arrested two teens early Friday morning after they allegedly broke into a vehicle near 143rd Street and Meadow Lane.
Raymond M. Villa, 19, of 12910 Stellar Lane, Plainfield, is being held in the Will County jail on charges of burglary from a motor vehicle, theft, criminal damage to property. His alleged 15-year-old accomplice was charged in juvenile court and has been released to a guardian.
Police say the pair were seen breaking into a vehicle and were confronted by its owner. When they fled on bicycles, the victim called the police and followed them.
The two were taken into custody a short time later and, when questioned at the Plainfield Police Department, implicated themselves in the crime, according to a media release issued Friday afternoon by Sgt. Kevin McQuaid.
Police found them in possession of bicycles, electronic equipment and a credit card that were not their property, McQuaid said.
Villa will appear in court Saturday, where a judge will review the case and set bail.
