On Parole For Package Theft, North Side Man Is Charged With 7 Package Thefts

Angel Marquez repeatedly entered North Side apartment buildings to steal packages, police say.
A 39-year-old Rogers Park man, on parole for package theft, has been arrested again, authorities say. For package theft.

Surveillance video showed Angel Marquez repeatedly entering apartment buildings on the North Side to steal packages from mail rooms, police said.

He is charged with seven felony counts of burglary, seven felony counts of theft with a prior conviction and felony possession of heroin.

Marquez was paroled in January after serving half of two concurrent three-year sentences that he received for package theft in Evanston.

The packages he went to prison for in 2015 contained camera film and a $40 umbrella.

After his latest arrest, Cook County Judge Stephanie Miller decided to let Marquez go on a $50,000 I-Bond.

Thankfully, state officials last week revoked Marquez’s parole, so he’s sitting in Stateville prison, serving out the balance of his previous conviction. He’s scheduled to be released in January 2019.
