[ARCHIVED] Man Arrested after Committing Burglary in Unincorporated Lake Villa


On October 29, 2016 at approximately 10:15PM, Lake County Sheriff’s Deputies were dispatched to the 25600 block of West Marshfield Road, Unincorporated Lake Villa, for a burglary in progress. The victim, who was returning home, witnessed two subjects in the area of her residence who were in possession of her bicycle and two of her scooters. The items had been stolen from a shed on her property.

Lake County Sheriff’s Deputies arrived in the area and quickly located one of the subjects who was identified as, Daniel Morales, 29, of the 37000 block of North Piper Lane, Unincorporated Lake Villa. Morales was in possession of one of the stolen scooters. Initially, Morales lied about his name to sheriff’s deputies.

Morales was arrested and subsequently charged with burglary (class 2 felony), theft (class A misdemeanor), and obstructing identification (class A misdemeanor). Morales is being held in the Lake County Jail on $50,000.00 bail. His next court date is November 1, 2016, at 1:30PM, in courtroom C-120.

The second subject was able to flee before the arrival of sheriff’s deputies, however, the Lake County Sheriff’s Office continues to investigate.

Sheriff Curran reminds the public that the defendant is presumed innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
