A Crystal Lake man accused of entering a woman's home through a second-story window and stealing two bras remained at the McHenry County Jail Friday on a $100,000 bond.

David L. Khollman, 49, made a brief court appearance by video Friday when a McHenry County Judge set his bond and appointed the public defender's office to represent him.

A bond form filed in McHenry County court Friday morning indicated the Khollman lacked means to post cash bail.

McHenry County sheriff's officers arrested Khollman Thursday morning after a resident was alerted to suspicious activity in her home at 1:21 a.m., according to a news release.

Security camera footage from the home shows a person with long hair and a dress crawling through a bedroom window. The person then turned on the light and went into the woman's closet, video footage shows.

Khollman is accused of stealing two bras from the woman's home before leaving through the same window, records show. He is charged with disorderly conduct, residential burglary, and criminal trespass to a residence.

Khollman's arrests in connection with similar accusations date back to 1994.

In 2001, he was sentenced to 10 years in prison for entering three Burtons Bridge homes and stealing the owner's bras, Northwest Herald archives show.

More recently, the McHenry County Sheriff's Office arrested Khollman in September after receiving a report of an unknown person wearing a dress and carrying a purse, walking through the yard, and peering into a window at a Burtons Bridge home.

The assistant McHenry County public defender appointed to Khollman's case was out of the office Friday and could not immediately be reached for comment.

Khollman is due back in court for a bond hearing on Wednesday morning.
