On September 26, 2016, the same residence was burglarized again. Entry was again forced to a ground floor window. Several electronic items were stolen during the burglary.
Lake County Sheriff’s Evidence Technicians responded to both burglaries and canvassed the scene for evidence.

On October 26, 2016, Ramirez was located by the Lake County Sheriff’s Warrants Team at a residence in the 400 block of McKinley Avenue, Waukegan, where he was taken into custody.
