Steven B. Radak, 36, of Algonquin.

An Algonquin man, who was out on bond for a drug charge, has been arrested and charged with trafficking a large amount of cannabis into McHenry County, prosecutors said.

Steven B. Radak, 36, of Algonquin, was charged with cannabis trafficking over 2,000 grams, two counts of possession of cannabis with intent to deliver over 2,000 grams and possession of cannabis over 2,000 grams.

A criminal complaint filed in McHenry County Circuit Court alleges Radak brought 2,500 grams or more of cannabis into McHenry County on Monday.

McHenry County Assistant State’s Attorney Ken Hudson said the McHenry County Sheriff’s Office Narcotics Task Force launched an investigation on Monday into Radak.

The task force became aware that he was allegedly receiving several large packages through the mail containing cannabis.

Radak was observed dropping the packages off at a residence, Hudson said.

A search warrant was obtained and the packages were searched and confirmed to be “full of cannabis.”

A search warrant was then obtained for Radak’s home on Twickenham Court in Algonquin.

Officers discovered more cannabis, the shipping labels for the packages already discovered, other similar boxes to the ones recovered, a vacuum sealer, a scale and other packaging materials.

Postal service records show the packages originated in California, Hudson said.

Radak had been out on bond at the time for possession with intent to deliver cannabis, a Class 3 felony.

Radak was arrested and transported to the McHenry County Jail where he remains held on a $150,000 bond.

He would need to post $15,000 cash in order to be released and be required to prove the funds for bail were legitimate.

A hearing on a motion to reduce bond is scheduled for Friday.
