PORT BARRINGTON – Two Port Barrington men are scheduled to appear in court later this month on burglary and theft charges, according to the McHenry County Sheriff’s Office.

Jordan R. Grizzel and Brett Rich, both 18, were charged with burglary, theft and criminal trespass to vehicle on July 20.

Deputies were called to a subdivision in Port Barrington on July 20 after a resident reported two suspicious people on his property near his vehicles, according to a news release. Two men matching the description of the caller were later found by police nearby.

Officers found several stolen items from multiple vehicles in that area in their possession, police said. They were breaking into unlocked cars and stealing items.

Grizzel remains at the McHenry County Jail on a $25,000 bond.

Rich posted 10 percent of his $45,000 bond on Wednesday and was released.

They are scheduled to appear in court Aug. 20 and Aug. 19, respectively.
