SYCAMORE – A 34-year-old DeKalb man police say was caught on camera stealing rifles, handguns and ammunition from a Malta home was arraigned Thursday.

Claude D. Day Jr., of the 100 block of Home Drive, pleaded not guilty to a charge of residential burglary, which typically is punishable by up to 15 years in prison. He remained in DeKalb County Jail, unable to post 10 percent of his $100,000 bond.

A wildlife camera showed Day at a home Dec. 8 in the 15600 block of Anderland Road in Malta, court records show. When police arrested him Dec. 10 on a warrant alleging he failed to appear in court on another case, Day told them he broke into the home and sold the guns and ammunition he stole to a man in St. Charles for $150, court records show.

Day is next due in court July 19, when his attorney will ask a judge to toss out his Dec. 10 arrest and the information he told police after his arrest. His attorney is arguing police did not have probable cause to arrest him Dec. 10, court records show.
