CALUMET TOWNSHIP | A Lake County K-9 captured a suspect wanted on multiple warrants Wednesday after a chase in Calumet Township.

U.S. marshals and Lake County police were attempting to serve multiple warrants about 9 a.m. on Wayne Urbaszewski, 34, of the 4300 block of Taft St., when he fled, Lake County Sheriff's Department spokeswoman Patti Van Til said.

Urbaszewski was wanted on warrants alleging failure to appear, two countsĀ of incest, three counts of child molesting, criminal deviate conduct, two counts of confinement and two counts of intimidation, Van Til said.

Officers set up a perimeter between 41st and 45th avenues and Cleveland and Chase streets and used both the Lake County Sheriff's Department helicopter and K-9 units to try to locate Urbaszewski.

Nearby Lake Ridge Middle School officials were informed of the search, but the school was not placed on lockdown, Van Til said.

Lake County Sgt. Scott Bock's K-9 partner, Gunner, caught Urbaszewski in 5 feet of water near West 42nd Court and Rutledge Street. The dog detained Urbaszewski as Bock took him into custody.

Police said Urbaszewski resisted arrest.

Urbaszewski was taken to the Methodist Hospitals Southlake Campus for treatment of dog bites before being booked into the Lake County Jail, Van Til said.

Additional charges of resisting law enforcement by fleeing and battery on law enforcement are pending in the Wednesday morning chase, Van Til said.
