CHICAGO (CBS) — A West Rogers Park man has been charged with stealing cash and cleaning equipment from a special education school in west suburban Lisle.

Bektasevic worked for a cleaning company that was contracted to clean Giant Steps, a day school and therapy facility for children and adults with autism, prosecutors said. He was scheduled to clean the school on Oct. 6 but instead called in sick.

He then went to the school that day, used his key card to get in and stole a vacuum cleaner and an envelope full of cash, according to the state’s attorney’s office. On Nov. 4, he used his key card to access the school again and, while wearing a mask, stole a safe containing about $3,500.

His next court appearance is scheduled for Dec. 12 before DuPage County Judge John Kinsella.
