Boystown Man Accused of Stealing 2 Phones On Boat Occupied By Just 5 People

Marine Unit officers arrested Jordan Lombardo on Lake Michigan Sunday evening, police said.
If you’re gonna steal two phones, you probably shouldn’t do it while you’re cruising on a boat with just four other people. But that’s what 20-year-old Boystown resident Jordan Lombardo is accused of doing.

Lombardo and four other men were on the Aqua Endeavor near Edgewater Beach when two of his fellow passengers noticed that their phones were missing around 8 p.m. Sunday, the victims said.

“Everyone met in the cockpit of the boat and searched through each other's bags when they discovered that Lombardo was in possession of the phones,” according to police records.

The boat’s captain dropped anchor and radioed for the Chicago Police Department Marine Unit, which boarded the Aqua Endeavor and took Lombardo into custody.

Prosecutors charged Lombardo with two counts of theft. He is free on a $1,500 I-Bond.

Update September 12: A man who claims to have been on the boat insists that there were "more than 10 people" on the boat "that day."

  1. This guy is "hands down" to be the recipient of the dumbest criminal for 2017. Wonder if he told the other four occupants that the fish ate the phones along with his homework.

  2. Should also note, phones had been found in his bag earlier in the day and he gave them back. When *Jordan found the phones* he gave them all back, but someone called the cops anyways. 4 other boats were tied up to the boat as well each with 5+ people aboard. Just wanted to add missing facts to the story.

  3. LOL. Just saw that little twit in Peet's coffee a few days ago charging his phone but not buying any products.

  4. Magnificent!
    Just outstanding stupidity.
    Jordan, you are the hero of shoe-size IQs worldwide. Cannot make this up.

  5. It was a lot more than 5 people on these boats. Additionally more than 5 rafted up. A lot of facts here are incorrect and everything was blown way out of proportion.

    I am the first mate on one of the boats and can assure you that many facts here are incorrect. I would encourage the author to do a better job.

    1. Ahoy! Dust off your reading skills, matey! The author clearly cites the police report and court records. We landlubbers call that "reporting."

  6. I'm glad he's so stupid and was caught.
    Kudos to the captain who dropped anchor and radioed for the police.

    1. My guess is they threw napkins in the air together at Showtunes the night before and "connected" via their co-dependent love of Madonna and/or Cher.

  8. “Everyone met in the cockpit of the boat and searched through each other's bags" no trust there ha?

  9. Ah yes, the Aqua Endeavor. Sure as day turns into evening at Belmont Harbor, one can count on it flying down the channel between G and H docks, its Speedo clad guests grinding to the blaring disco music while its captain remains gleefully oblivious to the common courtesy of the "no wake" rule.

    1. Could not agree more, the prep is representative of the this boat owner and his guests. They create havoc on the water, in the harbor, even in the parking lot and park. Loud music, thongs, mooning other boaters, frontal nudity (not hot), waking and just general drunken obnoxious behavior.

  10. An I-Bond for the Speedo-clad IPhone Bandit.

    1. Oh man... going into Cook County wearing just a Speedo. No wonder he's crying.

  11. Why not chared with mislayed property like everyone else?

  12. He pleads his case on his Facebook page. One of his friends defends him by saying "Jordan will twerk, but not steal" so obviously you have it all wrong! 😀

  13. Couldn't have happened to a nicer group of boaters.

  14. Although he still has to attend court, and decide to plea guilty or not guilty, and if he selects judge or jury trial, and if he is convicted or not, we shall see. But considering he works as he admits for T-Mobile , maybe this is something T-Mobile Corporate should be notified of just in case, to keep an eye on him. Of course every thief in the world we deny it each and every time they steal, but we'll have to wait to hear how this one plays out in court, wish it could be Judge Judy, cause she would get to the bottom of it. Not our Let 'em Go Luckman.

  15. I wonder if this is the same boat the wanna-be police officer impersonator who works for Walsh security claims to own. Sad life he has to pretend he is a classy, boat owner and a cop, both of which he isn't, all to attract the young ones who are too dumb to realize the deceptive life he lives.
