Two men charged with Lake County home invasion
Two men are being held on $250,000 bond after tying up two girls and burglarizing a home in Lake County, according to a news release from the Lake County Sheriff's Office.
Dillon F. Wood, 36, of the 1100 block of Fair Oaks Avenue in Oak Park, and Kyle F. Kennedy, 44, of the 3000 block of Elim Avenue in Zion, were each charged last Thursday with one count of home invasion, one count of unlawful restraint and one count of residential burglary.
Police said they obtained a search warrant for Kennedy's residence following a July 28 home invasion involving two juvenile girls who were restrained by two masked men armed with handguns who broke through a window in the back of the girls' house. The men pointed guns at the girls while binding their hands and feet with zip ties, then removed a safe and left the home, according to police.
Kennedy and Wood both confessed to the home invasion and admitted to committing between 15 to 20 residential burglaries in Lake County, according to authorities.
Police also said that the men told them they have a $500 a day heroin and cocaine addiction.
Police said detectives recovered air soft guns that were used during the July 28 home invasion as well as numerous appliances at Kennedy's residence that had been stolen from new homes under construction.
Both men are scheduled to appear in court on Aug. 28.
