COOK COUNTY CRIMINAL COURTHOUSE — A suburban man stole $4,000 worth of golf clubs from a car parked at Brother Rice High School, prosecutors said.
Police arrested Thomas Perconti, 45, after they spotted him carrying the clubs down Pulaski Road near 97th Street about 12:45 p.m. Wednesday, prosecutors said.
Officers had been called to the Catholic high school at 10001 S. Pulaski Road when someone spotted a man looking into car windows in the school's parking lot, Assistant State's Attorney Lorraine Scaduto said during a bond hearing at the Leighton Criminal Courthouse, 2650 S. California Ave.
According to an arrest report, Perconti broke the window of a 2016 Buick Encore with a rock and stole a golf bag containing $4,000 worth of clubs.
Prosecutors in court said the car belonged to a student's father; the boy had driven his dad's car to school that day.
Perconti, who lives in suburban Chicago Ridge, is charged with burglary.
Cook County Judge Maria Kuriakos Ciesil set bail at $150,000.
