A Melrose Park man was caught on video breaking into an Elmhurst home, police said Tuesday.
Rocco Passarella, 52, was charged with residential burglary after officers responded to the 400 block of East South Street about 8:30 a.m. Monday.
Police said security footage from a camera inside the victim's home showed Passarella force open a back door.
Passarella, who had been staying on the same block with another resident, remained jailed Tuesday and would have to post a $10,000 bond to be released.
Police said they are investigating whether he was involved in other burglaries in Elmhurst.
