Mount Prospect Police Department on Wednesday, October 26, 2016, arrested two suspects on charges of vehicle burglary and identity theft.
Police charged Earley Burch, 25 years old, of 735 NW 10th Terrace, Fort Lauderdale, FL and Kadeem Johnson, 23 years old, of 1020 NW 7th Terrace, Fort Lauderdale, FL with two (2) counts of Burglary to Motor Vehicle, each. Kadeem Johnson was also charged with one (1) count of Identity Theft.
The Mount Prospect Police Department had taken twenty-nine reports of burglary to motor vehicle since the beginning of August 2015, which were believed to be attributed to a specific group of individuals committing these crimes. Mount Prospect police did not mention whether the suspects were part of a group known as the Felony Lane Gang, often known to be from the Florida area.
One credit card was reported taken in these burglaries, and was used at an unspecified business in the northwest suburbs. The Mount Prospect Police Department provided information to area police departments about the rash of burglaries and the description of possible offenders. On October 26, 2015 the Elk Grove Village Police Department was investigating similar crimes and identified a suspect vehicle and later located the suspect’s vehicle. Earley Burch and Kadeem Johnson were apprehended while entering the the vehicle in Elk Grove Village. A search warrant was executed and stolen property from the Mount Prospect burglaries was located.
Mount Prospect Police Detectives charged Burch and Johnson with two counts of Burglary to Motor Vehicle and Johnson was charged with one count of Identity Theft. Burch and Johnson were taken to a bond hearing, where bond was set for each of them at $50,000 “D”. Court date is set for November 3, 2016 at 1:30 PM in room 108 of the 3rd District Courthouse of Cook County in Rolling Meadows.
The arrest of Burch and Johnson for burglary to motor vehicle has cleared multiple cases.
The public is reminded that criminal charges are not evidence of guilt and that all defendants in a criminal case are presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty in a court of law.
