Illegal Burning Complaint In Mercer County Leads To Outstanding Warrant Arrest & $1-Million Bond

An illegal burning complaint in Mercer County leads to the arrest of a man on two Kane County, Illinois warrants with bond set at $1,000,000.  20 year old John Mikrut was taken into custody yesterday at 636 310th Street. Deputies were told a neighbor burned off field grass when the fire came onto their property and damaged some fence posts.  A check of names led to the identification of Mikrut and the outstanding warrants.  After being arrested and cuffed, he fled from police and was caught moments later and is now in custody at the Mercer County Jail.
