A Round Lake man has been sentenced to eight years in prison after he was caught possessing drugs and a stolen gun in McHenry before allegedly trying to escape a police officer.
Logan C. Kramer, 24, of Round Lake, was charged in August 2022 with aggravated delivery of methamphetamine, possession of a stolen firearm, possession of a stolen vehicle, unlawful possession of methamphetamine, aggravated unlawful use of a weapon, escape, three counts of possession of a controlled substance, obstructing justice, unlawful possession of firearm ammunition, possession of drug paraphernalia and unlawful possession of a firearm.
He was later additionally charged with various other charges, including armed violence.
A criminal complaint filed in McHenry County Circuit Court said Kramer possessed 15-100 grams of methamphetamine in a vehicle on August 22, 2022.
Officers with the McHenry Police Department found Kramer in possession of a stolen Ruger SR22 pistol and 10 .22 caliber bullets, the complaint said.
The vehicle Kramer was driving, a 2017 Chevrolet Equinox, was also stolen, the complaint said.
In addition to the methamphetamine, Kramer allegedly possessed 20 Alprazolam tablets, 10 Clonazepam tablets and 20 Adderall tablets.
Kramer initially gave detectives the name of “Kyle Garcia” and a birth date that was false, the complaint said. The complaint said Kramer knew he had an active warrant.
Two digital scales, containing a white powder residue that was suspected to be methamphetamine, were also found.
Kramer was taken to the hospital and once he was released, he ran from officers who tried picking him up for transport, the complaint said.
Court records show Kramer has been held in the McHenry County Jail since his arrest.
He entered into a negotiated plea deal earlier this month with the McHenry County State’s Attorney’s Office.
Kramer pleaded guilty to one count of possession of methamphetamine between 15 and 100 grams, a Class 1 felony, in exchange for his other charges being dismissed.
McHenry County Judge Mark Gerhardt approved the plea deal and sentenced Kramer to eight years in the Illinois Department of Corrections pursuant to the plea.
The sentence will be served at 50% in accordance with truth-in-sentencing guidelines and he will receive 508 days of credit for time served.
Kramer will receive an additional 44 days of credit for engaging in self-improvement or work assignments.
