Two men have been charged with breaking into a bar in northwest suburban Woodstock last week and stealing alcohol, money and a security camera.
Wesley A. Feller, 20, faces two felony counts of burglary, two misdemeanor counts of criminal damage to property and one misdemeanor count of theft under $500, according to a statement from Woodstock police.
His associate, 21-year-old Caleb M. Fringer, has been charged with one misdemeanor count of criminal trespass to property, police said.
On March 12, the owner of Liquid Blues Bar at 126 N. Benton St. noticed one of the security cameras was missing, police said. Surveillance footage from that camera revealed that two men broke into the building during the early morning hours of March 10 by breaking a window and stole numerous bottles of alcohol, an undisclosed amount of cash and the camera.
Woodstock police issued a press release requesting assistance from the public in identifying the suspects and Wednesday afternoon apprehended Feller and Fringer at their apartment in the 900 block of Irving Avenue in Woodstock, police said.
Fringer posted $1,500 bond and has been released with his next court date scheduled for April 21, police said. Feller is being held at the McHenry County Adult Correctional Facility on a $5,000 bond and is next scheduled to appear in court March 21.
