REDUCED | THEFT/POSSESSION OF BURGLARY TOOLS/BURGLARY – State v. Mr. C. (Peoria City Court No. CR2003-000888): Mr. C. was initially arrested because a victim claimed that she observed 2 males removing lug nuts and trying to steal 4 wheel covers from her vehicle. Mr. C. was arrested and charged with Burglary, Possession of Burglary Tools, and Theft. We were able to show the prosecutor that due to the low value of the property ($285.00) that the case should be routed to the City Prosecutor’s Office for misdemeanor charges. We then negotiated to have him charged with a single misdemeanor Theft. Mr. C. paid a $350.00 fine and served no jail time.
