Batavia man pleads guilty in burglary spree
BATAVIA – One of four people charged in several residential burglaries that occurred in August on the city’s far southeast side received 18 months of probation after pleading guilty to possession of a stolen credit or debit card.
Gregory Jordan Jr., 26, of Batavia, was charged with two felony counts of unlawful use of a credit card.
In addition to receiving probation, Jordan also spent 45 days in jail and was fined $1,318, according to Kane County court records.
Jordan pleaded guilty Sept. 27.
The burglaries occurred between Aug. 5 and Aug. 14. 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. Small electronics, such as smartphones, were taken.
Batavia Police Detective Sgt. Shawn Mazza previously had said it appeared burglars entered 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 burglaries in all three cases and had no idea someone was in their house until they noticed items missing.
Curtis A. Hobbs, 23, of Aurora, who was charged with two felony counts of unlawful use of a credit card, faces a court hearing Thursday. Terrell Jones-Bradley, 21, of Batavia, who was charged with two counts of residential burglary, one count of attempted residential burglary and two counts of unlawful use of a credit card, has a court hearing Oct. 23.
In addition, Sharonda Y. Moore, 22, of Batavia, charged with one count of possession of stolen property, has a court hearing Oct. 25.
