WOODSTOCK – One of McHenry County’s top 10 fugitives was arrested Thursday in Hebron, authorities said.
Justin E. Dean, 25, of Wonder Lake was wanted for a charge of possession of a controlled substance after police said he had less than 15 grams of oxycodone. He also had pending charges of driving under the influence of alcohol, possession of drug paraphernalia and citations for improper lane use and operating an uninsured motor vehicle.
This was not Dean’s first time on the top 10 fugitives list. He was No. 7 on the list in 2012, when he was wanted for possession of a stolen firearm, sale of a stolen firearm, possession of a handgun and possession of a firearm with an expired firearm owner’s identification card, according to court records.
McHenry County Sheriff’s Lt. James Wagner said factors considered when deciding who makes the top 10 list include:
• The defendant must have an outstanding warrant for a felony crime.
• The crime usually involves some sort of violence, drugs, guns or a sex offense.
• The apprehension unit or other law enforcement agencies tried to serve a warrant and were unsuccessful.
• The individual has a McHenry County connection.
• He or she might be a suspect in an ongoing investigation.
• The individual usually is a repeat offender or has multiple warrants out for his or her arrest.
• Authorities believe the public can help them find that person.
Dean remained in McHenry County Jail custody as of Friday afternoon on $30,000 bond, according to jail records. He is expected to appear in court Monday.
