Four people have been arrested in connection with burglaries of houses in Batavia that happened between Aug. 5 and Wednesday.
Terrell Jones-Bradley, 21, of the 1200 block of E. Wilson Street, was charged with two counts of residential burglary, one count of attempted residential burglary and two counts of unlawful use of a credit card, according to a police report.
Gregory Jordan Jr., 26, of the 1300 block of E. Wilson, was charged with two counts of unlawful use of a credit card, police said.
Curtis A. Hobbs, 23, of the 0-99 block of North Broadway, Aurora, was charged with two counts of unlawful use of a credit card, police said.
Sharonda Y. Moore, 22, of the 1200 block of E. Wilson, was charged with one count of possession of stolen property, police said.
According to a news release from the Batavia Police Department, all will be held until they appear in Kane County bond court Friday morning. All the charges are felonies.
The burglaries occurred on Woodland Hills Road and Wagner Road, in the southeast side of the city. Police reported the burglaries Wednesday, saying small electronic items such as smartphones had been taken. The burglaries occurred at night, while the residents were home. Police believe entry was made through open garage doors and possibly through an unlocked window.
According to Kane County court records, Hobbs pleaded guilty in 2011 to felony burglary in a 2011 Aurora case, and was sentenced to 48 months of probation and 180 days in jail. There will be a hearing Aug. 22 on a charge that he has violated his probation. He also pleaded guilty earlier this year to misdemeanor charges of violating an order of protection.
Another burglary was reported Aug. 14 on nearby Thrun Drive, but police have not said if that was related to the others.
