Man took ex’s stuff, put it in her car
A Chicago man wanted on felony charges including burglary and theft will be held without bail when he is arrested.
Tazell Sills, 28, was charged after his ex-girlfriend reported that her home was broken into and several items taken.
The victim told Detective Richard McClelland she heard Sills knocking on her door but wouldn’t let him inside. She went to her grandmother’s and when she returned the door was open and items including her TV, videogame and Toshiba tablet were gone.
Days later, she found the items in the trunk of her car. She said Sills had a key to the car that he had refused to return.
Man on roof of home after metals
Dishun Pickens, 20, was on the roof of a vacant home when Patrolman Lucius Mayes caught him removing a metal mast and wires from a nearby power line, court records state.
Pickens, of 1967 Connecticut St., has been charged with two counts of attempted theft and misdemeanor mischief.
Sgt. Brian Farrow spoke to a NIPSCO representative who said the company spent about $2,000 to repair damage caused by the theft, the probable cause affidavit states.
A warrant has been issued for Pickens.
Man walked out with cash register
Surveillance video from a Miller business showed a man with a tattoo carrying a cash register out the door during early morning hours July 19.

Turner located Pellegrino, a resident of Miller Beach Terrace, and recovered the cash register.
The business owner said about $1,500 was missing from the register and damages to his property totaled about $800.
