A Round Lake Park man has been charged with burglarizing multiple businesses in Lake in the Hills and fleeing from police officers who tried to arrest him.
Marc A. Hernandez, 19, of the 500 block of East Washington Street in Round Lake Park, was charged with two counts of burglary, attempted burglary, two counts of criminal damage to property over $500, criminal trespass to vehicles, theft over $500 and resisting a peace officer.
A criminal complaint filed in McHenry County Circuit Court alleges Hernandez entered Elite Lawn Care in the 8700 block of Pyott Road in Lake in the Hills with the intent to commit theft on May 11.
He damaged a service gate and glass side window to Elite Lawn Care, the complaint said. While at the business, he operated a 2012 Ford F-250 truck.
Hernandez also allegedly entered Fox Valley Motorsports in the 8700 block of Pyott Road in Lake in the Hills with the intent to commit theft, the complaint said.
At Fox Valley Motorsports, Hernandez allegedly damaged four office doors and one glass door.
While at the business, Hernandez allegedly stole 15 Illinois registration stickers, which have a combined value of over $2,200, the complaint said.
The complaint said that Hernandez took a substantial step towards burglarizing First Class Towing, also located in the 8700 block of Pyott Road in Lake in the Hills, when he damaged the entrance door to the business.
Officers with the Lake in the Hills Police Department responded to the scene and attempted to take Hernandez into custody but he allegedly fled from them.
Hernandez was arrested around 1:30 a.m. on May 11, court records show.
He was released from the McHenry County Jail the next day after posting 10% of his $40,000 bond.
A court hearing is scheduled next for Monday morning.
