    Keynaz J. Foster has five pending felony cases in Kane County, three of which were while he was free on bond in a December 2018 burglary case.

A suspect in a $6,000 coin robbery of an Aurora vending business has been charged with breaking into a vehicle at an auto repair shop and forgery -- his second and third felony charges while he was free on bond.

Keynaz J. Foster, 20, of the 1700 block of Felton Road, was arrested on Dec. 28 and charged with felony burglary of a vending business; a 16-year-old juvenile also was charged in the theft.

Foster posted bond and was subsequently arrested the morning of Feb. 19 on charges of possession of a stolen vehicle, a 2017 Subaru Crosstekk, and resisting arrest, according to Kane County court records.

Last week, felony charges were authorized against Foster for two more felonies he is accused of committing while free on bond.

Aurora police Sgt. William Rowley said Foster is charged with burglarizing a vehicle on Feb. 18 at Gerber Collision and Glass, 1313 N. Lake St., on the city's northwest side.

Foster also is accused of trying to forge three separate checks obtained through another vehicle burglary, according to Rowley. The checks, court records show, were made out for $200, $400 and $550 for three separate banks; the checks were recovered and there was no monetary loss, Rowley said.

Foster also is charged with an October 2018 vehicle burglary, making it five total cases he now has pending.

Foster is now being held at the Kane County jail on $150,000 bail, meaning he must post $15,000 to be released while the cases are pending. He is next due in court on Friday.
