NORTH AURORA – A North Aurora man has been sentenced to 150 hours of community service after he was accused of being involved in a burglary in North Aurora this summer.

Angel A. Perez of North Aurora was charged with one count of burglary.

He did not enter a plea during a Nov. 5 court hearing.

Also charged in connection with the burglary in the 100 block of Sycamore Lane, North Aurora, was Jordan T. Murray of Aurora.

Murray pleaded guilty in August and was sentenced to 100 hours of community service and 24 months of probation.

On July 12, North Aurora police arrested Perez and Murray and charged them with burglary.

Police recovered several unclaimed items that they believe were stolen.

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 made the arrests about 3 a.m. July 12, when an officer noticed a suspicious blue Chevrolet Malibu that was stopped on Sycamore Lane just north of Oak Street.

After 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.

Police said 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.
