CL man arrested while trying to flee by train

WOODSTOCK – A Crystal Lake man has been arrested for allegedly violating conditions of his probation, according to the McHenry County Sheriff’s Office.

Deonte J. Johnson-Jones, 40, was charged Monday with a felony count of obstructing justice. A petition to revoke his warrant for probation violations also was issued. He was being held Monday night on $35,000 bond at the McHenry County Jail.

Deputies on Wednesday received information from McHenry County Court Services/Probation that Johnson-Jones was wanted for violating conditions of his probation, according to a news release. He was attempting to flee to Chicago via train in downtown Crystal Lake when police found him.

Johnson-Jones was identified via photos and other identifying marks, and when approached by police, provided them with a false name, according to the release. He was transported to the McHenry County Jail and identified through fingerprinting.
