A suburban man has been charged with three felony counts of burglary in connection with a series of high-end bicycle thefts across the South Loop.

30-year-old Justin Milos was arrested in an Edgewater apartment complex at 5650 North Sheridan Road yesterday afternoon.

Police credited “community assistance” and surveillance videos with their ability to track Milos down.

A surveillance photo of a bike thief in action was included in a community alert issued by detectives on July 8—and the man bears a striking resemblance to Milos. At the time, police said at least eight premium bicycles had been stolen during burglaries of South Loop garages.

Also shown in the alert were two black men wearing yellow work vests who were believed to be involved in some of the thefts. Those men, 35-45 years old, remain at large.
