CRYSTAL LAKE – A Crystal Lake man was charged Tuesday after a probation officer found evidence that he tampered with his drug test, the McHenry County Sheriff's Office announced.

Ayrton G. Capetillo, 19, was charged with the defrauding of a drug screening test, a Class 4 felony. He was released from the McHenry County Jail on Wednesday after posting $1,000 bail.

McHenry County Probation and Court Services contacted sheriff investigators Tuesday when a probation officer discovered the evidence inside a bathroom after Capetillo's drug screening, the sheriff's office said.

Capetillo is due in court Friday.
