HINSDALE — Burr Ridge police have arrested a man in connection with the burglary of a home on May 22.
Kenneth N. Jackson, 53, whose last known address is 9819 South Keeler, Oak Lawn, was taken into custody by Burr Ridge and Hinsdale police at 3:45 a.m. Friday in the area of 57th and Elm streets in Hinsdale.
A Burr Ridge officer received minor injuries as a result of Jackson resisting arrest and a short foot chase.
Jackson is accused of entering a home in the first block of Shiloh Court in Burr Ridge at about 1 a.m. on May 22 and taking cash and jewelry. A search of a home in the 9800 block of Keeler, Oak Lawn, led investigators find evidence from the May 22 burglary.
Burr Ridge police said Friday’s arrest is the result of a long investigation that involved cooperation between Burr Ridge detectives and officers from the Hinsdale, Orland Park, Oak Lawn and Highland Park police departments.
Jackson was taken to DuPage County Jail, where he remained held on a $10,000 bond Monday. He is charged with residential burglary, a Class 1 felony, aggravated battery to a police officer, a Class 2 felony, possession of stolen property, a Class 3 felony, and resisting a peace officer, a Class A misdemeanor.
When taken into custody, Jackson was in possession of several items that the Burr Ridge and Hinsdale police believe are stolen. These departments are seeking assistance in identifying jewelry and flatware that may have been taken from homes during the last week.
Police believe Jackson to be a prolific burglar. He was arrested in 2009 in connection with more than 20 burglaries to homes in North Shore communities, including Highland Park, Winnetka and Northfield.
