A man charged with burglarizing homes last month in Arlington Heights and Mount Prospect faces new charges in connection with an Inverness burglary, prosecutors said Friday.
Cook County Judge Joseph Cataldo set bond at $75,000 for Jeremy Driscoll, 26, of Chicago, currently in custody at Cook County Jail on a $60,000 bond.
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.
