Streator Man Makes First Court Appearance in Robbery Case

Posted by wlpo on October 31, 2016

A Streator man who was arrested for robbery last week will be back in court with his lawyer Friday.

Thirty-year old Juan Garcia Nunez appeared in court with his lawyer Monday morning for his first appearance before a judge. In court, his lawyer argued that bond should be reduced for Garcia Nunez. The motion was denied after States’ Attorney Brian Towne’s objection.

While Garcia Nunez is accused of breaking into a Streator home in September. According to Towne, actions allegedly 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. Garcia Nunez is in custody at the LaSalle County Jail where he’d need to come up with $100,000 cash to be released.
