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.

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.
