Among the items inventoried by police upon arresting the pair were: U.S. mail addressed to a woman in the 3700 block of Wayne; a box delivered to a resident of the 3000 block of Sheffield; Moen bathroom fixtures; individually-wrapped shirts; blankets; a Britax car seat travel bag; a collection of children’s books; and stuffed animals.
Prior to his 2009 conviction, Maldonado received a 6 year sentence for burglary in 2006, an 8 year sentence for burglary in 2002, a 6 year sentence for attempted burglary in 1999, a 6 year sentence for burglary in 1996, and three 4-year sentences in 1987 for two attempted burglaries and one narcotics violation.
Maldonado is the second career criminal to go to Stateville this year for stealing stuffed animals in our area. Rhygien Alibegg, 58, received a 3-year prison term in January for stealing a bag of stuffed animals from a Boystown garage last summer.
