Lake County sheriff's police say they have captured a man accused of committing burglaries in Third Lake and unincorporated Wildwood.

Sheriff's police announced Friday that Johnathan J. Hacker, 34, of the 100 block of Main Street in Round Lake Park, was charged with residential burglary, six counts of burglary, theft over $500, three counts of identity theft and two counts of unlawful use of a credit card.

Hacker was seized by police Monday on an arrest warrant for unlawful use of credit card.

Police said Hacker went on his crime spree Aug. 20-23, burglarizing an unspecified number of houses and vehicles in Third Lake and Wildwood.

Leads for the case were developed through surveillance videos of a man believed to be Hacker using stolen credit cards. Police said Hacker was identified as being the one using the cards.

While in custody, authorities said, Hacker gave locations to investigators that helped them recover stolen goods. Police were unable to immediately say what Hacker is accused of taking.

Hacker was in the Lake County jail on Friday on $100,000 bail. He's to appear in Lake County court Wednesday, Sept. 24.
