One of McHenry County's 10 most wanted fugitives has been captured, according to the sheriff's office.

Kostas Lymberopoulus, 25, of the 1400 block of Cordgrass Trail in Woodstock, was arrested at 3 p.m. Friday at Spring Hill Mall in West Dundee, the McHenry County Sheriff's Department said in a news release. The department had been on the lookout for Lymberopoulus since March 8, when investigators got a warrant for his arrest on charges of delivering a controlled substance, a violation of his probation.

Sheriff's officials placed Lymberopoulus on the most wanted list after hearing he had fled the area in March, the department said. Lymberopoulus was taken Friday to the West Dundee Police Department, where he was booked and processed based on drug-related crimes discovered during the arrest. He was then turned over to McHenry County and taken to the correctional facility, where he remains, according to the sheriff's office.

"It is through the cooperative efforts of the community and local police agencies that our Top 10 List is successful," said Undersheriff Andrew Zinke in the news release. "We encourage the public to check our website often for updates and new additions."

Bond has not been set for the felony drug offenses in McHenry County. Lymberopoulus is responsible for a $10,000 Kane County bond for theft charges, according to the news release.
