Police charged a third man this week in connection with a liquor store burglary.

On March 13, two New Lenox teens were charged with burglary after police said they broke into a local liquor store and stole a case of Icehouse beer.

This week, Henry R. Oram, 18, of the 14000 block of Spencer Road in New Lenox, was also charged with burglary. Deputy Chief Bob Pawlisz of the New Lenox Police Department said that interviews with the first two teens led them to believe Oram was the getaway driver.

In July 2011, Oram was from Noga's Lawn Care in the 900 block of Country Creek Drive.

Earlier, Ryan T. Dominski, 17, of the 700 block of Bentley Road, and David A. Feehery, 18, of the 300 block of Williams Street, were both charged with burglary and possession of burglary tools. Both were given a $2,500 bail and awaited court dates.

Pawlisz said the teens used a crowbar to break in through the rear door at Village Liquor Mart, 1306 N. Cedar Road.

Their entry triggered an alarm at 2:16 a.m. Tuesday, March 13. Police responded but the teens were gone by the time they arrived.

Pawlisz said investigators identified Dominski and Feehery using video surveillance. The teens were taken to Will County Jail that night.

Icehouse?!? Why would anyone steal that swill?
I'd Rather Not March 16, 2012 at 01:11 PM
Agreed! If you're going to risk a burglary conviction breaking into a liquor store, at least go for the good stuff...
AV March 16, 2012 at 01:34 PM
I am laughing my butt off about that. I mean if you are going to risk a jail stint, make it worth it.

They look like a couple of genius'. Pay someone walking in $20 to buy you some beer you idiots. Now its gonna cost their parents $2500 each to bail them out, and probably a small fortune in court costs to keep them out of jail. I'm betting this is not the last time we see these two....

Their parents should be in the jail cell right next to them. They brought them into the world and raised them. They should be held accountable for their actions. If one of my daughters did something like this, I should be sitting right next to them in a jail cell because I failed them and society. Also, people like this don't care what happens to themselves or their lives but maybe if they see their mom sitting in a jail cell because of what they did, maybe they might think twice about doing it again...maybe.

You're shallow and ignorant. You know nothing of the parents or the families. And by your words, it's plainly evident that you know nothing at all. Maybe it will soon be one of your kids. Then you will no longer be shallow and ignorant. Then we all see if you feel the same way. The entire situation is sad. And so are you!

JM, You are SOO wrong. Just because some dumba**es decided to steal doesn't mean that the parents are bad parents. I am a prime example of that, I have 3 children, all of my children have been raised the same way, Don't steal, Dont lie, respect elders, use table manners etc. Well wouldn't you know it one of my children does everything BUT what shes suppose to do. I have asked for help within the school system, the police department, she is in therapy, we have taken everything away from her, I have done EVERYTHING a parent can do to correct this behavior!! So now when (and i mean WHEN) my child lands in jail, your saying I should sit next to her, thats bs! I did my job, sometimes in this world there are bad seeds!!!!!!

(PTD)- So let me get this straight, I'm shallow and ignorant because I'm sick of all the crime in the world. All we do as a society is complain about today’s youth. And your solution is to say "the entire situation is sad". That's it's! Of course it's sad. If you're going to criticize my idea, at least come up with something yourself. What about the victims? People work so hard to make an honest living for themselves and their families. They empty savings accounts so they can start a small business or buy a home. All that just so someone can come along and take it away or hurt it. What if the store owner was in the liquor store when these kids decided to rob it and someone got killed? It happens every day. I’m just sick of it! And why aren’t you! Name calling is a perfect example why we as a country are struggling so hard to move forward. You’re so concerned with putting me in my place, because you don’t agree with my opinion and to make yourself feel better, you offer no solution at all…other than feeling sad about the entire situation. (LC)- Your situation is a perfect example of why we need to talk about this as a society. Your situation is not uncommon. But to throw up our hands and say oh well, I did all I can as a parent, go wreak havoc on the world, is not the answer. All I’m saying is we need to try something different. Or we can keep doing the same thing. .

@JMofNL - Your comment is disturbingly offensive! How dare you accuse the parents just because they gave birth to these kids. What a very sad narrow minded thought! I do agree that parents have a responisbility in teaching their children the difference between right and wrong. And its a shame that this obviously isn't the first time they have broken the law. However, sadly, there are a lot of great parents, who just have bad rebel kids who knowlingly make the wrong decision despite their parents efforts. Peer pressure and low-self esteem can undo all the parents hard work if their children become friends with the wrong people. instead of using the "the strong arm" and "guilt " as part of your parenting method, I suggest parents adding "encouraging self-worth" and "express being proud of them" techniques along with teaching right from wrong. It will do way more wonders for children in the long, by giving them the self-empowerment to stay away from the bad peer pressures out there when their parents aren't around.

Sad, so absolutely sad.

So the question of the hour ... is bad behavior (tendencies to not follow rules or laws) a learned behavior or inherited/hereditary behavior? Is it a result of environmental variables or is it set in stone regardless? If you are saying it's decided at birth and follows a person throughout their life, then surely there will be a way to test for it someday and remove those people from society early in life so that the rest of society can be productive and complimentary. If you are saying it's learned behavior and a result of environmental variables, then there are ways to discourage that behavior from even starting, or change that behavior once it has started. I believe it's learned/environmental. If I've observed anything in my life, it is no 2 people are alike, especially kids. They may not like the same food, same drink, same shows same music, same sports, same downtime activities, and they definitely don't learn the same or respond to the same rewards and punishments. And yes, rewards for good behavior are just as important as punishment for bad behavior.

To JM: I never suggested or even implied that the wrongdoers should not be made to account for their wrongdoings. We have a criminal justice system for that. My comment was in direct response to your shallow, ignorant and summary persecution of their parents.

@ mike hawk- don't dragons eat their young?
VF April 11, 2012 at 09:38 PM
JM....... You have no idea what the hell you are talking about.... lol...... As far as one of the kids, he has NO RECORD and was active in the New Lenox Food Pantry and the Day Break Homeless shelter working and providing breakfast for the homeless people. Kids make mistakes.. You obviously do NOT have kids, especially teenagers..... Who are you to judge. I think that's up to God! Judgement by you will send YOU TO HELL!!!!
VF April 11, 2012 at 09:46 PM
I KNOW WHO YOU ARE AV........ LET'S MEET SO WE CAN DISCUSS YOUR SON'S CONDUCTS..... I KNOW THEM ALL. KEEP LAUGHING!!!!! IT WON'T BE LONG BEFORE YOU ARE FACING A LEGAL SITUATION! THEN IT WILL BE MY TURN TO LAUGH
VF April 11, 2012 at 09:53 PM
Who are you to judge???? I'm on this website all of the time trying to console the parents of the children that made a mistake. Yes, actually the one child is an extremely smart child and has made many contributions to New Lenox by his own decision. So, really........what have you done to help the less fortunate lately? Was this a stupid mistake?? Absolutely. However, the parents are not at fault for what the current teenagers are doing. YES........ it IS the last time you will see atleast one of the two........... He is my son! I brought him up with values and always made him aware of what is right and what is wrong. So, as fara as I'm concerned.... you have NO CLUE! Paying someone to buy you beer is illegal as well you idiot!
gtsdf May 20, 2012 at 06:47 AM
And parents fault not even close you dnt know anything your talking bout
LM May 29, 2012 at 03:54 AM
It's sad you're all sitting here arguing over the Internet when you can be working on helping your children who are making mistakes no matter how involved they are with food pantries or whatever else. All kids mess up. I believe you are all correct in some way. Stop arguing here though. It's not helping anyone.
