SYCAMORE – A judge declined to reduce bail Tuesday for a 17-year-old Genoa boy accused of stealing more than $500 worth of jewelry from his mother.

Jasper Engles, of the 500 block of Willow Glen Drive, was charged with felony theft for allegedly stealing the jewelry April 20, court records show. If convicted, he could be sentenced to probation or up to five years in prison.

Engles, a junior at Genoa-Kingston High School, remained in DeKalb County Jail on Tuesday unable to post $500. His next court date is May 21.
