Thu. 6:47 pm: Niles man due in court on charges of forgery, credit card misuse

NILES — A Niles man wanted in connection with thefts from vehicles is due to be arraigned Friday morning in Niles Municipal Court.

Court records show Brandon Haun, 19, of Niles is due in municipal court at 8 a.m. to face charges of receiving stolen property, forgery and a misdemeanor charge of credit card misuse.

A warrant for Haun’s arrest was issued Tuesday by Niles police. He is suspected of several thefts from cars that have occurred in the past few weeks.

In one case, police said a man reported having his wallet taken from his car while it was parked for a funeral at Rossi Funeral Home on Robbins Avenue.

Authorities identified Haun after publicizing surveillance images of a man using a stolen credit card at several businesses in the city.
