Some cars were damaged, WPD saysEdit Module
A Woodstock man has been charged with a felony in connection with a recent rash of burglaries to vehicles.
Joseph L. Foat, 31, was arrested May 27 and charged with one count of burglary, a Class 2 felony. Additional charges are pending.
Woodstock Police responded to “numerous incidents” of vehicles being burglarized the weekend of May 20, according to a press release from the Woodstock Police Department. Some of the vehicles targeted were locked, “which has not been the typical modus operandi in the recent past,” the press release said. Most recent vehicle burglaries in Woodstock have involved unlocked cars.
Foat was identified as a suspect by the WPD’s Investigations Division and a warrant was issued for his arrest May 26. In addition to the burglaries, police said Foat damaged some of the cars he allegedly targeted.
Foat was taken into custody without incident May 27 and transported to the McHenry County Jail, where he was being held on $50,000 bond. His next court date is June 12.
