Daniel O’Shea, 53, of Bellwood

A law enforcement task force arrested a Cook County man after witnessing him commit multiple car burglaries in Lake County, prosecutors said.

Daniel O’Shea, 53, of Bellwood, was charged with burglary, possessing burglary tools, theft, identity theft and unlawful possession of a credit or debit card.

Lake County Assistant State’s Attorney Tyler Dyson said O’Shea was arrested on November 18.

A law enforcement task force had been following O’Shea because he was suspected of committing multiple burglaries to vehicles.

O’Shea was observed by the task force breaking into two vehicles as they followed him, Dyson said during a bond hearing.

Dyson said O’Shea used one of the burglary victim’s credit cards at a Shell gas station. Officers arrested him at the gas station.

O’Shea was found with a metal punch tool that is used to break windows.

Lake County Judge Patricia Cornell set O’Shea’s bond at $250,000.

Cornell said the man also has an active warrant out of Cook County for burglary.

He remains held in the Lake County Jail and would need to post $25,000 cash in order to be released.

A preliminary hearing is scheduled for December 15.
