MORRIS – Surveillance video secured by the Morris Police Department aided in an investigation that led to the indictment of Huy V. Nguyen, 22, of Shorewood.

Nguyen was indicted Wednesday by a Grundy County jury in connection with two Morris burglaries and two others in Bolingbrook and Channahon.

Three of the four burglaries occurred at nail salons, including Angelina’s Nail Salon in Morris, which was broken into last month.

“We were able to secure surveillance tapes from the spa,” Morris Police Chief Brent Dite said Thursday. “Anytime we get video, it definitely assists in the investigation.”

Nguyen was charged with one count of residential burglary, a Class 1 felony, and one count of burglary, a Class 2 felony.

On July 18, an undisclosed amount of money was stolen from Angelina’s Nail Salon in Morris when someone broke through a window and stole cash from the register.

Eight days later, Morris police officers and detectives responded to a residential burglary on Old Stage Road where the suspect, again, forced entry into the home.

Dite said the investigation was a multi-jurisdictional effort and required cooperation from several departments dealing with the related burglaries.

“We have a network in place where all of our detectives work very closely on these cases. All the agencies had a hand in this because each develops information that could be helpful to another agency,” Dite said.

Nguyen is in custody in Will County in connection to the two Will County burglaries.
