Pioneer Local has reported the arrests of two men, one from Bellwood and one from Lombard, allegedly involved in a string of burglaries in nearby River Forest. Here’s an excerpt from that article:

“RIVER FOREST — Police investigating several recent burglaries arrested two men in Maywood after the car they were driving matched the description of a car used in the previous crimes.

Jeremy Seaton, 20, of Lombard, and Christopher Lukes, 22, of Bellwood are charged with residential burglary. Seaton is being held in lieu of $30,000 bond, Lukes in lieu of $20,000 bond. Both men have preliminary hearings June 20 at the Maybrook Courthouse.

Lukes was paroled in December 2011, from a previous residential burglary conviction, as well as possession of a stolen firearm.

Deputy Chief James O’Shea said police responded to the 500 block of River Oaks on June 11 after a witness reported seeing a person ‘walking through a yard while carrying a guitar.’ The man entered a green Buick parked on Lake Street.”

  1. Why does your article headline “Two Maywood men” when one lives in Lombard and the other in Bellwood. We get enough bad press for facts that are true!
