Fingerprints bring arrest for burglary
RANTOUL — A Rantoul man's fingerprints were used to link him to a burglary at a Rantoul home that happened last month.
Treston White, 34, who listed an address in the 1000 block of Bel Air Drive, was arraigned Wednesday on a single count of residential burglary.
He is accused of entering a home in the 1100 block of Bel Air on Jan. 10 and stealing a television, DVD player and clothing.
Assistant State's Attorney Larry Solava said a relative of White lived in the house and returned home to find her pit bulls, which had been inside, outdoors. The woman told police that the dogs only cooperated with White and her husband, who was away at the time. She also discovered the other items missing. Police found fingerprints on a window that were later found to match White's, Solava said.
Because of prior convictions, White is eligible for Class X sentencing of between six and 30 years if convicted.
Solava said White also has a domestic battery case and another case charging him with violation of the sex offender registration act pending.
Judge Richard Klaus set White's bond at $50,000 and told him to be back in court March 6.
