Posted: Updated:

CHAMPAIGN – Illinois State’s Attorney for Champaign County Julia Rietz reports two men from the Champaign-Urbana area have been charged for their roles in a home burglary.

18-year-old Victor Hunt, of Urbana, and 20-year-old Trevoy Fonville were charged for the February 7 burglary of a home in the 700 block of Maple Street in Champaign.

A witness told authorities they heard what sounded like a door being kicked in and saw a man outside 703 Maple Street acting as a lookout for another man who went inside the residence. The witness saw the two men leave the home as he was calling the police.

Champaign Police arrived and brought out a tracking dog to track the suspects. The dog led authorities to the railroad tracks, where a TV that had been stolen from the home was found. Then, the dog led officers to the intersection of Prospect and Vine, where Fonville and Hunt were found and taken into custody.

The witness identified Fonville and Hunt as the burglars based on their clothing and appearances.

In addition to the missing TV, the resident told police her house had been ransacked. A boot print on the door confirmed that entry had been made by someone kicking in the door.

Fonville’s bond has been set at $100,000. His next court date is set for March 8, 2016. Hunt’s bond has been set at $15,000. His next court date is also set for March 8. They have both been charged with Residential Burglary, which is a class 1 felony punishable by up to 15 years of incarceration. 

Until their next court date, both remain custody at the Champaign County Jail.
