Miguel Pena-Gomez, Liliana Nagles-Cuesta, and Angela Posada-Acosta face felony theft charges following an alleged incident at Caputo’s in Addison. The suspects reportedly deceived the victim with a false claim about a winning lottery ticket. Addison Police’s swift response and investigation, in coordination with Streamwood and Elmhurst Police Departments, led to the arrest of the trio in Crystal Lake.

The defendants are scheduled for arraignment on December 11, 2023, and are currently presumed innocent until proven guilty.
