CHICAGO – A Chinese national living in the US illegally was indicted on burglary charges in Chicago on Tuesday, with prosecutors alleging the "one man crime wave" had stolen more than $1 million of goods from homes in the city's wealthy Lincoln Park neighborhood.
Prosecutors said Jicheng "Kevin" Liu is suspected of committing hundreds of burglaries and thefts from homes and that 200 bicycles, 200 strollers, 100 golf clubs, TV sets, jewelry and laptop computers were among the items found at his home and in five other storage lockers, The Chicago Tribune reported.
Authorities also found more than 50 garage door openers in his possession.
Liu has been held in Cook County Jail since March after being charged with cyberstalking, computer fraud and identity theft.
His $100,000 bond was upped to $500,000 bail Tuesday after 12 new burglary charges were added to his growing charge sheet.
