‘Heavy’ police presence in Wonder Lake as McHenry County Sheriff’s Office serves warrant

The McHenry County Sheriff’s Office on Friday asked residents to avoid the intersection of Chippewa Drive and East Wonder Lake Road in Wonder Lake amid “heavy police activity.”

The sheriff’s office made the announcement on X, the platform formerly known as Twitter, saying, “There is no public safety threat.”

The sheriff’s office confirmed that a search warrant was being served in the area.

The serving of an unrelated search warrant also prompted a large police presence, including a SWAT team, in McHenry earlier this week. In that case, authorities later announced charges against two men arrested at the home.

It was unclear in the Wonder Lake case Friday whether the execution of the search warrant ended with any arrests.
