Motorcycle gang members arrested in bar fight

WONDER LAKE – A bar fight in November led to the arrest Thursday of six members of the Outlaws motorcycle club, the McHenry County Sheriff’s Office said.

The six showed up at Lizard Lounge, 5506 E. Wonder Lake Road, on Nov. 30, looking for a specific person, and gang members assaulted several patrons before leaving the bar, according to a news release.

The six arrested were identified as Robert J. Bellmore, 46, of 25540 Lakeshore Drive, Ingleside; Michael J. Blumer, 33, of 5211 Mann Drive, Ringwood; Jonathan E. Drecoll, 31, of 405 Honeysuckle Ave., Island Lake; Kathleen M. McKevitt, 37, of 6105 N. Richmond Road, Ringwood; and Luciano Flores, 48, of 6105 N. Richmond Road, Ringwood.

Each was charged with aggravated battery, a Class 3 felony, and mob action, a Class 4 felony.

Additionally, McKevitt was charged with two counts of possession of a controlled substance, two counts of unlawful use of weapons, possession of drug paraphernalia, and possession of ammunition without a firearm owner’s identification card. Flores also was charged with possession of a controlled substance, two counts of unlawful use of weapons, possession of drug paraphernalia, and possession of marijuana.

In all, police seized five handguns, five rifles, ammunition, brass knuckles, switch blades, a black jack “sap,” 7.7 grams of marijuana, 1 gram of cocaine and drug paraphernalia, the release said.

Authorities also have obtained an arrest warrant for Michael R. Krewer, 31, of 9914 Lucas Road, Woodstock.

“Anybody involved with organized crime in McHenry County, we’re going to seek them out and charge them with everything we can,” said Undersheriff Andrew Zinke. The fight remains under investigation and more charges are possible, authorities said.

The person targeted at the bar suffered serious injuries in the fight, but is doing OK, Zinke said.
