(CRYSTAL LAKE) A northwest suburban man was arrested Friday after selling cocaine to undercover detectives three times during a two-month investigation, according to police.

Community members had complained for months about 42-year-old Jason L. Dunn peddling cocaine at several Crystal Lake bars, according to a statement from the McHenry County sheriff’s office.

During the two-month investigation, Dunn sold undercover detectives 3 grams of cocaine, with an estimated street value of $600, at three bars, sheriff’s police said.

The “buys” happened at Brink Street Bar and Grill at 85 Brink St.; William Street Tap at 80 N. Williams St.; and Suds-R-Us at 4616 Rte. 76, police said.

Dunn, of the 400 block of Berkshire Drive in Crystal Lake, faces nine felony charges of possession and delivery of a controlled substance, as well as a misdemeanor bond violation for an August 2014 arrest in Lake in the Hills.

He remains in the McHenry County Jail on a $200,000 bond and is next due in court on Saturday.
