Five members of a motorcycle club involved in a November bar fight were arrested Thursday morning following a two-month investigation, according to the McHenry County sheriff's department.
The arrests were a direct result of a fight involving several patrons Nov. 30 at the Lizard Lounge near Wonder Lake, officials said.
Along with the arrests, five search warrants were executed that resulted in the seizure of five handguns, five rifles, ammunition, brass knuckles, switch blades, a blackjack sap, 7.7 grams of cannabis, 1 gram of cocaine and various drug paraphernalia, police said.
According to the sheriff's department, those arrested include Robert Bellmore, 46, of the 25000 block of Lakeshore Drive in Ingleside; Michael Blumer, 33, of the 5200 block of Mann Drive in Ringwood; Jonathan Drecoll, 31, of the 400 block of Honeysuckle Avenue in Island Lake; Kathleen McKevitt, 37, of the 5300 block of Wainwright Drive in Wonder Lake; and Luciano Flores, 48, of the 6100 block of Richmond Road in Ringwood. A warrant also was issued for the arrest of Michael Krewer, 31, of the 2500 block of Thoroughbred Trail in Woodstock. Bellmore, Blumer and Drecoll each were charged with one count of aggravated battery and one count of mob action. Bail was set at $25,000 for all three men.
McKevitt and Flores were charged with those counts, along with unlawful possession of a controlled substance, two counts of unlawful use of weapons and unlawful possession of drug paraphernalia.
