Alert Neighbor Helps Ottawa Police Arrest Alleged Burglar

Posted by wlpo on July 7, 2016

Would your neighbors call the cops if they saw something strange going on at your house?

Ottawa Police received a call from a neighbor around 10:30 Thursday morning about a possible burglary in progress. The caller told police they saw someone go into and out of a nearby home through the window. They also told police about the car the suspicious person was driving.

Because of that description, Ottawa police say they were able to quickly find and arrest 27-year old Joseph Bernico of Ottawa. Bernico was taken in for Residential Burglary and Unlawful Possession of a Controlled Substance, both felonies.

He was taken to the LaSalle County Jail where he awaits a bond hearing.
