Pioneer Local has reported the arrests of two men, one from Bellwood and one from Lombard, allegedly involved in a string of burglaries in nearby River Forest. Here’s an excerpt from that article:
“RIVER FOREST — Police investigating several recent burglaries arrested two men in Maywood after the car they were driving matched the description of a car used in the previous crimes.
Jeremy Seaton, 20, of Lombard, and Christopher Lukes, 22, of Bellwood are charged with residential burglary. Seaton is being held in lieu of $30,000 bond, Lukes in lieu of $20,000 bond. Both men have preliminary hearings June 20 at the Maybrook Courthouse.
Lukes was paroled in December 2011, from a previous residential burglary conviction, as well as possession of a stolen firearm.
Deputy Chief James O’Shea said police responded to the 500 block of River Oaks on June 11 after a witness reported seeing a person ‘walking through a yard while carrying a guitar.’ The man entered a green Buick parked on Lake Street.”
