If he violates probation, which runs through September 2016 and includes drug tests, he could be resentenced to up to seven years in prison.

Elgin police arrested Ortiz and another teen in late August, saying they were working together and randomly targeting vehicles.

A co-defendant, Deondre J. Nance, 18, of the 300 block of Billing Street, Elgin, is accused of stealing an ATV from a garage in the 200 block of Orchard Street in the early morning hours of Aug. 22 and then getting arrested later in the day riding it though the neighborhood from which it was reported stolen.

Nance is due in court Sept. 19 and was being held on $7,000 bail.

He faces anywhere from probation to seven years in prison on the burglary charges if found guilty.

At the time of his arrest Nance was out on bond after being charged with felony criminal damage to property in Elgin in July, according to court records.
