Two Chicago men and two teen girls were arrested following a burglary spree of at least 18 vehicles near Gurnee early Tuesday morning, police said.
Kevion A. Minor, 20, of the 400 block of East 90th Street in Chicago, and Jevon D. Anderson, 18, of the 11100 block of South Homewood Avenue in Chicago, were each charged with aggravated identity theft, identity theft and receiving lost/mislaid credit cards. Minor was also charged with a misdemeanor count of theft.
Lake County Sheriff Sgt. Christopher Covelli said that 18 vehicles were burglarized in the Grandwood Park area in Warren Township overnight between Monday and Tuesday.
Authorities learned the suspects were staying at the Rodeway Inn, 630 North Green Bay Road in Waukegan. Detectives located the suspect vehicle in the parking lot of the motel and began conducting surveillance.
Minor and Anderson were taken into custody Tuesday afternoon along with two teen girls, who are from Zion and Gurnee, Covelli said. Police recovered proceeds stolen during the burglary spree.
“Always remember to remove valuables from your vehicle, lock your car doors, and remove spare keys/key fobs. Report any suspicious activity by calling 911,” Sheriff Mark Curran urged citizens.
Charges are pending against the two juvenile suspects. Minor remains held in the Lake County Jail on a $25,000 bond and is scheduled to appear in court on November 5. Anderson remains held in the Lake County Jail on a $20,000 bond and is scheduled to appear in court on November 2.
Additional charges are possible as the investigation continues, Covelli said.
