Bond was set at $125,000 on Wednesday for a man charged with breaking into three homes this winter in the Pilsen neighborhood.

Eduardo Campos, 24, faces three felony counts of residential burglary, according to Chicago Police.

Campos broke in through a side door about 3:30 p.m. Feb. 25 at a home in the 1300 block of West 18th Place and stole several items, police said. Surveillance video was released to a television news station, and a viewer recognized him, police said.

He was arrested Tuesday in the 1300 block of West 19th Street and implicated in two other Pilsen burglaries that happened Dec. 10 and Jan. 20, police said.

Campos, who lives in the neighborhood, was jailed Wednesday on a $125,000 bond, according to the Cook County sheriff’s office. He is due in court again March 28.
