Two north suburban men were charged Wednesday with burglarizing a restaurant a month ago in the north suburban Lake Forest Oasis.

Alejandro Perez, 29, and Roberto Francisco Vindel-Guifarro, 25, both of Waukegan, were charged with two felony counts of burglary and theft over $500, according to a statement from Illinois State Police.

At 11:11 p.m. Feb. 7, the two men entered the Lake Forest Oasis Sbarro’s Pizza Restaurant through the back employee access door and stole a safe with $3,000 inside of it.

The pair attempted to put the safe into a large garbage can, but they were unable to. Then, they found a four-wheeled dolly and wheeled the safe through the rear employee exit door, police said.

Perez and Vindel-Guifarro wore black wigs and used aprons in an attempt to hide their clothing and hide their faces from security cameras, police said.

They are currently being held in the Waukegan Police Department, police said.
