A west suburban man has been charged with smashing through the front door of a restaurant last month and stealing liquor, cash and electronics.
Christopher M. Sullivan, 44, was charged in connection with the Feb. 13 burglary at La Cabana Restaurant in the 800 block of South River Street in Aurora, according to a statement from Aurora police. Sullivan and an accomplice broke into the restaurant about 10:10 p.m. and made off with proceeds worth about $1,145.
Sullivan was arrested Feb. 18 when, during a conversation with a patrol officer, he made statements about several business burglaries in the city, police said. Investigators interviewed him, launched an investigation, charged him with the La Cabana incident, and established him as a suspect in several other cases.
The other suspect in the La Cabana burglary was described as a 170-pound, 5-foot-8, white male, wearing a light gray hooded sweatshirt, blue jeans, gloves, and a striped baseball cap.
Sullivan, who lives in the 1300 block of Hinckley Street in Aurora, was ordered held at the Kane County Correctional Center in St. Charles on a $125,000 bond, police said.
He is a suspect in numerous other burglaries in the area and investigators expect additional charges to be filed shortly.
Anyone with information on the burglaries should call police at (630) 256-5500 or Aurora Area Crime Stoppers at (630) 892-1000. Callers to Crime Stoppers are anonymous and qualify for a cash reward of up to $5000 for information that leads to any arrests.
