During a traffic check in Fox Lake on Monday morning, three suspects who had fled from a stolen automobile and were hiding were found by Lake County Sheriff’s Canine Dax. A deputy sheriff was on patrol at roughly 2:40 on Monday morning, according to Deputy Chief Christopher Covelli of the Lake County Sheriff’s Office.
A 2012 Jeep SUV that had been reported stolen from Zion was spotted by the deputy. The stolen Jeep was pulled over by sheriff’s deputies at Washington Street and Rollins Road in Fox Lake. Four people got out of the car, including the driver who kept it in drive, according to Covelli.

The deputy who conducted the traffic stop’s squad car was hit by the Jeep as it rolled back into it. In order to help in the search for the culprits, sheriff’s deputies set up a sizable perimeter and called in Deputy Forlenza and Canine Dax. Three of the four individuals were found by Dax, according to Covelli, hiding in a shed on the 0–100 block of Highview Road in Fox Lake.
Officers detained the three and took them into custody. These three are thought to be travelers. According to Covelli, sheriff’s deputies think they have located the driver. They will apply for an arrest warrant in the case if they are certain that the suspect was the driver, according to Covelli.
