ST. CHARLES TOWNSHIP – An Aurora man will serve four years in prison for his role in several burglaries in Batavia in August 2013.

Curtis A. Hobbs, 24, of Aurora, recently pleaded guilty to unlawful possession of a credit card. Hobbs was one of four people charged in several residential burglaries that occurred last year on Batavia's far southeast side.

Batavia police have said the burglaries happened in the 900 to 1200 blocks of Woodland Hills Road and in the 1600 block of Wagner Road. Small electronics, such as smartphones, were taken.

Hobbs was the last person sentenced in the case. Terrell Jones-Bradley, 22, of Batavia, in December pleaded guilty to residential burglary and was sentenced to four years in prison.

Gregory Jordan Jr., 27, of Batavia, received 18 months of probation after pleading guilty to possession of a stolen credit or debit card. Sharonda Y. Moore, 22, of Batavia, pleaded guilty and in December was admitted into Kane County's deferred prosecution program for first-time, nonviolent offenders.

Batavia police officials previously said it appeared entry was made through an open garage in one case and possibly through some unlocked windows in the other two cases. Officials 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.
