MCHENRY COUNTY (WIFR) -- The McHenry County Sheriff’s Office announced that charges have been filed against 22-year-olds Taylor Anguiano of Belvidere and Elijah Greer of Rockford in connection with two residential burglaries that occurred in the rural Marengo area. The charges were filed after a joint investigation by the McHenry County Sheriff’s Office, Boone County Sheriff’s Department, and the Belvidere Police Department.
On April 24, 2014 deputies from the McHenry County Sheriff’s Office responded to a report of a residential burglary which had occurred sometime in the early afternoon hours. Deputies were able to track the offenders to a cash for gold store in the city of Belvidere where the offenders where selling proceeds from the burglaries.
Members of the Boone County Sheriff’s Department and the Belvidere Police Department assisted in the investigation and located Anguiana in the vehicle used in the commission of the burglaries in a parking lot a short distance from the cash for gold store. Members of the Boone County Sheriff’s Department and the Belvidere Police Department also detained Greer in the area after a short foot pursuit.
McHenry County Sheriff’s Investigators were able to link both burglaries from the stolen proceeds located in the offender’s vehicle.
Both Angulano and Greer were each charged with two counts of Residential Burglary (Class 1 Felony) and two counts of theft. They are each being held on a $150,000 bond and will be in court next on April 29, 2014 at 9 a.m.
