A North Chicago man was arrested Wednesday in connection with a home invasion last month in Gurnee.

On Jan. 23, Gurnee police responded to reports of a home invasion on the 1600 block of Belle Plaine Ave. Police said two or three intruders stole cash after displaying a handgun.

Police said they identified Xzemenize Boose, 19, of North Chicago as one of the suspects and issued a warrant for his arrest on charges of home invasion, armed robbery and residential burglary on Jan. 31. He was arrested in Arlington Heights by members of the Lake County sheriff's warrants team without incident Wednesday, police said.

Boose is being held in the Lake County jail on $750,000 bail, according to police. The charge of armed robbery with a firearm could carry a sentence of at least 15 years in prison after a conviction.

Police said they are still looking for additional suspects and ask anyone with information to call (847) 599- 7000.
