    Burglary ring shut down, cops say
    October  2006
    Itasca
    police have charged eight Florida men with allegedly stealing $500,000
    worth of toner cartridges from a warehouse, shutting down what
    authorities said was a “highly trained” ring of burglars.The men were
    caught taking the cartridges from the Nippon Express warehouse in the
    1300 block of Hamilton Parkway about 9:55 p.m. Saturday, said Itasca
    Police Chief Scott Heher. The men were being watched by a multiagency
    task force started after police in Wood Dale suspected the men of a
    burglary Sept. 10.In that burglary, in which the men have not been
    charged, $700,000 worth of plasma TVs were stolen from Mitsui-Soko USA,
    Inc., a warehouse in the 700 block of Mark Street that forwards freight
    to businesses, said Wood Dale Deputy Chief Greg Vesta.The men are
    suspects in another burglary in Addison earlier this year, Heher said.
    Police suspect the men were selling stolen merchandise on the black
    market and are investigating whether the men had local contacts, he
    said.The men knew they were being watched, and ran
    “countersurveillance” on police, although police knew they were being
    watched, Heher said.”These were highly trained, highly sophisticated
    burglars,” said Heher. The men, who are all from south Florida, were
    transported to the DuPage County Jail and held on $1 million
    bail.Charged with burglary were Roberto Roque Castillo, 40; Felipe
    Castell Jr., 30; Rigoberto Fernandez, 39; Adalberto Valdes, 39;
    Geovanni Gonzalez, 34; Francisco Perez, 28; Armando Fernandez, 24; and
    Otto Guerra, 36.Police have issued a warrant for Andres Lozano, 23, of
    Boca Raton, Fla.The task force included investigators in Addison,
    Bensenville, Roselle, Elk Grove Village, the DuPage County sheriff’s
    and state’s attorney’s offices, the FIAT response team, U.S. Marshal’s
    Office Great Lakes Task Force and the FBI-O’Hare Airport Office.
