A Chicago man has been charged with forcing entry to Kohl’s in Crystal Lake and allegedly stealing $80,000 worth of jewelry during a burglary in December.

The Crystal Lake Police Department responded around 2 a.m. on December 30 to Kohl’s, 5420 Northwest Highway in Crystal Lake.

Crystal Lake Deputy Police Chief Richard Neumann said dispatchers were initially notified of an alarm at the business.

Officers arrived on the scene approximately a minute later.

They found the front glass of the business was broken out and that an offender had entered the business, Neumann said.

The suspect stole a “significant amount of jewelry,” Neumann added.

A criminal complaint said the proceeds stolen were worth approximately $80,000.

Evidence technicians processed the scene while detectives began their investigation into the incident.

John M. Signorile, 48, of Chicago, was identified as a suspect and further analysis of forensic evidence was conducted, Neumann said.

The case was reviewed with the McHenry County State’s Attorney’s Office, which charged Signorile with burglary, theft over $10,000 and criminal damage to property.

An arrest warrant was obtained on Monday for Signorile.

Signorile was already being held in the Cook County Jail on similar charges in other jurisdictions when the McHenry County warrant was obtained.

He is being held without bond, jail records show.
