Two 18-year-old men remainednight in Will County Jail in Joliet, after they and a juvenile were arrested by Naperville police and charged with burglarizing a home on the city’s far southwest side.
Edwardo C. Hernandez, of the 2800 block of Frances Road in Montgomery; Jose R. Hernandez, of the 1300 block of Dearborn Avenue in Aurora; and the juvenile are accused of stealing an assortment of jewelry from a home in the White Eagle Club area of Naperville.
Sgt. Lou Cammiso said police responded aboutto a 911 call of a suspicious silver, 1997 Mitsubishi Galant on or near the 2600 block of Saddlebrook Drive. They quickly curbed the vehicle near Saddlebrook and Deering Bay drives, Cammiso said in a news release.
Subsequent investigation showed three of the four occupants of the vehicle “were involved in a residential burglary in the 3100 block of Aviara Court, and proceeds from the burglary were recovered,” Cammiso said.
Edwardo Hernandez, Jose Hernandez and the unnamed youth allegedly gained entry to the home after prying a screen from a window, Cammiso said. No one was home at the time, and the trio allegedly made off with several pieces of jewelry, he said.
Police who participated in the traffic stop also allegedly found Edwardo Hernandez in possession of a loaded, .45-caliber, semiautomatic handgun, which had been “found to be stolen in a residential burglary in Oswego,” Cammiso said.
Jose Hernandez allegedly resisted arrest and battered one of the officers during a scuffle. Cammiso said the officer was not injured.
