The last of an Elk Grove Village burglary ring -- whose members authorities say committed more than 60 break-ins -- pleaded guilty earlier this month.
In exchange for Ryan J. Bloom's guilty plea to residential burglary, a Cook County judge sentenced the 23-year-old to 120 days in jail and ordered him to pay restitution as well as $399 in fines.

Authorities say Bloom, Richard J. McCann, 34. and Lizette M. Norman, 34, all of the 400 block of Perry Drive, burglarized unlocked vehicles and homes under renovation in Mount Prospect and other suburbs during 2012.
The trio stole thousands of dollars worth of merchandise, which they quickly resold either on the street or in pawn shops to make money to fund drug habits, said Mount Prospect Police Deputy Chief Tim Janowick after the trio's arrest last October.
In January, Cook County Judge Kay Hanlon sentenced McCann to 10 years in prison and Norman to four years in prison.
