According to Division Chief Mike Dudlo of the Burbank Police department, officers were dispatched to Burbank Auto Sales, 5249 W 79th Street, a little past 6 a.m. in response to a motion alarm that had been triggered inside the business.
Dudlo said a veteran officer, who was training a new recruit, were first to arrive on scene and spotted two men in the parking lot.
The men were identified by police as Daniel Taylor, 54, of Chicago and Michael Dominguez, 40, of Bourbonnais.
According to Dudlo, Dominguez was arrested on scene while Taylor fled in a Chevrolet HHR. The Chevy was stopped by other units a short time later near State Road and Long Avenue.
Dudlo said proceeds from the business including checks, tools and a safe were discovered on both individuals and inside the vehicle. Dudlo also said both men made admissions after being questioned.
Dudlo said investigators are looking for a third man who may have been involved in the alleged burglary. Taylor and Dominguez both implicated another individual but according to Dudlo, police did not find him on scene and only the pair were captured on camera by the business's video surveillance system.
According to Dudlo, the pair is wanted by Carol Stream, Elmhurst, Bridgeview and Alsip in connection to a string of burglaries of self-storage facilities. Another 16 north suburban police agencies are looking into a pair for similar crimes. According to Dudlo, Dominguez is a former employee of Life Storage.
Taylor and Dominguez have each been charged with one count of burglary stemming from the Burbank incident. Both appeared at the Bridgeview Courthouse Wednesday for a bond hearing. Taylor is being held in lieu of $75,000 bail. Dominguez is being held without bond.
Dominguez is due back in court July 20. Taylor's next appearance is scheduled for Aug. 18.
