The owners of the Huntley Dairy Mart have posted bond after investigators found child pornography, a drug-growing operation and numerous guns in their home in Crystal Lake where children were living.
Christopher S. Hopp, 38, of Crystal Lake, was charged with two counts of production of child pornography, two counts of possession of child pornography, two counts of unauthorized video recording, possession with intent to deliver psilocybin, unlawful possession of psilocybin, four counts of possession of a firearm with a revoked FOID, possession of ammunition without a FOID and two counts of child endangerment.
Corinne E. Breskovich, 42, of Crystal Lake, was charged with two counts of child endangerment, four counts of possession of a firearm without a FOID, possession of ammunition without a FOID, possession with intent to deliver psilocybin and unlawful possession of psilocybin.
Criminal complaints filed in McHenry County Circuit Court allege Hopp and Breskovich possessed with the intent to deliver more than 200 grams of a substance containing psilocybin.
Court documents show investigators executed a search warrant on Thursday at their residence in the 800 block of Wedgewood Drive in Crystal Lake.
Investigators found a “psilocybin mushroom grow operation” in the basement of the home, court documents show.
Psilocybin mushrooms and psilocybin mushroom seeds, which totaled 236 grams, were recovered.
Investigators also recovered a scale, numerous mason jars and approximately $2,000 in cash near the psilocybin products.
Investigators found Breskovich and Hopp in possession of a Taurus PT22 pistol, a Remington 12 gauge shotgun, a Remington 22 long rifle and a Ruger 357 magnum.
They also recovered ammunition for the firearms.
Breskovich and Hopp did not have Firearm Owners Identification (FOID) cards on their person, the complaint said. Hopp has a revoked FOID, the complaint added.
The complaints said Breskovich and Hopp knowingly caused the life and health of two children, a 6-year-old and a 16-year-old, to be endangered by having the firearms unsecured in the home along with the drugs and ammunition accessible to them.
One of the complaints alleges that Hopp created child pornography by secretly video recording a juvenile girl on multiple occasions.
The juvenile apparently did not realize she was being recorded while she was undressed in a bathroom and bedroom, the complaint said.
Hopp and Breskovich own Windy City Landholdings LLC, which owns Huntley Dairy Mart, a popular food and ice cream restaurant in Huntley.
A judge ordered Hopp held on a $400,000 bond and ordered Breskovich held on a $150,000 bond.
Both indicated that they would be able to post the bond.
A hearing to verify the bond funds were from legitimate sources was held Tuesday.
Hopp was released Tuesday morning after posting $40,000 cash and Breskovich was released after posting $15,000 cash, court records show.
