A man who has served time for robbery and burglary is headed back to prison for six years, after being found guilty of burglarizing a vehicle last summer on Naperville’s north side.
Ian J. Haak, 31, had been out of prison for only four months when he was arrested and charged with vehicular burglary. That arrest effectively violated the terms of his parole.
Haak, of Chicago, formerly lived in Aurora and on the 1500 block of Watkins Lane, in the Grand Reserve of Naperville apartment complex on the city’s west side. DuPage County Circuit Court Judge John J. Kinsella on Wednesday convicted him of the most recent burglary and imposed the six-year prison term, according to court records.
Naperville police arrested Haak about 4:18 a.m. July 13, shortly after he broke into a vehicle parked on the 600 block of Windham Lane.
His most recent, prior crime occurred in September 2011, when he was charged with burglarizing a vehicle parked on the 2500 block of Versailles Avenue. That is in the Brittany Springs Apartments in the far west-central part of Naperville.
Haak in December 2011 was found guilty in that case and sentenced to three years in prison. Records on file with the Illinois Department of Corrections in Springfield indicated he was paroled on March 5, after serving about half of his sentence.
He was also one of nine men arrested and charged in a September-October 2009 burglary spree in the Waukegan-Gurnee area, police records showed
Haak began serving a three-year prison term in February 2005, after he and a friend from Michigan were charged in a March 2004 robbery in Wheaton. He was also convicted of aggravated assault in that case.
