Victim Plays Detective, Leads to Burglary Arrest

News

A burglary suspect is in custody thanks to the victim’s own detective work.

Police arrested Delbert Monroe, 53, Saturday.  They say he stole equipment from a farm in the 6000 block of Forest Preserve Rd. near Rockton.  We’re told the victim actually traced the equipment to a local metal recycler.  From there, he found out who sold them, leading officers right to Monroe.

Monroe’s now charged with burglary.
