(ConservativeHub.com) – According to authorities in the Chicago suburbs, there were two separate incidents of theft involving five people over the course of two days. The five suspects managed to steal merchandise worth thousands of dollars. The individuals responsible have since been arrested by authorities.
The DuPage County State Attorney’s Office in a statement noted that the first of these incidents occurred right before 1 p.m. on November 25 at a Macy’s store in Oak Brook. The two men responsible were Jinder Moises Angulo-Aparicio (20), and Lenguieyer Guevara-Muro (27), who had allegedly used a foil-lined bag to steal close to $800 worth of clothing.
After Guevara-Muro left the store carrying the bag of stolen goods, the loss prevention officers attempted to stop him. However, Guevara-Muro refused to cooperate. An Oak Brook police officer who was patrolling the area also approached him, but he resisted before being arrested.
Angulo-Aparicio ended up leaving the store only sometime later and was stopped by authorities. However, he did not resist arrest as he was being taken in.
In a different incident the previous day, three other individuals allegedly ended up stealing over $500 worth of merchandise from a store in Elmhurst, according to the state’s attorney’s office.
The police in Elmhurst, brought into custody three individuals, including 21-year-old Christian Johan Saavedra-Omona, 33-year-old Braud Pineda Avendano, and 37-year-old Ilys Mary Ledesma Zapata. According to the police, Ledesma Zapata had been carrying a large magnet that was used to bypass the store’s anti-theft devices.
