ANDRZEJ HRYNIEWICKI SENTENCED TO 16 YEARS IN THE DEPARTMENT OF CORRECTIONS FOR POSSESSION WITH INTENT TO DELIVER OVER 300 POUNDS OF CANNABIS
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
Patrick D. Kenneally, McHenry County State’s Attorney, announces that Andrzej Hryniewicki, 51, of Sycamore, Illinois, was sentenced to 16 years in the Illinois Department of Corrections for the offense of Possession of Over 5,000 grams of Cannabis with Intent to Deliver, a Class X Felony, before the Honorable Robert Wilbrandt.
Hryniewicki had previously pled guilty to the Class X Felony and was scheduled for sentencing on May 10, 2019. Hryniewicki failed to appear for sentencing, and a subsequent investigation revealed that the defendant had fled the country. Hryniewicki was sentenced in his absence today to 16 years in the Illinois Department of Corrections.
On November 18, 2014, federal authorities became aware of a suspicious aircraft traveling in the direction of McHenry County. Authorities maintained surveillance on the aircraft as it landed at Galt Airport in Wonder Lake, Illinois and pulled into a hanger. Hryniewicki was observed fleeing from the hangar. A search of the hanger yielded approximately 320 pounds of cannabis in the aircraft. Hryniewicki was apprehended returning to the hanger, attempting to retrieve the cannabis.
This case was investigated by members of Homeland Security Investigations and the McHenry County Sheriff’s Office. This case was prosecuted by Robert Ladd of the McHenry County State’s Attorney’s Office.
