DeKALB – Police are trying to figure out who stole marijuana from a DeKalb man at gunpoint after charging three alleged look-outs with home invasion.

Two men with guns stole an ounce or two of marijuana May 1 from an apartment in the 900 block of West Hillcrest Street after breaking in and threatening to shoot the man there, DeKalb police Lt. Bob Redel said.

Charged on Thursday with home invasion were: Darrell R. Rhyme, 18, of the 7000 block of South Harper Avenue in Chicago; Deontay L. Page, 20, of the 6200 block of South Vernon Avenue in Chicago, and Perry A. Cleaves, 19, of the 6500 block of South Greenwood Avenue, Chicago. Page and Cleaves also were charged with obstructing justice for telling police they did not know one of their alleged co-defendants, court records show.

Page and Cleaves were arrested in Cook County, while Rhyme plans to turn himself in later this week, Redel said. If convicted of home invasion, they could be sentenced to between six and 30 years in prison.
