A man, who was out on bond for committing burglaries in Libertyville, has been arrested again after officers caught him burglarizing cars in Libertyville.

The Libertyville Police Department responded around 3:25 a.m. on March 21 to the 100 block of Newberry Avenue in Libertyville.

Homeowners called 911 after hearing car doors being slammed, according to a police report.
