A judge has ordered two of three suspects held in jail pending trial after they were arrested following a police chase from Lake in the Hills that ended with a stolen car crashing in Algonquin.
Officers with the Lake in the Hills Police Department received information about a black Acura SUV, which was later identified as stolen, on December 17, according to Lake in the Hills Police Department Public Information Officer Amanda Schmitt.
The 2010 Acura, which bore a “ROUTE 66” license plate, was involved in suspected criminal activity.
Schmitt said the driver was wanted on multiple warrants and was considered to be armed and dangerous.
Officers attempted to conduct a traffic stop on the Acura around 7:50 p.m.
The vehicle, which committed several traffic violations, fled from the officers near Hilltop Road and Crystal Lake Road and a pursuit was initiated, Schmitt said.
The chase went through a residential area, southbound on Crystal Lake Road and continued eastbound on Algonquin Road.
Algonquin Police Department Sgt. Nate Stenger told Lake and McHenry County Scanner that Algonquin officers were notified of the pursuit.
Algonquin officers stood by but did not become involved in the chase, Stenger said.
Schmitt said the lead squad car performed a precision immobilization technique, also known as a “PIT” maneuver, on the vehicle to end the pursuit east of Pyott Road.
The Acura crashed into a light pole, which fell down into the roadway, near the U.S. Post Office on Algonquin Road west of Route 31 around 7:55 p.m.
The Algonquin-Lake in the Hills Fire Protection District responded to the scene and three ambulances were dispatched.
The three occupants in the car were transported to the hospital and released the same evening.
Eastbound Algonquin Road was shut down for approximately 30 minutes.
The driver of the Acura was identified as Jordan P. Carmody, 29, of Cary, according to a police report.
Carmody was charged with aggravated fleeing to elude, resisting arrest, driving while license suspended or revoked, possession of methamphetamine and obstructing justice. He was also issued numerous traffic citations.
Carmody was also wanted on at least four separate arrest warrants.
He was wanted out of Buffalo Grove, Lombard and Aurora for retail theft. The fourth warrant was issued by the Illinois Department of Corrections for a parole violation.
Two passengers, identified as David A. Bastidas, 32, of Woodstock, and Krystina Ziebell, 33, of McHenry, were also arrested, according to the report.
Bastidas was charged with possession of a controlled substance, possession of drug paraphernalia and obstructing justice. He was also wanted for burglary out of Addison.
Ziebell was charged with possession of a controlled substance, possession of methamphetamine and possession of drug paraphernalia.
McHenry County Judge Michael Chmiel ordered Carmody and Ziebell detained in the McHenry County Jail pending trial after finding them a flight risk.
Bastidas was released with pre-trial conditions, court records show. He was transferred to another agency outside of McHenry County for other charges.
