[ARCHIVED] Burglary Crew Identified and Charged

Lake County Sheriff’s Detectives identify and arrest crew associated with multiple-county burglaries.

Sheriff’s deputies took a report of a residential burglary that occurred on November 19, 2022, in the 31000 block of O’Plaine Road in Green Oaks.  Sheriff’s deputies at the scene conducted evidence technician work and sheriff’s detectives obtained video surveillance of the burglars.  

Sheriff’s detectives worked with the North Regional Major Crimes Task Force (NORTAF), who were conducting investigations on the same burglary crew.  Through collaboration with NORTAF, Lake County Sheriff’s Detectives, and other regional law-enforcement identified Al Miller, 35, of Chicago, as being one of the burglars.  The other two were identified at juveniles, a 17-year-old boy of Chicago, and a 16-year-old boy of Chicago.  

On December 10, 2022, while conducting surveillance, members of NORTAF observed the crew committing a residential burglary in Glencoe.  The three were arrested.  Miller remains held in the Cook County Jail.

On December 30, 2022, Lake County Sheriff’s Detectives obtained the following charges for Miller:

Contributing to the Delinquency of a Minor (Class X Felony)

Residential Burglary (Class 1 Felony)

A warrant was issued for Miller and a bond of $250,000.00 was set on the warrant.  Miller will be transferred to the Lake County Jail following his Cook County court proceedings.  The juveniles are being referred to Lake County Juvenile Court for their criminal involvement.  

Miller also has an active arrest warrant out of DuPage County for burglarizing a residence there.  

This crew is suspected of a residential burglary that occurred in Long Grove around the time of the Green Oaks burglary and additional charges are likely.  

Sheriff John D. Idleburg said, “I credit thorough investigative work and multi-jurisdictional collaboration with the success of this case.  When law-enforcement work together, we are able to identity and arrest those who prey on others.”

All defendants are presumed innocent unless proven guilty in a court of law.
