Bond set at $60K for accused car burglar

ST. CHARLES – A West Chicago man has been charged with five counts of felony burglary from a motor vehicle for stealing items, including credit cards, from patrons of a St. Charles gym, St. Charles police said.

Daniel R. Kellogg, 35, of the 500 block of Carriage Drive, was taken into custody Wednesday on the burglary charges along with an outstanding Lake County warrant for theft, police said.

His bond was set Thursday at $60,000.

He is accused of taking keys from the front desk key basket at XSport, 238 N. Randall Road.

He used the keys to access five vehicles between March 31 and April 2, police said.

Similar burglaries were reported at XSport locations in Naperville and South Barrington, police said.

Beth O’Neil, operations manager for XSport in St. Charles, said the gym stopped using the key basket once they heard about the break-ins.

“We immediately pulled it and let the members know they were responsible to hang on to their own keys,” she said Thursday.

Police said Kellogg used the stolen credit cards to charge amounts ranging from $1,600 to $2,100 to Kellspot, a business he owns.

St. Charles Police Department spokesperson Paul McCurtain said a number of things led authorities to Kellogg, such as the credit card charges and surveillance video inside and outside of XSport.

Authorities searched Kellogg’s home and found a credit card reader, credit card receipts and a police badge stolen from a South Barrington police officer.

McCurtain said Kellogg could be charged with theft of the badge and noted St. Charles is working with the South Barrington police.

Court records show his criminal history includes burglary, theft and the misuse of credit cards.
