He was ordered held on a $5,000 I-bond Wednesday during a hearing conducted remotely from Rolling Meadows Third Municipal District Courthouse.

Kadan was in Wheeling on May 6 but missed the bus back to the city, prosecutors said. He entered the back door of a funeral home, napped for about an hour and left with items from the residence, prosecutors said.
