Naperville Police Arrest Man for Attempted Burglary

Attempted Burglary

A Naperville man has been charged with burglary after breaking the glass of a liquor store door with a crow bar. The Naperville Police Department responded to Jay’s Liquor store yesterday after a burglar alarm was activated, according to a Naperville Police Department press release.

What Happened?

At around 7:38 a.m., police arrived at the store located at 535 Fairway Drive #139. They found the glass on the back door of the business smashed out. Officers say they then saw Johnny Lee Robinson III crawling through the broken back door with a crow bar in hand. Robinson fled, running through the store, out the front door and across North Aurora Road toward a wooded area.

Robinson tried to run on foot after hiding in the wooded area, but was apprehended by police with no injuries. Nothing was taken from the store.


The 29-year-old was charged with one felony count of burglary and one misdemeanor count of criminal damage to property. Naperville police remind the public that a charge is merely an accusation and a defendant  is presumed innocent unless proven guilty.
