After an investigation of more than four months, two McHenry, Ill. residents have been charged with the fire at a McHenry car dealership in April, police said.

Arrested were John Krawec, 43, and his girlfriend, Anna Julecki, 26, both of the 4300 block of North Richmond Road, said McHenry police detective John Birk. The fire occurred in the early morning hours of April 26 at the All Truck Stop Inc. car dealership, 3021 W. Route 120. It was determined to be arson by fire investigators from the McHenry
Police Department and the McHenry Township Fire Protection District.

Krawec, the owner of the All Truck Stop, was arrested last week and charged with arson, a Class 2 felony; residential arson, a Class 1 felony; conspiracy to commit arson, a Class 4 felony; insurance fraud, a Class 1 felony; and conspiracy to commit fraud, a Class 2 felony.

Birk said Julecki was charged with insurance fraud and conspiracy to commit fraud, both Class 2 felonies. The arrests came after an investigation by the McHenry police, which included assistance from McHenry Township Fire Protection District investigators and McHenry County sheriff’s police. Birk said the investigation is continuing and more arrests may be made.
