Smith had broken into the home of the parents of his ex-wife and threatened her and their child. On Saturday aftemoon around 3:30 Smith had stopped at the Carl Runge home and wanted to see his child. They did not let him in, as there is a court order which only permits him to call at the Runge home on Saturday between 10:30 nad 11:00 a,m. with his Mother accompanying him. The Runges did n(^ admit his as he had not observed the correct time for visiting and his Mother was not with him. Huntley's police chief Richard Nelson stated that Smith then went downtown to one of Hunt¬ ley's local taverns and had sever¬ al drinks with four of his friends. Shortly before 6 p.m. he and his friends went back to the Runge residence and parked their car. Smith got out and again sought admittance, which was denied. He then broke the storm door, kicked in the panel of the front door and damaged the door jamb. When he could'not gain admittance be then threatened to "get" his ex-wife and their child. When informed that the police had been called. Smith then went to the Runge automobile and ransacked it, toss¬ ing things onto the yard, then he drove off with his friends turning west onto the Huntley-Marengo blacktop. Himtley police had alerted the Sheriffs police. The state police were also alerted, and someone turned in a report to the sheriff's office at about that time that five men were seen in Huntley with guns. The sheriff's police combed the area looking for the '68 Chevrolet with the license number supplied by Chief Nelson. Deputy Dennis Lantis of the sheriffs patrol spot¬ ted the car headed back toward Huntley and alerted the other units participating in the man¬ hunt All vmits converged on the Smith automobile in the Bonnie Brae area. The police participat¬ ing covered the car with shotguns, as a weapons report had been made. A search was made but no weapons were found. The sheriffs men were com¬ mended by the Huntley police for their assistance in apprehending Smith, who was taken to Mc¬ Henry County Jail, where a com¬ plaint was signed against him. Sgt. Sam Auseas in Woodstock drew up the complaint. Judge Parker set bond and the case will come up for hearing in the Court House Annex on April 4, at 10 a.m. It was reported that Smith was released on Sunday, after posting a $460.00 cash bond. Smith, according to Mr. Nelaon, has previously been arrested and convicted of a similar charge and imprisoned in Vandalia. Later during his confinement he was trarferred to the maximum secur¬ ity institution at Menard.
