property. Both were released after signing $164 personal recognizance bonds.
It is unclear why the two men discharged the fire extinguisher despite there being no fire.
They are scheduled to appear in court on April 4 at the Lake County Circuit Branch Court in Mundelein.
