WILL COUNTY — A Joliet man has been charged with stealing computer and electronic equipment from the Lincoln-Way High School District 210 schools where he worked as a janitor, Will County sheriff’s police said..
Jose O. Guerra, 29, of 605 Ingalls Ave., was arrested Tuesday on eight counts of theft, Deputy Chief Ken Kaupas said.
He said some school property was seized from Guerra’s residence following his arrest.
“District employees had noticed several pieces of equipment, such as iPads, were unaccounted for at different buildings,” Kaupas said. “Our detectives began an investigation to narrow down who had access to the items and that led to Guerra.”
Gun threat leads to arrest
JOLIET — A Joliet man who threatened a woman with a gun during an argument Sunday faces numerous charges, including aggravated assault, according to police.
Tracy Williams, 39, of 409 Rowell Ave., arrived drunk at a residence in the 1000 block of Draper Avenue and got into an argument before being thrown out, police Capt. Tab Jensen said.
“At 10:06 p.m., he returned with a gun, but some of the people there were able to wrestle it away from him,” Jensen said.
He said Officer Chris D’Arcy responded to the call, saw Williams fleeing, and “Williams charged at the officer, so (D’Arcy’s) canine pursued and bit Williams before he was taken into custody.”
After being treated, Williams charged with aggravated assault, aggravated unlawful use of a weapon, possession of a firearm by a gang member, unauthorized possession of a firearm, criminal trespass, obstructing police and resisting arrest.
