YORKVILLE, IL (STMW) — A man who allegedly broke into his grandparents’ southwest suburban home while they were on vacation, then called police to report other intruders, has been charged with burglary.
Mitchell Tyler Rust, 20, of the 6N100 block of Riverside Drive in St. Charles was arrested Friday at the Kendall County Courthouse and charged with felony counts of residential burglary and criminal damage to property, according to Deputy Craig French of the Kendall County Sheriff’s office.
The burglary occurred on Nov. 13, 2010, in the 0-100 block of Fox Glen Court in an unincorporated area of Yorkville. Sheriff’s police were called to the scene about 8:20 a.m. by Rust, who reported he was having problems with intruders at the house, French said.
But investigation showed that Rust was at the home, which belonged to his grandparents, illegally, after breaking in through a basement window. It also appeared he had rifled through drawers at the home and damaged a vehicle parked in the garage, French said.
Rust was taken to a hospital for what French called an “unrelated matter” as deputies investigated.
Rust apparently broke in to burglarize the home but was interrupted by the other subjects, whom French called “associates,” showing up and causing an altercation. The others were gone when police arrived.
Following a lengthy investigation, a warrant was issued on March 9 for Rust’s arrest. On Friday, when he showed up at the courthouse in Yorkville on an unrelated matter, he was taken into custody, French said.
Rust was ordered held on $75,000 bond on the two felony charges and remained in custody at the Kendall County Jail as of Thursday afternoon.
