This week will be one residents of Hebron will remember.
This morning the Northwest Herald in its new tabloid format highlighted the Alden-Hebron School Board’s agreeing to buy a new 80-acre school site from former School Board member Daniel Walters, who is the father-in-law of School Board President Susan Walters.
Susan Walters told the NWH that she was out of the loop, that School Superintendent Debbie Ehlenburg handled negotiations.
Now a press release from the McHenry County Sheriff’s Department tells the story of the arrest of Hebron’s Mayor on
Hebron Village President Arrested on Drug Charges
Officers from the McHenry County Sheriff’s Office Narcotics Division and the U.S. Marshal’s Service Great Lakes Regional Task Force Tuesday served criminal warrants on and took into custody the President of the Village of Hebron at his home.
The charges stemmed from an incident in the early hours of March 17 when MCSO Patrol officers were dispatched to the residence of John G. Jacobson in the 12300 block of Jacob Avenue for an assist to rescue in the absence of the Hebron Police Department, which was not on duty at the time.
A female friend of Jacobson, later identified as Jeanna Rosing (age 27 of Lake Geneva), had called 911 to report that Jacobson was not breathing and beginning to turn blue.
Hebron Fire Protection District arrived on scene and took over efforts to revive Jacobson while deputies began investigating what occurred.
Rescue transported Jacobson to Mercy Harvard Hospital, where he was treated and later released.
While speaking with Rosing, sheriff’s deputies noticed drugs and drug paraphernalia in plain view.
A search warrant was then completed by members of the Narcotics Division and later signed by a judge.
The MCSO executed the warrant later that same day.
A search of the residence revealed less than one gram of cocaine, two crack pipes, chore boy, a shotgun and some ammunition.
Rosing was later transported to the McHenry County Correctional Facility for three unrelated outstanding warrants against her for retail theft.
The Sheriff’s Office worked with the McHenry County States Attorney’s Office and multiple charges and warrants were approved for Jacobson.
On March 22, 2016, the Sheriff’s Office served Jacobson with the arrest warrants and took him into custody.
Jacobson was then transported to McHenry County Correctional Facility.
