WHEATON, Ill. (Sun-Times Media Wire) -

A 29-year-old man has been sentenced to eight years in prison, after being convicted of burglarizing a room at an independent senior living retirement community in west suburban Naperville, where he worked as a housekeeper.

But Marvin Andujar could avoid serving time in prison, if he is enrolled in and successfully completes a “boot-camp-style” program for first-time felony offenders run by the Illinois Department of Corrections, the Naperville Sun is reporting.

Andujar, of the 900 block of Edwards Street in Aurora, pleaded guilty in DuPage County Circuit Court to a felony charge of residential burglary. That followed his Jan. 20 surrender and arrest in connection with a series of burglaries at Monarch Landing, at 2255 N. Monarch Drive, near Ferry Road and Route 59 in Naperville.

Paul Darrah, spokesman for DuPage County State’s Attorney Robert B. Berlin, confirmed Andujar was sentenced Tuesday in the case. Judge Robert G. Kleeman accepted Andujar’s plea and imposed the eight-year prison term, Darrah said.

Kleeman also approved Andujar for enrollment in the state’s “impact incarceration program,” or boot camp, Darrah said. The judge also placed Andujar on two years of probation and ordered him to pay $732 in fines and legal fees, Darrah said.

Andujar worked in Monarch Landing’s housekeeping department from Aug. 13, 2012 until Aug. 20 of last year. He had access to the keys to residents’ rooms.

The Sun last winter reported police had identified a suspect in 10 burglaries that occurred there during the spring and summer of 2013. A police spokesman said a total of $23,430 in money and jewelry was stolen from the community’s mostly-elderly residents.

Written police reports showed the burglaries occurred between May 5 and Aug. 1, during different times of the day and night. Nine were to apartments on the 2000 block of Audubon Avenue, and the 10th on the 2000 block of Butterfly Lane.

Cash in amounts ranging from $80 to $250 was stolen in four of the burglaries. The others were thefts of jewelry ranging in value from $1,000 to $5,500.

Andujar, over a 10-year period, was arrested several times by Aurora for driving under the influence of alcohol and being a drunken pedestrian, among other crimes.
