WOODSTOCK – A man on parole when Fox River police arrested him for an attempted break-in has been sentenced to five years in prison.

Zachary C. White, 30, of Elk Grove Village, pleaded guilty Thursday to residential burglary, a Class 1 felony, as part of a plea deal accepted by Judge Sharon Prather.

Police were called to a home on Bradbury Court at 3:30 p.m. Aug. 21 for a report of a man trying to get into a home through the garage. White fled. He later was found in the area and arrested after a brief foot chase, police said.

White also was charged in another residential burglary in the 600 block of Hunters Way.

At the time of his arrest, he was on parole for an armed robbery in Indiana.
