3 wanted in connection with Woodstock home invasion

A home invasion in Woodstock sent one person to the hospital Sunday with injuries that were not life-threatening, officials said.

Woodstock police are investigating the situation, which occurred in the 1900 block of Sheila Street.

One person was taken to Northwestern Medicine Hospital - Woodstock to be treated for injuries, Woodstock Fire Capt. Brendan Parker said.

Andrea Varnado, Donley Carey and Jimmy D. Carey are charged with entering a home and harming three people who were present at the time, according to criminal complaints filed in McHenry County court.

Warrants for Varnado, 36, and Donley Carey, 34, both of the 1700 block of Havens Drive, and Jimmy D. Carey, 43, of Racine, Wisconsin, were issued Sunday, court records show.

Each is charged with home invasion and mob action. The most serious charge, home invasion, typically is punishable by as many as 30 years in prison.

Varnado is wanted on a $100,000 warrant.

Donley Carey and Jimmy Carey face additional battery charges. They’re accused of punching and kicking the alleged victims multiple times, according to two separate criminal complaints.

One of the alleged victims was a 17-year-old girl, according to the complaints.

The bond amounts on the men’s warrants have been set at $200,000 for Donley Carey and $150,000 for Jimmy Carey, court records show.

Woodstock Police Chief John Lieb declined to comment while the investigation is ongoing.

It’s unclear whether Varnado and the Carey men knew the alleged victims, whose conditions were not immediately available.
