[ARCHIVED] Sheriff’s K9 Locates Armed Robbery Suspect

On August 18, 2023, at approximately 3:15 a.m., Lake County Sheriff’s Deputies were dispatched to the 24800 block of North Milwaukee Avenue, unincorporated Vernon Hills, for a report of an armed robbery.

Sheriff’s deputies arrived and determined the victim, a 40-year-old man, who lives at the property, was awoken when he heard his skid-steer being driven off the property.  He went outside to investigate and was confronted by the offender, Adam Frank, 41, of the 0-100 block of Evergreen Street, Lake Zurich.  

Frank displayed a firearm and told the victim that if he called the police, he’d shoot the victim.  Frank exited the skid-steer and fled on foot.  Sheriff’s K9 Drako responded along with Mundelein K9 Ranger.  The duo tracked Frank for approximately one mile and located him hiding in a wetland area.  He surrendered when the K9s confronted him.

Frank was found to be in possession of a semi-automatic pistol.

Upon reviewing the facts and circumstances of the case the Lake County State's Attorney's Office approved the following charges:

Armed Robbery (Class X Felony)

Theft over $500 (Class 3 Felony)

Aggravated Assault

Frank remains held in the Lake County Jail on $500,000.00 bail.  His next court date is August 25, 2023, at 9:00 a.m.

All defendants are presumed innocent unless proven guilty in a court of law.
