GENEVA – The two young adults charged in connection with burglaries in St. Charles Township face 12 additional felonies out of Geneva, according to court records.

Christopher C. Mentenick, 24, of Sycamore, and Rebecca Olson, 19, of Schaumburg, now face nine counts of felony burglary as well as one count each of issuing or delivering a forged document, forgery and unlawful use of a credit card, according to documents filed Tuesday.

They are accused of burglarizing vehicles Aug. 8 in the 0-100 and 200 blocks of Westhaven Circle, the 200 block of Daniels Way, the 3300 block of Hillcrest Road and the 2900 and 3300 blocks of Husking Peg Lane, all in Geneva, according to documents.

Other allegations include forging a check.

Earlier this month, Mentenick and Olson were charged with four felonies after authorities reportedly linked them to eight vehicle burglaries that occurred in the Falcons Trail area of St. Charles Township between Aug. 7 and 10.

In St. Charles Township, they reportedly entered unlocked vehicles and stole small electronic items and credit cards.

Some of the stolen credit cards were used to buy items that were later pawned for cash, police have said.

Mentenick was being held at the Kane County Adult Justice Center on $90,000 bond and is expected in court Sept. 12.

Olson was being held on $40,000 bond and is expected in court for a status hearing today.
