Dmarco Hill, 31, of Chicago.

A Chicago man with at least 23 prior felony convictions has been sentenced to seven years in prison for burglarizing a Jewel-Osco store in Algonquin and stealing over $4,000 in products.

Dmarco Hill, 31, of Chicago, was charged in June 2022 with burglary, retail theft and theft.

The Algonquin Police Department responded on May 18, 2022, to the Jewel Osco, 103 South Randall Road in Algonquin.

Officers met with loss prevention from the grocery store and learned a burglary had occurred, prosecutors said.

Security reported an unknown subject was seen on surveillance video entering a back room of the store and breaking into a liquor cabinet.

The subject filled a cart with merchandise before exiting the business, prosecutors said.

The value of the merchandise stolen was determined to be $4,445.10.

Prosecutors said Hill was identified as the suspect through fingerprint evidence.

Hill’s fingerprint was left on a bottle of liquor taken from the liquor cabinet, which was left behind at the scene.

Court records show Hill entered into a negotiated plea deal with the McHenry County State’s Attorney’s Office last week.

He pleaded guilty to one count of burglary, a Class 2 felony, and his other charges were dismissed.

McHenry County Judge Tiffany Davis sentenced Hill to seven years in the Illinois Department of Corrections last Tuesday.

Hill was also ordered to pay $4,445 in restitution to the business.

He will be required to serve the prison sentence at 50% in accordance with truth-in-sentencing guidelines.

State records show Hill has already been serving time in the Illinois Department of Corrections for other offenses in other counties.

He has served time in prison for 23 different felony convictions in Illinois since 2010. All of the convictions involve retail thefts and burglaries, except for one conviction, which was for escape.
