Alleged Drug Dealer Critically Injured in Deal

Posted on in Criminal Defense

An alleged drug dealer was critically injured in suburban Woodstock, according to police.

John Kurchina, 22, called and scheduled a drug deal Sunday night at a home on the 600 block of Lawndale Avenue. He took an undisclosed amount of marijuana from the 26-year-old alleged drug dealer and ran before paying. The dealer chased Kurchina to a waiting vehicle. When Kurchina got into the passenger side of the car, the alleged dealer volleyed himself on to the hood of the vehicle. 

The driver was 21-year-old Hanna Schacht of Woodstock. She took off with the dealer holding on and then decided to slam on the brakes which caused the man to projectile onto the pavement. The pair then sped away from the scene. There were multiple witnesses that saw the entire occurrence and assisted the police with descriptions of the suspects as well as the vehicle.

The alleged dealer struck his head on the concrete and was found in the 600 block of Lawndale Avenue. He still remains in Advocate Condell Medical Center in Libertyville in critical condition after being transferred from Centegra Memorial Medical Center in Woodstock.

Hanna Schacht was charged with one count of felony theft from a person as well as on count of felony failure to report an accident involving personal injury. She is being detained in the McHenry County Adult Correctional Facility in lieu of a $25,000.00 bond. Kurchina was charged with one count of felony theft from a person. He was released from custody after posting bail of $2000.00.

Police report that if the alleged drug dealer survives the incident, he may find himself facing drug charges.
