A 52-year-old Wheeling woman who authorities say entered a home and requested beer was ordered held on $100,000 bond Wednesday, prosecutors said.
Lidia Zuradzka faces residential burglary charges after authorities say she entered a stranger's home on Monday. The female homeowner was upstairs when Zuradzka entered through an unlocked door, said Cook County Assistant State's Attorney David Shin. The homeowner came downstairs and discovered Zuradzka, a stranger, standing in the lving room holding a beer that had been on a table, Shin said.
When the homeowner asked Zuradzka what she was doing, Zuradzka responded, "I want beer," according to Shin.
Zuradzka fled after the woman screamed, authorities said.
Zuradzka has a 2013 conviction for residential burglary and a 2010 conviction for criminal trespass to a residence, Shin said. She also has a pending misdemeanor case involving criminal trespass to a residence.
She next appears in court on June 27.
