BATAVIA – City officials Monday night expressed their gratitude to the Batavia Police Department for arresting four individuals in a string of recent burglaries on the city’s southeast side.
“Thanks to you for your quick action,” 1st Ward Alderman Michael O’Brien said, in addressing Batavia Police Chief Gary Schira at Monday’s Batavia City Council meeting.
The city’s southeast side is in the first ward.
Batavia Mayor Jeff Schielke also expressed his appreciation to Batavia police officers.
“I know there was a lot of extra effort on their part,” Schielke said.
Four individuals have been charged in several residential burglaries that occurred between Aug. 5 and Aug. 14 on the city’s far southeast side.
Terrell Jones-Bradley, 21, of the 1200 block of East Wilson Street, Batavia, was charged with two counts of residential burglary, one count of attempted residential burglary and two counts of unlawful use of a credit card, all felonies.
Gregory Jordan Jr., 26, of the 1300 block of East Wilson Street, Batavia, and Curtis A. Hobbs, 23, of the 0-100 block of North Broadway Avenue, Aurora, each were charged with two felony counts of unlawful use of a credit card.
In addition, Sharonda Y. Moore, 22, of the 1200 block of East Wilson Street, Batavia, was charged with one count of possession of stolen property.
The arrests are related to three residential burglaries that occurred in the 900 to 1200 blocks of Woodland Hills Road and in the 1600 block of Wagner Road in Batavia.
Batavia Police Detective Sgt. Shawn Mazza previously had said it appeared entry was made through an open garage in one case and possibly through some unlocked windows in the other two cases.
Mazza had said homeowners were home during the time of the burglaries in all three cases and had no idea someone was in their house until they noticed items missing.
“Some property we did recover, but other property has been fenced,” Schira said.
