Orlando Chapa could run but his hiding game left much to be desired Tuesday morning.
According to Lisle police, Chapa was found hiding in the bushes behind a home on the 24W600 block of Lakewood Drive Tuesday afternoon, about 45 minutes after police attempted to question him about his involvement in a nearby residential burglary.

Police say they responded to a burglary in progress on the 2800 block of Windsor Drive and met Chapa in the Green Trails Shopping Center parking lot.
When they approached Chapa, police say he eluded them as he ran north across Maple Avenue into the Steeple Run neighborhood. Local police departments were called in to create a perimeter in the area where he was seen running. Steeple Run Elementary School was also locked down for several minutes when police learned that a cutting tool had been used during the burglary.
At approximately 11:41 a.m., Lisle officers found Chapa hiding under several thick bushes in the backyard of a home on the 24W600 block of Lakewood.
Chapa is awaiting a bond hearing Wednesday morning on charges of residential burglary, criminal damage to property, criminal trespass to property and resisting or obstructing a peace officer.
