On August 30, 2018, at approximately 3:20AM, a Lake County Sheriff’s Deputy in the area of North Cremona Avenue and West Verona Avenue, Lake Villa Township, observed what appeared to be a drug transaction between a driver of a vehicle and a pedestrian.
The Sheriff’s Deputy activated his squad car emergency lights and attempted to stop both the vehicle and the pedestrian. The pedestrian retreated inside a residence in the 37400 block of North Cremona Avenue and the driver fled in the vehicle. As the driver of the vehicle (identified as Reginald D. Satchell, 33, of the 400 block of Hickory Street, Waukegan) fled, he struck a curb and his vehicle became inoperable. Satchell then fled on foot from the Sheriff’s Deputy.
The Sheriff’s Deputy apprehended Satchell after a brief foot chase. A Lake County Sheriff’s Canine Team responded and tracked the path Satchell ran. K9 Dax located a package containing over 30 grams of cocaine.
Satchell was transported to the Lake County Jail and charged with:
Unlawful Possession of a Controlled Substance (Class X Felony)
Aggravated Fleeing and Eluding (Class 4 Felony)
Resisting a Peace Officer (Class A Misdemeanor)
Satchell remains held in the Lake County Jail pending an initial court hearing.
Sheriff Curran reminds the public the defendant is presumed innocent unless proven guilty in a court of law.
