On Monday May 11, 2020, at approximately 1:45 a.m., Matthew C. Cadwell, age 32, of the block of 200 Washington Square, Elk Grove Village was arrested by the Schaumburg Police Department, and charged with two counts of Residential Burglary (Class 1 Felony) and two counts of Attempted Residential Burglary (Class 2 Felony).

Prior to the arrest, Schaumburg police responded about 11:04 p.m. Sunday May 10, 2020 to a report of a residential burglary in progress in the block of 200 Bridlewood Court where a white male suspect entered the home after shattering the glass to a window.

When the homeowner confronted the intruder, the suspect immediately fled the residence.

Subsequently, officers were dispatched to three burglary-related cases at other nearby locations in the block of 200 Spring Creek Circle in the block of 200 block Willoby Court and in the block of 1400 Willow Road. At each location, the same male suspect allegedly attempted or successfully entered homes at these locations, according to Schaumburg Police Department. The suspect also fled in each additional incident when he was confronted by the homeowner.

Schaumburg police officers began a coordinated search of the area with the assistance of a K9 unit from Rolling Meadows and the Elgin Police Department drone team. As a result of the search, Matthew C. Cadwell was located at a nearby hotel where he was taken into custody. Cadwell was later identified by one of the witnesses as the individual who had entered or attempted to enter the four homes.

The facts of the case were reviewed by the Cook County State’s Attorney’s Office, and charges were authorized. Cadwell was transported to the Cook County Jail and was held on $50,000 bond.

Members of the public are reminded that this arrest and complaint contains only charges and is not proof of the defendant’s guilt. A defendant is presumed innocent and is entitled to a fair trial in which it is the government’s burden to prove his or her guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.
