On May 27, 2021, the McHenry County Sheriff’s Office was called to Wonder Foods, located in the 7500 block of Hancock Drive, Wonder Lake, for a report of a burglary.

The on-scene investigation revealed that forced entry occurred into the business and a surveillance video showed a suspect taking lottery tickets and a donation jar.

Additional surveillance video showed that a previous theft had also occurred there on May 18, 2021, where a similar suspect took a donation jar.

Detectives obtained additional surveillance video from a gas station where the lottery tickets were redeemed and a potential suspect was observed.

On June 5, 2021, a subject forced entry into Dusty’s Pizza located in the 7600 block of Howe Road, Wonder Lake.

On June 8, 2021, a suspect burglarized the Subway located in the 7400 block of Hancock Drive, Wonder Lake.

During the course of the investigation, Kalisz was identified as the suspect.

Kalisz was arrested without incident and charged with the burglaries and thefts.

After Kalisz’s arrest, he was interviewed by the McHenry City Police Department who charged him with four additional counts of burglary which occurred at Kim and Patty’s Café in McHenry.

Kalisz was taken to the McHenry County Adult Correctional Facility where he is being held on a $50,000 bond.

  1. Kim and Patty’s in McHenry?

    Thats right down the street from Salerno’s/Nicolino’s that got broken into and money stolen from not all that long ago.

    Ask him about that one too.

  2. $50,000 bail?

    Black armed robbers only get $5000!

    Why the differential between nonviolent and violent crimes?

    PS: I’m not defending the creep Kalisz. (Keep his bail at $50k, but make violent armed muggers pay double.)

  3. Isn’t he one of Terry Kappel’s associates?
