The Grayslake Police Department has reported that one of the suspects in Friday's home invasion in the College Trail subdivision has been charged.

Richard A. Kellogg, 18, of 1413 Catalpa St., Waukegan, was charged Sept. 30 with Armed Robbery, Unlawful Restraint and Residential Burglary.

Kellogg has been remanded to the Lake County Jail on $750,000 bond.

Grayslake Police said two other suspects that are in custody were not charged by the Lake County States’ Attorney at this time, pending further investigation.
The Grayslake Police Department will be obtaining an arrest warrant for the fourth suspect involved in this case, who is not yet in custody.

Home Invasion

The home invasion occurred shortly before 11 p.m. Friday, Sept. 28, in the 1000 block of Manchester Circle, in Grayslake's College Trail subdivision.

Police said the crime was not random and that the suspects gained entrance to the home through an unlocked door. No injuries were reported.

The Grayslake Patch broke the story, which resulted in a flurry of activity on Patch's Facebook and Twitter as residents reported seeing police cars, officers with guns drawn, and hearing a helicopter and sirens.

According to the Grayslake Police Department, three suspects entered the home at 10:38 p.m. Sept. 28. The victims, who were not injured, were robbed by two male suspects with handguns and one with a bat. Suspect descriptions were obtained by dispatchers and relayed to responding police units.

Responding units observed a light colored 2002 Olds Bravada leaving the area at a high rate of speed with the described suspects inside. Officers attempted to stop the vehicle, but it fled south on Atkinson Road, then attempted to turn east on Brae Loch Road, according to police.

The driver lost control and the vehicle struck an electric pole. The suspects exited the vehicle and fled on foot in the area.

According to dispatch reports, a helicopter and thermal imaging cameras were requested in the investigation. Police dogs were also used.

Three of the four suspects were located after a 5-hour search and taken into custody.

The Grayslake Police Department reminds citizens to be aware of their surroundings and fight crime with simple remedies such as locking house and car doors as well as properly lighting your home at night. Citizens must be vigilant in the reporting of any suspicious activity to police by calling 911.
