BG cops nab three in residential burglary spree
Buffalo Grove police arrested three men on Friday in connection to a string of residential burglaries across the northwest suburbs.
The three, Pablo Martinez, 26, of the 10000 block of Chestnut Avenue in Franklin Park, Oscar Peralta, 22, previously of Chicago, and Jaime A. Jaime, 32, of the 3200 block of south Central Avenue in Cicero, were each charged with one count of Residential Burglary, a Class 1 felony.
Buffalo Grove Police, the North Regional Major Crimes Task Force (NORTAF), and numerous other northwest suburban police departments worked together for months to identify the offenders, conduct surveillance, and eventually make the arrests.
“The time and commitment investigators put forth paid off and will make Buffalo Grove and the surrounding areas, safer,” Buffalo Grove Investigations Commander Tom Reed said. “The teamwork between departments was invaluable; every officer was heavily invested as this crew was believed to be committing crimes in multiple jurisdictions.”
Members from NORTAF witnessed an in-progress residential burglary on Nov. 9 in Buffalo Grove, in the 600 block of Buckthorn Terrace.
NORTAF alerted Buffalo Grove patrol officers and investigators, who responded and assisted. Martinez, Peralta, and Jaime were reportedly seen by police exiting a home and attempting to leave the area in a black Dodge Charger RT.
The three me were charged with the class 1 felony after a traffic stop by Buffalo Grove Police. During the traffic stop, police found property reportedly stolen from the residence.
Additional charges are pending and may be added at a later time. The three men are being held at the Lake County Jail, with an upcoming court date of Nov. 26, at the Lake County Courthouse.
