Two Des Plaines men will face burglary charges following a surveillance operation conducted by the Park Ridge Police Department, according to a statement from Des Plaines police on Friday.
Mariusz Poplawski, 24, of Des Plaines, and Sebastian Dybala, 23, of Des Plaines, were arrested after police saw them rob a condo building, police stated.
Poplawski and Dybala were put under surveillance, police stated, after being identified as active burglars on the Northwest side of Chicago and in the Northwest suburbs.
Police followed Poplawski and Dybala to a condominium complex on the 8700 block of W. Bryn Mar Avenue on Feb. 7, according to the report, where Dybala waited in the vehicle while Poplawski burglarized the condo building.
Des Plaines police cleared four residential burglaries and the investigation was not complete, according to the report.
“The two offenders are suspected to be involved with several other recent burglaries throughout the area, and were extremely active prior to their arrest,” Des Plaines police stated. “This is an ongoing investigation and there is not a final count on how many charges the offenders will actually be charged with.”
