A Waukegan man allegedly resisted arrest, leaving a deputy injured, and was found with a large quantity of methamphetamine, fentanyl and other drugs in McHenry County.
William E. Gilbert, 41, of Waukegan, was charged with manufacturing or delivery of methamphetamine, possession of methamphetamine, manufacturing or delivery of heroin, possession of heroin, manufacturing or delivery of cocaine, manufacturing or delivery of fentanyl, two counts of possession of a controlled substance, resisting a peace officer causing injury and obstructing a peace officer.
A criminal complaint filed in McHenry County Circuit Court alleges Gilbert possessed with the intent to deliver 100-400 grams of a substance containing methamphetamine around 12:30 p.m. last Tuesday.
The complaint said he also possessed 15-100 grams of a substance containing heroin, less than 200 grams of a substance containing fentanyl and less than 15 grams of a substance containing cocaine.
The McHenry County Sheriff’s Office attempted to arrest Gilbert but he began resisting arrest when being placed into handcuffs, the complaint said.
Gilbert pulled away from deputies and fled on foot before locking himself in a vehicle, the complaint said.
A deputy attempted to gain entry to the vehicle through a window and injured his right hand.
McHenry County Judge Michael Coppedge ordered Gilbert held on a $250,000 bond during an initial court hearing.
Gilbert was released from the McHenry County Jail after a family member of his posted 10% of the bond.
The most serious charges are Class X felonies, which carry six to 30 years in the Illinois Department of Corrections.
Gilbert is scheduled to appear in court again on September 22 for a preliminary hearing.
