A Chicago man was arrested for allegedly entering an elderly woman’s home and dragging through her house, as well as using another man’s Amazon Visa credit card to buy clothes and other goods.

At about 12:15 p.m. Thursday, Angelo Ristick, also known as Sam Mitchell, 32, of Chicago, was arrested in the 300 block of East Ohio Street in Chicago and transferred over to Shorewood police detectives.

Ristick’s last known address was an apartment in the 6300 block of West Belmont Avenue.

On March 16, Ristick allegedly burglarized homes on Helene Street and Caprice Drive in Shorewood, according to a Shorewood police news release.
