Two Chicago men have been charged in connection with a Monday night car burglary in Lincolnshire.

Officers were investigating a report of a suspicious person in the area of Elmwood and Cedar Lanes at 11:42 p.m. when they saw a man walking in the street. Police believed the man, Samuel J. Clavette, 19, of the 6500 block of Seeley Avenue, Chicago, was the suspect in three auto burglaries in Lincolnshire, according to a news release from Lincolnshire police Wednesday. At the time, Clavette also had a stun-gun on him without a Firearm Owner Identification card, officials said.


Meanwhile, a car headed slowly toward police and Clavette. When police stopped the vehicle, the driver lied to police about his identity; however, he was eventually was identified as Shane A. Diehl-Bremer, 20, of the 1300 block of Kedzie Avenue in Chicago, according to the release.

Shortly after, police learned the vehicle was stolen from a home in Norridge. Police were not immediately available to comment on further details.

Clavette now faces three counts of burglary to a motor vehicle, possession of a stolen motor vehicle and unlawful use of a weapon. He remained at the Lake County jail Wednesday on a $10,000 bail. He is due back in court Friday.

Diehl-Bremer was charged with criminal trespass to a motor vehicle and obstructing identification. He was released from the Lake County jail and is scheduled to appear in court Nov. 17.
