An unincorporated Montgomery man is still at large after allegedly fleeing a traffic stop before crashing his vehicle last September, the Kendall County Sheriff's Department said.

Christian Seidelman, 36, of the 30 block of Whitney Way in Boulder Hill, is wanted on several charges, including three felonies, after allegedly fleeing an attempted traffic stop near Route 126 and Route 71 on Sept. 7, 2015.

Seidelman “fled the area at a high rate of speed” before crashing near Route 126 and Route 47, then fleeing on foot, Kendall County Detective Bryan Harl said.

An apparently uninjured Seidelman fled after the single-vehicle crash, police said, and has yet to be taken into custody.

On March 15, Seidelman was charged with driving on a suspended license, aggravated fleeing and eluding, unlawful possession of registration, reckless driving and leaving the scene of a property damage accident. He has yet to be taken into custody, Harl said.

Seidelman had another brush with the law just three months after the September 2015 crash. He and a 46-year-old Aurora man were arrested on Dec. 17 in connection with an attempted robbery at a Batavia hardware store.

Seidelman and Lawrence R. Lynch were arrested on charges of attempted burglary and criminal trespassing after police said they were found with a ladder on the side of an Ace Hardware store, the Kane County Chronicle reported. Seidelman was also charged with possession of burglary tools and unlawful possession of drug paraphernalia.

Seidelman posted bond shortly after being arrested and booked into the Kane County jail, according to the Chronicle.

A year earlier, in December 2014, Seidelman and a different man were arrested in another alleged burglary, this time at the CD Liquors store in unincorporated Willowbrook.

Seidelman and Michael Null of Aurora allegedly pried open the front door to an adjoining storefront and broke through the drywall to enter the liquor store, according to a press release from DuPage County Sheriff John Zaruba. Both were charged with burglary and possession of burglary tools.

A DuPage County warrant for Seidelman’s arrest for failure to appear in court was issued on March 30, according to court records. His next scheduled court date in the liquor store burglary is scheduled for May 4.

Seidelman is scheduled to appear in court on April 28 in connection with the Batavia attempted burglary case, according to Kane County court records.

The Kendall County Sheriff’s Office is asking anyone with information on Seidelman’s whereabouts to contact the Kendall County Sheriff’s Office at (630) 553-5856. Callers who wish to remain anonymous can contact Kendall County Crimestoppers at (630) 553-5999.
