A Lisle man is being held on $100,000 bond, charged with a series of crimes last month on Meadow Lane that netted him a tube of lip balm and a half-empty prescription bottle of pills,, authorities said.
John Franck, 23, of Dumoulin Ave., is charged with burglary to a motor vehicle, attempted residential burglary and criminal damage to property.

Officials said Franck was charged Tuesday evening after the investigation of evidence left at the scene of one of the burglaries made him a suspect.
Franck had been in custody at the DuPage County jail since the morning of the arrest on separate charges, allowing Lisle time to analyze the evidence before linking it to Franck, authorities said.
According to police records, a "highly intoxicated" Franck is accused of breaking into a 2009 Hyundai Santa Fe at 2 a.m. May 1 on the 5300 block of Meadow Lane. A short time later, Franck is accused of breaking a bedroom window screen as he attempted to burglarize a home on the same block.
Lisle Deputy Police Chief Ron Wilke said Franck took both the lip balm and the pills from the vehicle and had both in his pocket when he was arrested a short time later by DuPage County sheriff deputies for also attempting to break into a home on the 600 block of Columbine Avenue.
Franck is next due in court, before Judge Kathryn Creswell at 9 a.m. July 1 in courtroom 4014.
