A Batavia suspect had turned himself in after seeing a social media post about him, according to police.

Tobias F. Granberg, 20-year-old, was charged with felony burglary charges after he confessed to having stolen credit cards, electronics, and other items from two separate homes on the 700 blocks of Houston Street and 300 blocks of Whipple Street. Granberg had reportedly tried to use the credit cards several times and successfully purchased items nine times.

Kane County Prosecutors have upgraded Granberg's charges to felony residential burglary charges after he robbed a relative's home.

Granberg was booked into Kane County Jail and later released after posting $5,000 bond.
