Elgin teens charged in Little League building burglary

By Tara García Mathewson

Elgin police stopped four teenagers driving a vehicle with its lights off early Tuesday morning and ended up arresting three of them in connection with a burglary of the Elgin National Little League Building, police said.

Department spokeswoman Sue Olafson said David Oshana, 18, of the 1000 block of Hobblebush Drive in Elgin, and three Elgin juveniles were stopped at about 3:15 a.m. Tuesday near Ironwood Drive and Stonebridge Court.

The officer saw a lock box and some candy in the back of the car and questioned the teens, Olafson said. At that point, police were unaware of any burglary of the Little League building, which is at 709 Summit St. in Elgin.

One of the teens in the car was released after the traffic stop but Oshana and a 15-year-old were arrested and later charged with burglary.

Olafson said the box was locked and the amount of money inside was, therefore, unknown.

A 17-year-old was arrested and charged with possession of stolen property as well as damage to property because of a broken window at the Little League building, Olafson said.

The two juveniles will appear in juvenile court. Oshana will appear in Cook County bond court Wednesday.
