Authorities have charged an Edwardsville man in a suspect burglary case from Bethalto earlier this month.  30 year old William Kavanaugh of the 800 block of Holyoake Road is charged with burglary and is being held in the Madison County Jail after his arrest last week.

Kavanaugh was arrested last week after the Madison County Sheriff’s Department investigated the report of a suspicious vehicle in the 9100 of the Blue Ridge Road.  Police later found the vehicle on Storey Lane near Fosterburg Road in Alton  and traced it to Kavanaugh, who was later arrested.   Authorities say they found items inside the truck that were allegedly stolen from a home under construction in the 4600 block of McCoy Road in Bethalto.  Bond has been set for Kavanaugh at $50,000.
