Two individuals accused of burglarizing a vehicle and using stolen credit cards were arrested in unincorporated Glen Ellyn on Tuesday, according to a release from the Dupage County Sheriff’s Office.
Nicholas Castigilia, 25, of Carol Stream, and Melissa Warner, 23, of Schaumburg, have both been charged with one count of Aggravated Fleeing and Eluding in a Stolen Motor Vehicle, a Class 1 felony; Possession of a Stolen Motor Vehicle, a Class 2 felony; Burglary to Motor Vehicle and Unlawful use of Credit Card, which are both Class 4 felonies.
Deputies responded to a report of a purse being stolen from a vehicle parked at the KinderCare, located at the intersection of Butterfield Road and Route 53, on the morning of Jan. 9. One of the victim’s credit cards was registered as being used at a local business 15 minutes later, according to the release. Deputies obtained a description of a maroon Chrysler they believed to be involved, and asked local businesses to report any sightings.
The vehicle was sighted at approximately 11:15 a.m. on Jan. 10 in the Walmart parking lot, also located at Butterfield Road and Route 53. Responding deputies were unable to detain the Chrysler in the parking lot, and the assailants fled south on Route 53. The vehicle crashed into a brick wall at Route 53 and Tamarack Road. Officers arrested the individuals after a brief foot chase.
Castigilia and Warner are currently being held in the DuPage County Jail. Castigilia has a bond of $150,000 and Warner’s bond has been set at $50,000. Both are scheduled for court on Jan. 23.
