Sean E. Kalinoski, 32, of Vernon Hills.

A Vernon Hills man is being held on a $1 million bond after police recovered a large number of drugs, including over 1000 LSD squares, at his residence last month.

Sean E. Kalinoski, 32, of the 300 block of Meadow Court in Vernon Hills, was charged with 10 counts of unlawful possession of a controlled substance and two counts of unlawful possession of a controlled substance with intent to deliver.

The Lake County Metropolitan Enforcement Group (LCMEG), which is made up of dozens of police agencies, conducted a search warrant at Kalinoski’s residence in the 300 block of Meadow Court in Vernon Hills.

The search warrant took place in the morning on April 29, according to a criminal complaint filed in Lake County Circuit Court.

Officers seized 198 grams of psilocybin mushrooms, at least 1,000 perforated blotter paper squares of lysergic acid diethylamide (LSD) and over 83 grams of ketamine.

All 12 charges against Kalinoski are felonies, including four of them which are Class X felonies, the most serious felony in Illinois.

Court records show that police also seized $600 in cash during the warrant.

Lake County Judge Paul Novak ordered Kalinoski to be held in the Lake County Jail on a $1 million bond. He would need to post $100,000 cash in order to be released.

Kalinoski is scheduled to appear in court again on Friday for a preliminary hearing.
