BATAVIA – A 24-year-old Aurora man has been charged with criminal damage to property and theft in a November incident that involved a photo booth at Funway in Batavia.

According to a news release issued by the Batavia Police Department, Chancellor J. Terrell, 24, of the 1400 block of East Wood Drive, Aurora, turned himself in to the Batavia police at 1 p.m. Monday.

Police last week issued an alert after photos were obtained from the photo booth. According to police, it is alleged that Terrell, while attempting to pry open a coin box in the photo booth at Funway, had his photo taken while committing the theft in an incident that took place on Nov. 25, 2015. After police distributed the photos last week, several tips were received, according to the release.

The release indicated that Terrell was booked and released on Monday afternoon. The charges are misdemeanors, and Terrell could get up to one year in jail if convicted, the release states.

According to the previous release, $75 was taken from the photo booth and $75 in damage was caused to the booth. Police had said the machine was designed to take photographs when it senses tampering to the cash drawer.

The machine is among the attractions at Funway, which is a facility that includes an arcade, a bowling alley, miniature golf courses and more.
