In less than 48 hours during September 2016, Terrell Bommon burglarized a cellular store and pulled off two separate robberies in which he took phones from women under threat of violence. 

He pled guilty last November to two counts of robbery and one count of burglary. Judge Joseph Clapps sentenced him to three concurrent terms of four years. Bommon walked out of prison 16 days later after receiving the state’s 50% “good behavior” sentence reduction and getting credit for time spent in jail awaiting trial.

Now, he’s facing a fresh burglary charge. Bommon, 32, stole a $100 flip phone and twelve phone cases after kicking out the glass door of Cricket Wireless, 168 North State on June 9th, prosecutors said. Store employees identified him in a photo line-up, according to police.

Judge Arthur Willis handed down a recognizance bond for the burglary charge, but Bommon’s being held in jail on a warrant from the Illinois Department of Corrections. He will go back to prison until Sept. 5th of next year if the state revokes his parole.

Bommon mugged a woman on the 100 block of South State on Sept. 22nd, 2016. The next day, burglarized a Sprint store on the first block of East Randolph and then mugged another woman on the 1100 block of South State.

Police who arrested Bommon after the second robbery said he was carrying an iPad Pro, an iPhone 6s, and a Samsung Chrome laptop.

State records show Bommon was given a six-year sentence for manufacture-delivery of cocaine in 2007.

He’s due back in court on the parole violation and the new burglary case this week.
