Two charged in Naperville burglary

The Will County State’s Attorney’s Office has approved felony charges against two Aurora teens arrested this week and accused of  burglarizing a home near the intersection of Illinois Route 59 and 95th Street in Naperville, law enforcement officials said Thursday.

Shivan Zeynali, 19, of the 2200 block of South Crescent Lane, and Brian A. Williams, 18, of the 3000 block of Long Grove Lane, are each charged with one count of residential burglary in connection with the 10:40 p.m. Monday break-in on the 3500 block of Rosecroft Lane.

Naperville Police Spokesman Sgt. Gregg Bell said the home was entered through a rear sliding door or basement window, triggering an alarm. The homeowner and her teenage son awoke, locked themselves in a bedroom and called 911, Bell said. Both were unharmed, he said.

Responding police reported seeing two males running from the property and searched the home to ensure no other unauthorized people were inside, Bell said.

Police reportedly apprehended Williams and a second Aurora teen at 11:20 p.m., near the intersection of Illinois Route 59 south of 95th Street – approximately one-half mile from the home. Bell said the area canvass drew on support from officers on foot and Naperville K-9 “Sabek.”

After further investigation, police took Zeynali into custody at his home.

Bell said police recovered a backpack from one of the teens, but said he didn’t think it contained “proceeds” or burglary tools.

Acknowledging burglaries typically occur during the day, Bell said the alleged burglars might have thought the home was unoccupied. He said he didn’t know if the teens knew the residents, adding the investigation is continuing.

Residential burglary is a Class 1 felony, carrying a sentencing range of 4 to 15 years.

Will County State’s Attorney Spokesman Charles Pelkie said Thursday morning he could confirm only the charges against Williams and Zeynali.
