Former real estate agent pleads guilty to burglaries in Glen Ellyn, Wheaton

A former real estate agent on Nov. 9 pleaded guilty to residential burglaries in Glen Ellyn and Wheaton.

Jamie Detwiler, 39, of the zero to 100 block of West Hattendorf Avenue, Roselle, pleaded guilty to residential burglary as part of a plea agreement. The case was continued to Dec. 20 for pre-sentencing investigation. She is a former Bloomingdale resident.

According to court records, on Sept. 23, 2016, Detwiler allegedly took a woman's diamond ring from a house in the 600 block of Lake Road in Glen Ellyn. On Sept. 29, 2016, Detwiler allegedly took a gold necklace with a diamond pendant from a house in the 1800 block of West Creekside Drive in Wheaton. Both pieces of jewelry were worth more than $500.

As part of the plea agreement, theft charges against Detwiler were dropped.

“It is alleged that Ms. Detwiler used her position as a Realtor to gain access to her victim’s home and once inside stole jewelry, including a diamond pendant necklace,” DuPage County State's Attorney Robert Berlin had said in a news release announcing her arrest. “As anyone who has bought or sold a home can tell you, the process can be very stressful. People count on Realtors to help them through this stressful time, not to rummage through their home in search of valuables."
