Two Chicago men have been arrested and charged after they reportedly used a stolen vehicle as a getaway car while they burglarized multiple cars in Lincolnshire, police said.
On Monday at around 11:45 p.m., the Lincolnshire Police Department responded to Elmwood Lane and Cedar Lane in Lincolnshire after someone reported a suspicious person. When police arrived they saw Samuel J. Clavette, 19, of the 6500 block of Seeley Avenue in Chicago, walking in the road and stopped him.
Authorities said that it was determined Clavette committed three vehicle burglaries in Lincolnshire. He was also found in possession of a stun gun and did not have a valid FOID card.
While police were speaking with Clavette, they saw a vehicle driving slowly toward their direction. Police stopped the car and determined that the vehicle was involved in the incident. Initially officers had a difficult time identifying the driver because he kept providing false information to them.
The driver of the vehicle was eventually identified as Shane A. Diehl-Bremer, 20, of the 1300 block of Kedzie Avenue in Chicago. A short time later, police were informed that the vehicle was stolen from a home in northwest suburban Norridge. Both Clavette and Diehl-Bremer were arrested.
Clavette was charged with three counts of burglary to motor vehicle (class 2 felonies), possession of a stolen motor vehicle (class 2 felony), and unlawful use of a weapon (class A misdemeanor). Clavette was transported to the Lake County Jail where he remains held on a $10,000 bond. He’s scheduled to appear at the Lake County Courthouse in Waukegan on October 20.
Diehl-Bremer was arrested and charged with criminal trespass to motor vehicle (class A misdemeanor) and obstructing identification (class A misdemeanor). Diehl-Bremer was released and is scheduled to appear at the Lake County Courthouse in Waukegan on November 17.
