DeKALB – Several burglary charges were filed this week against a 39-year-old Yorkville man who police say broke into two buildings and two cars July 17.
Brian Linn, of the 1000 block of Hampton Lane, was charged July 31 with attempted burglary and criminal damage to property in connection to damage at Zack's, a shop that buys and sells coins and jewelry at 213 Grove St., DeKalb. Authorities from Kendall County recognized him from surveillance photographs police released to the public last month, DeKalb Lt. Bob Redel said.
On Tuesday, Linn was charged with burglary for allegedly breaking into Foursquare Church, 210 Grove St. in DeKalb, and Reyna's Peluqueria, 149 S. Third St. in DeKalb. He also was accused of breaking into two vehicles at DeKalb Plating Co., 221 Grove St., Redel said. All the incidents happened between 9:30 and 10 p.m. July 17, Redel said.
Linn stole a washcloth from the church that he used later that night during a burglary, and stole cash and a necklace from Reyna's Peluqueria, Redel said.
Linn, who had been convicted of theft in LaSalle County and burglary in Kendall County, remains on parole after being released from prison in August 2012, state records show.
Linn remained in DeKalb County jail Thursday unable to post 10 percent of his $95,000 bond. He is next due in court Sept. 4.
