A 24-year-old man from Aurora has been sentenced to six months in DuPage County Jail, after being found guilty of stealing a computer last summer from an office building on Naperville’s far northwest side.
Mark Hillard-Brundidge Jr. spent 100 days in the jail following his arrest. With day-for-day credit for good behavior, he has already served his time, according to records on file in DuPage County Circuit Court in Wheaton.
Hillard-Brundidge lives on the 3500 block of Fairfax Court in Aurora. He was arrested Aug. 22 following a burglary to an office on the 2100 block of City Gate Lane, southeast of Ferry Road and Route 59.
A Naperville police spokesman in August said officers were sent that day to investigate a reported theft of a desktop computer from the building.
“Further investigation determined Hillard-Brundidge at one time occupied office space in the building (but) no longer was allowed access” to it, the spokesman said.
Investigators, using video surveillance tapes “and other electronic information, determined Hillard-Brundidge did, in fact, enter the building illegally,” the spokesman said.
A search warrant was later executed at his home, leading to the recovery of the stolen computer, the spokesman said.
Hillard-Brundidge pleaded guilty Nov. 30 to a felony charge of burglary, court records indicated. Judge Daniel P. Guerin that day accepted his plea and sentenced him to time served in the jail.
Records showed Guerin also placed Hillard-Brundidge on two years of probation and ordered him to make $1,432 in restitution. The judge also assessed fines and court costs that totaled $527, according to records.
Hillard-Brundidge had no prior record in DuPage County.
