Top 10 McHenry County fugitive arrested in Florida

WOODSTOCK – A man listed among the McHenry County Sheriff's Office top 10 fugitives and wanted in McHenry and Kane counties on drug charges has been apprehended in Florida.

Cecil T. Barnes, 31, was wanted in McHenry County for unlawful possession and delivery of a controlled substance and a failure to appear in court on traffic violations. He was wanted on a Carpentersville Police Department-issued warrant for manufacturing or delivering cocaine within a close proximity to a school.

The McHenry County warrant was issued in February 2012, when authorities learned that Barnes had fled and investigators were unable to locate him.

Barnes was tracked to his Destin, Fla., apartment, where Florida authorities apprehended him Monday without incident and booked him in the Okaloosa County Jail.

His McHenry County bond has been set at $75,000 and at $300,000 on the Kane County charges.
