ROCK FALLS – Police have arrested a third suspect in a Jan. 23 home invasion in rural Rock Falls. A fourth suspect is still at large.
The Whiteside County Sheriff's Department said today that Jordan Woosley, 22, of Sterling, was taken into custody in Denton, Texas, just before midnight Saturday. After the Sheriff's Department received leads about Woosley's whereabouts, deputies contacted Denton police, who made the arrest.
Woosley this morning waived extradition, according to a news release from the Sheriff's Department. Officials plan to bring Woosley to Whiteside County later, the release said.
According to Whiteside County's online court records, Woosley pleaded guilty to misdemeanor theft in 2010 and possession of drug paraphernalia in 2013.
Dalton Q. Chattic, 20, and Jordan D. Coy, 21, both of Fulton, are in jail on $100,000 bond each. They are charged with home invasion, a felony that carries 6 to 30 years in prison.
Officials are still looking for Dominique DeJesus, 42, of Sterling.
Chattic was arrested Tuesday, and Coy was arrested Friday after being questioned at the Sheriff's Department.
About 2 a.m. Jan. 23, four men forced their way into the home; inside was a man and a small child, deputies say. A weapon was involved, but officials have declined to describe it.
The occupants didn't appear to know the men, Whiteside County Sheriff's Detective Sgt. John Booker said.
The DeJesus warrant has been issued nationwide; his bond is set at $500,000 because of an extensive criminal history, Booker said.
Anyone with information on the whereabouts of DeJesus can call the sheriff's office at 815-772-4044 or Whiteside County Crime Stoppers at 815-625-7867.
