[ARCHIVED] Sexual Offender, and Drug Induced Homicide Offender Apprehended by Sheriff’s Warrants Team


On March 19, 2019, the Lake County Sheriff’s Office Warrants Team in conjunction with the U.S. Marshals Service – Great Lakes Regional Fugitive Task Force (USMS-GLRFTF), apprehended two wanted fugitives.  

Andrew C. Wikoff, 38, of the 200 block of Wisconsin Avenue, Waukegan, was arrested in the 39000 block of North Sheridan Road, Beach Park.  Wikoff was wanted on a failure to appear arrest warrant for a 2015 drug induced homicide ($750,000.00 bail).  Wikoff was required to wear an ankle-monitor tracking device, which he cut off his ankle last month.  After he cut the device and violated the conditions of bail, an additional warrant was issued for escape ($500,000.00 bail).  Members of the Sheriff’s Warrants Team developed information regarding Wikoff’s whereabouts and arrested him without incident at a residence in Beach Park.

Wikoff remains held on $750,000.00 bail and is next due in court on April 9, 2019, at 1:30PM in courtroom T110.

Daniel P. Pemrick, 63, a convicted sexual offender, previously of the 36300 block of Route 41, Unincorporated Gurnee, had an active arrest warrant ($250,000.00 bail) for failure to register as a sexual offender, after he moved without notifying authorities.  An investigation led the Warrants Team to a residence in the 35600 block of North Louise Place, Ingleside, where they located Pemrick.  He was arrested without incident, but found to be living in a home with a nine-year-old child.  

In addition to the warrant, Pemrick was charged with another count of failure to register as a sexual offender (class 2 felony), for failing to disclose he was living with a child under the age of 18.  

Pemrick remains held pending an initial hearing this morning in courtroom T110.

Sheriff Idleburg reminds the community all defendants are presumed innocent unless proven guilty in a court of law.
