A serial thief who ‘repeatedly thumbed his nose at the law’ has been jailed for 22 years for stealing a TV remote, the dailymail.co.uk reports
Eric Bramwell, of Melrose Park, Chicago, was found guilty in November of burglary.
Police were able to link Bramwell to the crime after they found a glove, dropped at the scene, which had traces of his DNA.
Prosecutors found that, because of his long criminal history, he was eligible for up to 30 years in jail.
Bramwell allegedly committed a series similar thefts in nearby apartment complexes nearby, including several buildings in Lisle, Aurora, Bloomingdale, Downers Grove and Oakbrook Terrace, prosecutors said.
