Prosecutors say Doel J. Pizarro was chased down by police who saw him exiting the rear door of Steve Quick Jewelers, 2471 N. Clark, with an accomplice around 1:30AM.

Pizarro was carrying $1,085 cash, a ski mask, and a bag that contained a display tray of 62 rings, a crowbar, and large bolt cutters, according to an officer who was on-scene.

Investigators also found a glove behind the store that matched a glove that Pizarro was wearing, prosecutors said.

Bail for Pizarro has been set at $25,000. The second offender remains at large.

Court records indicate that Pizarro is also awaiting resolution of another case that accuses him of filing a false vehicle theft report, resisting police, and disorderly conduct last summer.

He received 2 years probation after pleading guilty to aggravated unlawful use of a weapon in 2010, according to court records.
