A man was charged with criminal trespass after K-9 Dax and his handler tracked him down at a home in north suburban unincorporated Antioch.

At 2:00 a.m. Sunday, deputies responded to a call of a suspicious person in the 25900 block of West Hermann Avenue, according to a statement from the Lake County sheriff’s office. The caller said a man was outside her home pounding on the garage door, yelling in the backyard and then walked away.

Responding deputies heard a male voice screaming in the distance, according to the sheriff’s office. K-9 Dax and his handler Deputy John Forlenza got to the home and traced a scent through several yards before finding a man near the front door of a home on the 2600 block of Grass Lake Road.
