Three suspects were arrested after they fled from a stolen vehicle and Lake County Sheriff’s Canine Boomer found them hiding near Lake Villa.
The Lake County Sheriff’s Office said they were notified about a stolen vehicle out of Lake Forest around 8:30 a.m. Friday.
The Lake Forest Police Department notified the sheriff’s office and surrounding agencies regarding a possible location of the vehicle.
Lake County Sheriff’s Office Deputy Chief Christopher Covelli said the stolen vehicle became disabled in the area of Sheldon Road and Rollins Road in Grayslake.
Three suspects ran from the vehicle, Covelli said.
Sheriff’s deputies, Grayslake police, Round Lake Beach police, and Lake County Forest Preserve police searched the area where the three were last seen.
The suspects were soon spotted in the area of Route 45 and Rollins Road in unincorporated Lake Villa.
Lake County Sheriff’s Deputy Brian Kilpatrick and Canine Boomer responded and the three suspects were found hiding behind farm equipment.
The suspects immediately surrendered after learning Boomer was being deployed, Covelli said.
The Lake Forest Police Department responded to the scene to continue their investigation into the stolen vehicle.
On Tuesday, Boomer helped track down a suspect who fled from police during a pursuit that led to a crash in Pleasant Prairie.
