Chicago-Area Man Charged in Thefts, Including of Gifts

An 18-year-old faces burglary charges after allegedly stealing Christmas gifts and other items from Chicago homes.

A Chicago police statement says that Alston Rodriguez, of Evanston, was due in a Cook County bond court on Christmas Day. Police say he was arrested early Christmas Eve as he tried to enter one home through a window.

Police say they recovered several stolen goods, including Christmas presents.

He faces two counts of burglary and two of attempted burglary.

There wasn't a public telephone listing for Rodriguez. And the police statement didn't include a name of a defense lawyer.
