SHARE Suspect in Aurora apartment burglary located

A man wanted by Aurora police for allegedly stealing electronics from an apartment in the west suburb last month has been located.

Police think Aurora resident Anthony D. Gant, 29, broke into an apartment in the 1200 block of West Indian Trail and stole about $1,150 in computer equipment, electronics and video games between 7:40 a.m. and 11 a.m. on Feb. 18, according to a statement from police.

Gant, who lives in the same block as the burglary, was identified as the suspect after police used an online system that tracks transactions made through area pawn shops and resale stores.

Investigators matched the stolen goods from the burglary to a resale shop in the 800 block of North Lake Street, which recorded Gant as the seller, police said.

According to prison records, Gant was on parole at the time for a 1999 residential burglary conviction in Will County, prison records show. He had two other previous residential burglary convictions in DuPage and Kane counties dating back to 2004.

Aurora police issued a statement Friday asking for help finding Gant, but have since learned he was taken back into the custody of the Department of Corrections on March 26, police said.
