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.
