Police work leads to the arrest of five on burglary charges


On Tuesday, June 11, at 7:51PM, the Naperville Police Department responded to the Ulta Beauty located in the 2700 block of Aurora Ave. in reference to a retail theft that had just occurred. Arriving officers obtained the alleged suspect’s descriptions along with a description of the involved vehicle and provided that information to other officers in the City.

A short time later the suspect vehicle was spotted traveling eastbound on Ogden Avenue. Officers initiated a traffic stop on the vehicle. During the course of their investigation while on the traffic stop, officers allegedly located evidence of the crime and established probable cause to arrest all five vehicle occupants.

After consulting with the DuPage County State’s Attorney’s office, Burglary charges, a class 2 felony, were approved for all five alleged offenders out of Chicago.

“This was excellent work by the initial responding patrol officers who were able to immediately disseminate the suspect vehicle information, which in turn allowed our other patrol officers to locate and apprehend these subjects,” said Naperville Police Chief Jason Arres.

The Naperville Police wish to remind the public and the news media that a charge is merely an accusation, and a defendant is presumed innocent unless proven guilty.
