NORTH AURORA – Following an arrest earlier this month, the North Aurora Police Department is searching for the owners of several items that are presumed stolen.
On July 12, police arrested two men for burglary and recovered several unclaimed items that they believe were stolen, according to a news release. Officers are asking for the public's help in locating the rightful owners.
Those items include an orange Homelite brand leaf blower; a yellow Crate brand guitar amplifier; a Crybaby brand foot pedal; a Remington brand 14-inch electric chainsaw; and an Elkhorn brand bow with three orange arrows and three black arrows.
Police recovered the items following the arrests of Jordan T. Murray, 21, of the 1000 block of Reckinger Road, Aurora, and Angel A. Perez, 20, of the 700 block of Graham Road, North Aurora. Both men were charged with one count of burglary in connection with a burglary in the 100 block of Sycamore Lane, North Aurora, states the release.
Police made the arrests at about 3 a.m. on July 12, when an officer noticed a suspicious blue Chevrolet Malibu that was stopped on Sycamore Lane just north of Oak Street. The vehicle was stopped with its dome light on and two males were in the car in front of Highland Park, which was closed, police said.
Following a traffic stop, the officer noticed a tire iron in the front seat, along with a gas chainsaw, an electric chainsaw, a leaf blower, a miter saw, a skateboard and a bow-and-arrow set. Officers later determined that the two men committed a burglary on Sycamore Lane, where they said the two men stole the gas chainsaw, the miter saw and the skateboard, according to the release.
