Palatine police charged Seawood with burglary after a witness saw him removing items from a car with a smashed rear window located in a parking lot in the 1700 block of Rand Road.

Seawood, who had been held in Cook County Jail on a $100,000 bond, received credit for 261 days in custody.

Seawood was convicted of burglary in 2008 and sentenced to seven years in prison. That followed a 2002 burglary conviction that earned him a 10-year sentence, prosecutors said. Burglary convictions in 1998, 1988 and 1986 earned him six-, three- and two-year terms, respectively. He was convicted in 2001, 1997 and 1994 for possession of a controlled substance. And prosecutors say he has retail theft convictions from 1997, 1994 and 1985.
