An Aurora man on parole was arrested Monday morning after he broke into a home in St. Charles, police said.
Aric A. Liberati, 35, of the 2300 block of Twilight Drive, was charged with felony residential burglary and misdemeanor criminal damage to property.
Shortly after 10 a.m. Monday, St. Charles police were called to the 2700 block of Turnberry Road after a resident saw a man breaking into his basement. The resident ran upstairs and hid in a bedroom while calling 911, police said.
The caller heard the man pry open a sliding glass door in the basement and go room to room throughout the home, ransacking the house, police said.
Responding officers saw the man, later identified as Liberati, run from the house. They chased him through a nearby wooded area and arrested him along Kirk Road, police said. Liberati was taken to Kane County jail and was scheduled to appear Tuesday afternoon in bond court.
The Illinois Department of Corrections website shows Liberati was released from prison on parole in March after serving about 17 months of a three-year sentence for a drug possession conviction in Cook County.
He’s also been sentenced to prison in several other cases dating back to 1995 in Cook and DuPage counties, including burglary and theft, according to state records.
