An Evanston man was sentenced to eight years in prison this month after he pled guilty to stealing thousands of dollars worth of jewelry from a Wilmette home in December 2011, the Chicago Tribune reports.
Police were called to the 2200 block of Kenilworth Avenue on Dec. 16, 2011, after an 18-year-old resident called 9-11 from his bedroom closet while the burglary was in process. Officers later recovered $7,000 worth of jewelry, including a pair of gold chains, a string of pearls and gold and silver pendants, according to police.
Police arrested two men following the burglary, including Creed V. McGee, 47, of the 1900 block of Jackson Avenue in Evanston. McGee pled guilty to the burglary and was sentenced to eight years in prison and fined $384 on Jan. 7, the Tribune reports.
The second man, Christopher D. Boyd, 41, of Skokie, is set to appear in court on Jan. 30, according to a representative of Cook County Circuit Court in Skokie.
