He and co-defendant Steven Brown, 25, of Arlington Heights, were charged with burglarizing five homes between July 5 and 24, authorities said.

Driscoll is accused of stacking a patio chair on top of a patio table to gain entry to the second floor of an Inverness home on July 8, said Cook County Assistant State's Attorney David Shin.

After taking jewelry, silver, a prescription bottle and a birth certificate from the home, he left, setting off the burglar alarm as he did so, Shin said.

On July 29, police investigating the Mount Prospect break-ins found evidence that linked Driscoll to the Inverness burglary, including a pawn ticket for the silverware, Shin said.

Driscoll next appears in court on Sept. 11.
