Three St. Charles East High School students have been implicated in a rash of burglaries at the school in April.
St. Charles police charged Shane R. Carroll, 18, 3123 Raphael Court, and two 16-year-old students with burglary following a month-long investigation.
According to a St. Charles Police Department press release, a school club met at St. Charles East on April 21. During the meeting, three of the students began to wander around the school. During their wanderings, the students entered offices and classrooms and removed various items, including cash, calculators, flash drives, laser pointers, keys and school passes.
The school resource officer and members of the high school staff investigated the incident and were able to recover the stolen items and identify the students who were responsible.
Once the investigation was complete, contact was made with the Kane County States Attorney’s Office and burglary charges were authorized. The two 16-year-old juveniles were booked, processed and released in the custody of their parents. Both have been referred to Kane County Juvenile Court Services.
An arrest warrant was obtained for Carroll and arrangements were made to have him come to the police department on May 24, at which time he was booked, processed, and released on cash bond.
Carroll’s next court date is June 20 at 9 a.m. in Room 211 at the Kane County Judicial Center.
