IL: Fourth Man Charged with Mosque Break-Ins


Charles Htun likely will celebrate his 20th birthday this weekend in DuPage County jail.

The Naperville man was sentenced Thursday to 90 days of periodic imprisonment in DuPage County Circuit Court for his hand in the July 21, 2006 break-in at the Islamic Center of Naperville, 450 Olesen Drive.

The mosque had been burglarized almost a dozen times last year, with small amounts of money taken from the offering box in each case.

Police staked out the center that July evening, and witnessed Htun and four accomplices enter and exit the building. Two were arrested on the scene, and Htun and another engaged in a high-speed car chase that ended in a crash near Hinsdale.

Andrew R. Talty, 19, of Plainfield, and Mark C. Domingo, 19, of the Heatherstone neighborhood on Naperville's southwest side, were arrested at the scene.

Talty pleaded guilty to a charge of burglary April 17 and was sentenced to 23 days in DuPage County jail. He also was put on three years probation and ordered to pay $2,000 restitution. (MORE)
