Man Arrested for Burglary Possibly Connected to Several More Incidents

Posted by wlpo on October 28, 2016

A Streator man who was arrested Friday afternoon is suspected in several break-ins over a number of years in the area.

At a press conference this afternoon, Ottawa Police and States’ Attorney Brian Towne announced that 30-year old Juan Garcia Nunez had been arrested earlier in the day. While he was arrested for 1 count of residential burglary, both police and Towne believe more charges are possible.

Garcia Nunez is accused of breaking into a Streator home in September. According to Towne, actions done by Garcia Nunez involving women’s underwear may tie him to a number of other incidents under investigation.

Police claimed it is possible Garcia Nunez could’ve been involved in more than 20 other incidents in the area. Ottawa Police Captain Dave Gualandri said the department believed Garcia Nunez posed a “significant danger to the public.”

Garcia Nunez is currently at the LaSalle County Jail where he’s being held on $1 million bond. He’s expected to appear in court Monday.
