CHICAGO — Police officers nabbed three men soon after they broke into a Roscoe Village home Tuesday morning, cops said.
Three men, two from the South Side and one from suburban Waukegan, were each charged with two counts of residential burglary after the bust.
Michael Stephans, Jr., 31, of Waukegan; Tyrone L. Donald, Jr., 22, of the 5200 block of South Racine Avenue in Back of the Yards; and Cory A. Durr, 31, of the 6700 block of South Winchester Avenue in West Englewood are scheduled to appear in court Wednesday.
Officers got a call of a burglary in progress in the 3500 block of North Oakley Avenue about 11:10 a.m., police said in a statement.
After they got to the North Side home, the officers surrounded it and saw the suspects trying to escape. Then the men doubled back into the residence, police said.
Officers went inside and collared two of the men. They found the third hiding under a piece of furniture, police said.
It was unclear if anyone was home during the break-in.
After searching one of the suspect's cars found near the home, police found items stolen in a previous heist, cops said.
