SYCAMORE – A Chicago man has been released on his signature, but his accomplice, a DeKalb man, remains at large after police said they collaborated to steal to laptops and try to sell them.

Walter L. Carr, 19 of the 9000 block of South Burley Avenue, has been charged with burglary and theft, and a warrant has been issued for the arrest of Josephy M. Murray, 18, of the 1300 block of Stevenson Drive in DeKalb, on the same charges, court records show. If either is convicted of burglary, he could serve four to 15 years in prison.

Court records show Carr drove Murray to a residence in the
1500 block of Farmstead Lane, where he parked and Murray walked toward the backyard and eventually hopped a fence carrying two laptops.

The records show Carr admitted to driving Murray to two businesses, including one in the 1500 block of DeKalb Avenue, where Murray was identified, before resorting to selling the laptops to a friend.

While a warrant remains active for Murray’s arrest, Carr showed up Monday at the DeKalb Police Department with the two computers, court records show.

He was released on his signature, and is due back in court at 9 a.m.
May 18. Anyone with information about the crime is asked to call police at 815-748-8400.
