SHARE Man charged with series of Lansing burglaries

A south suburban man has been charged with a series of recent burglaries in Lansing.

Officers were called about a suspicious vehicle driving near Washington Street and Maple Avenue about noon Monday, according to a statement from Lansing police. Several burglaries had been reported in the area recently, and police had issued a community alert seeking information about the suspects.

When officers arrived, they stopped a silver 2014 Chevrolet Malibu driven by 19-year-old Davion Williams, police said. Williams was arrested for driving with a suspended license, and during an inventory of the car before it was towed, officers found a tablet computer reported stolen in one of the burglaries.

Williams, of Burnham, admitted his involvement in several Lansing burglaries, according to police. He was charged with residential burglary.

Detectives were able to recover some of the stolen property from other burglaries from local pawn shops, police said.

A girl, who police identified only as a juvenile, was also arrested in connection with the burglaries, and was petitioned to juvenile court on residential burglary charges.
