Trio Nabbed for Breaking into Cars, Police Say

Neighbors grabbed one of the suspects before he could flee, and he identified the two others who helped carry out the alleged burglaries, Joliet police said.

Three Joliet men who allegedly stole loose change, CDs, cigarettes and other small items from parked cars face felony charges of burglary from a motor vehicle, Joliet police said.

A resident in the 1600 block of Peridot spotted the men going through a car at about 2:40 a.m. Monday and alerted others neighbors, who helped grab Kevin T. Schelke, 18, of 1213 Quail Drive, before he was able to flee, Cmdr. Al Roechner said.

When in police custody, Schelke identified his accomplices as Jonathan J. Medina, 23, also of 1213 Quail Drive, and Ryan A. Plant, 19, of 4701 Mallard Lane, Roechner said. All three were identified by residents.

Roechner said the items taken were relatively small, and included CDs and DVDs, loose change and a change purse and Marlboro cigarettes. The only item of any great value was a camcorder.

The three men were transported to Kendall County jail because the crime occurred in the Kendall portion of Joliet.

A felony? Maybe they'll serve more time than John Corzine-oh wait- these guys aren't fund raisers for Obama. God help this corrupt country-we're going to need it.
