Police say a Wonder Lake man, arrested for burglarizing multiple businesses, bonded out of jail only to be arrested again hours later for burglarizing a church in Wonder Lake.
Christopher A. Kalisz, 39, of the 8400 block of Stillwater Road in Wonder Lake, was originally arrested on June 8, according to the McHenry County Sheriff’s Office.
He was charged in a series of burglaries.
The first burglary took place on May 27 at the Wonder Foods in the 7500 block of Hancock Drive in Wonder Lake.
An investigation revealed that Kalisz forced entry to the business and surveillance video showed him taking lottery tickets and a donation jar, the sheriff’s office said.
Additional surveillance video showed that a previous theft had also occurred there on May 18 where a suspect, later identified as Kalisz, took a donation jar.
Detectives obtained surveillance video from a gas station where the lottery tickets were redeemed.
Another burglary occurred on June 5 when Kalisz allegedly forced entry into Dusty’s Pizza in the 7600 block of Howe Road in Wonder Lake.
A third burglary occurred at the Subway in the 7400 block of Hancock Drive in Wonder Lake on June 8.
Kalisz was identified as the suspect in all the incidents and arrested without incident, according to the sheriff’s office.
After Kalisz’s arrest, he was interviewed by the McHenry Police Department who charged him with four additional counts of burglary in connection with a burglary that occurred at Kim and Patty’s Cafe in McHenry.
Kalisz was taken to the McHenry County Jail where he was released after posting 10% of his $50,000 bond around 8 p.m. Sunday.
The sheriff’s office responded around 2:05 a.m. Monday to a call of a person trespassing captured on Ring doorbell video at the Wonder Lake Bible Church in the 7500 block of Howe Road in Wonder Lake.
Deputies arrived with the Wonder Lake Police Department and entered the church.
Kalisz, who was freed from jail just hours earlier, ran out of the building and was immediately taken into custody by deputies.
He was found to have numerous burglary tools as well as money from a church fundraiser, the sheriff’s office said.
Deputies checked other businesses in the area and did not locate any other break-ins.
Kalisz faces additional charges of burglary to a place of worship, violation of bail bond, criminal damage to property at a place of worship, possession of burglary tools and theft at a place of worship.
