Aurora man charged with stealing from photo booth coin box

A 24-year-old west suburban man has been charged with theft after photos of him stealing from a photo booth coin box in Batavia were shared on social media over the weekend.

Chancellor J. Terrell, of the 1400 block of East Wood Drive in Aurora, was charged with misdemeanor counts of criminal damage to property and theft, according to a statement from Batavia police.

On Nov. 25, 2015, Terrell was in a photo booth at Funway Amusements in Batavia trying to “pry open a coin box” when he had his photo taken, police said.

After the photos were released on social media and on TV, Terrell turned himself into Batavia police. He was booked and released on bond Monday afternoon, police said.
