Burglary charges: Two adults and a juvenile from West Chicago were charged with burglary after a two-month investigation into merchandise thefts at area Target stores, police said. Edgar R. Aguilar, 21, and a 14-year-old boy were arrested and a warrant has been issued for the third suspect. Additional charges against the trio were obtained by Wheaton police regarding thefts from the Target store there, police said. During the last week of March, a series of police reports were taken at the Target at 3885 E. Main St. in St. Charles. Police and Target loss prevention personnel initiated an investigation after the three thefts appeared to involve the same suspects. A store camera recorded them taking video games and top-end headphones out of their packages and concealing the items in their clothes, police said. Police from St. Charles and Wheaton were assisted by West Chicago police who were able to identify the suspects, reports stated.
