Police: Arrest made in home invasion

STERLING – A Chicago man accused of being part of a home invasion in Sterling turned himself in to the Whiteside County Sheriff’s Department just after 1 p.m. Tuesday.

Myron D. Cureton, 36, is accused of breaking into a home, along with another man, in the 800 block of Avenue D in Sterling just before 6 a.m. Saturday.

Police say the home is occupied by one man, who described the second intruder as a black male with a thin build, shorter than 5 feet, 11 inches.

According to police, the resident said the two men entered as Cureton brandished a firearm, made a verbal command, and struggled with the resident as he tried to leave. The resident suffered minor injuries, police said.

Police said nothing was taken from the home, and they were unable to release information on the verbal command they say Cureton made.

Cureton is in Whiteside County Jail on a $100,000 bond. He faces up to 30 years in prison, if convicted.

Anyone with information about the second man’s identity or wherabouts is asked to call the Sterling Police Department at 815-632-6640 or Whiteside County Crimestoppers at 815-625-7867, or send tips to tipline@sterling-il.gov.
