Prosecutors accuse the pair of burglarizing two homes in Arlington Heights: one on Bristol Lane on July 5 and another on Burton Place on July 7.

Sin said the pair burglarized a home July 14 on Hatlen Avenue in Mount Prospect. They also are accused of burglarizing a home July 18 on Verde Drive and July 24 on Bonita Avenue, both in Mount Prospect.

Stolen items included credit cards, electronics and jewelry, which police recovered from the defendants' apartments, Shin said. Police located the defendants by tracing the activity on the stolen credit cards, Shin said.

Driscoll's background includes a 2008 conviction for possession of cannabis and a 2006 conviction for theft. Brown has no criminal background, Shin said.

They next appear in court on Aug. 22.
