Wilson, of Bartonville, now awaits prosecution on three charges of burglary. He was ordered held on $30,000 bond pending a preliminary hearing August 15.
Video game equipment was stolen from the home on Oaklawn Terrace and a computer and two monitors were stolen from LaSalle School.
Shortly after the school was burglarized a man reported someone had been living in a vacant house he owns in the 500 block of North Highland Street, only a few blocks from the burglarized home and school.
Inside the vacant house, the school’s computer equipment and receipts from a Peoria pawn shop for the stolen video game equipment were found. The receipts had Wilson’s name on them and a warrant was issued for his arrest.
