NAPERVILLE, Ill. (STMW) — Nearly a month after the crime, detectives have nabbed a Dixmoor woman accused of stealing a computer and electronic dictionary from a west suburban church.

Wendy S. Johnson, 51, of the 14500 block of David Street in Dixmoor, was charged with one count of burglary to a house of worship, a Class 1 felony, a release from the DuPage County Sheriff’s office said.

Sheriff’s detectives had been investigating a burglary that happened on April 12 at the World Mission Society Church of God at 29W771 79th St. in Naperville.

Johnson allegedly entered the church to ask for assistance and then went into an office where she emptied a bag, placed a Dell Laptop computer and an electronic dictionary into the bag and then left the church, the release said.

Johnson is being held at the DuPage County Jail on $3,000 bond for an obstruction of justice charge and $25,000 for the burglary charge. She’s due in court on Thursday, the release said.
