Chicago man faces burglary charge in DeKalb

SYCAMORE – A Chicago man was charged Tuesday with breaking into a former girlfriend’s DeKalb home and stealing her computer.

Brandon L. Harvey, 21, of the 7900 block of South Perry Avenue in Chicago, was charged with residential burglary and criminal trespass to real property.

If convicted of residential burglary, Harvey faces up to 15 years in prison.

During a hearing Wednesday at the DeKalb County Courthouse, Harvey appeared via closed-circuit TV from the county jail.

About 9:15 p.m. Tuesday, a resident of an apartment in the 800 block of West Taylor Street in DeKalb found her kitchen door had been kicked in and her laptop computer missing, according to court documents.

The victim believed her ex-boyfriend, Harvey, was responsible because he had been banned from the property earlier that day.

Harvey, who was found walking in the 500 block of North Annie Glidden Road, told police he returned to the apartment to get money but denied entering, according to court documents.

Harvey let officers search his belongings at a residence in the 300 block of Ash Court and the laptop was found. He then admitted to police he broke into the apartment and took the laptop with the intention of trying to sell it.

Presiding Judge Robbin Stuckert set bond at $75,000 for Harvey, who has previous drug charges. He will appear in court again today.
