EDWARDSVILLE — An Alton man was charged Monday in Madison County Circuit Court with theft over $500, a Class 3 felony, according to a press release from Madison County Sheriff John D. Lakin.
Police identified the suspect as Duncan Thomas Jornlin, 20, of the 1400 block of State Street.
At approximately 1:50 p.m. Oct. 2, sheriff’s deputies responded to the Dairy Queen at 5785 Godfrey Road, Godfrey, in regard to a theft. It was determined an employee had an iPhone stolen from a common area shared by employees only. A sheriff’s deputy initiated an investigation into the theft report and discovered the premises were monitored by video surveillance.
Investigative efforts resulted in the identification of Jornlin, a co-worker of the victim, who was captured on video surveillance committing the theft. He was later contacted at his residence, where was arrested without incident for the theft.
Jornlin was remanded to the Madison County Jail pending a formal review of facts by the Madison County State’s Attorney’s Office. He remains in custody.
The warrant and information on Jornlin was signed by Judge Jennifer Hightower. Bond was set at $35,000.
