Lake County Sheriff’s Deputies and Detectives, on Wednesday January 8, 2020, arrested a Lake Barrington male suspect in connection with numerous burglaries.

Members of the Sheriff’s Warrants Team served an arrest warrant on Hunter Grabowski, 24, at his residence in the block of 500 Beacon Drive, Lake Barrington. Grabowski was wanted on a $50,000 failure to appear arrest warrant for theft. While serving the warrant, warrants deputies located property which was recently stolen in a nearby burglary.

Grabowski, who was the suspect in several area car burglaries, was transported to the Sheriff’s Office Criminal Investigations Division and sheriff’s detectives obtained a search warrant for Grabowski’s residence. While conducting the search warrant, sheriff’s detectives located over 100 items stolen during vehicle burglaries in Lake, McHenry, and Cook counties. Many of the items stolen included, Accessport products, which change factory settings in Engine Control Units (ECUs) in vehicles to allow higher performance vehicle settings.

The property of several victims who previously filed reports with their respective sheriff’s office and police departments was recovered at Grabowski’s residence.

The Lake County State’s Attorney’s Office approved the charges of two counts of burglary (one class 2 and one class 3 felony). Additional charges are pending.

Grabowski remains held in the Lake County Jail pending an initial court hearing this morning.

“Breaking into someone’s home or vehicle and stealing their hard-earned property is despicable behavior and a complete violation of their privacy. I am happy our detectives recovered a significant amount of property and they will eventually be able to reunite the valuables with their owners.”

— Sheriff John Idleburg
