A 74-year-old Elgin man was caught slipping a sleeping pill into the drink of an undercover police officer who was posing as a caregiver at his home, according to Elgin police.

The Elgin Police Department sent the undercover officer to the home of Raymond Kvacik on the 100 block of South State Street after two reports of Kvacik placing sleeping pills in two home health care workers' fruit drinks, according to police.

In one case, Kvacik inappropriately touched one of the caregivers after she unwittingly ingested a sleeping pill, according to court documents. Kvacik was charged with two counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse and three counts of unlawful delivery of a controlled substance.

He appeared in bond court Wednesday, and his bail was set at $150,000. His next court appearance is March 1.

Anyone with more information is asked to call Elgin detectives at (847) 289-2619.
