After evidence from a burglary investigation was examined, Bolingbrook police linked a suspect to six-month old case and arrested the alleged offender during a routine traffic stop on Wednesday, according to Lt. Mike Rompa.
Pablo Gonzalez-Arellano, 33, 204 Valley, Bolingbrook, was arrested on an outstanding warrant at about 7:30 p.m. Wednesday after he was stopped by Bolingbrook police, Rompa said.
Gonzalez-Arellano was linked to a residential burglary in the 400 block of Cumberland that occurred on April 13, 2013, Rompa said. At that time, he said police responded to a call for help from the homeowners, who were gone between the hours of 11 a.m. and 5 p.m.
"When they returned home, they discovered a broken window and an envelope containing $2,000 was missing from a dresser drawer," Rompa said. "Nothing else was disturbed, damaged or missing from the home."
Rompa said the scene was processed by an evidence technician and the incident remained under investigation.
"During the course of the investigation, detectives were able to link Pablo Gonzalez-Arellano to the scene—after the evidence was processed," Rompa said. "A warrant was subsequently issued."
And Gonzalez-Arellano was picked up on Wednesday night—six months after he allegedly broke into the home on Cumberland Lane.
