A 19-year-old Chicago man has been linked through his fingerprints to three different burglaries that occurred in April in the Urbana area.

Fingerprints were found at the scene of two break-in locations, and police used those prints to find the alleged burglar. The man was arrested, and now faces three separate counts of residential burglary. Items that were stolen during the break-ins include a laptop, a computer tablet, and a motor vehicle.

The motor vehicle was recovered the same day it was reported as stolen, and the suspect was found in the car along with two other individuals. If the man is convicted of the charges that have been filed against him, he could face a maximum of 15 years behind bars.
