The final of four teens was sentenced Monday for burglarizing the Islamic Center of Naperville.

Mark Domingo was sentenced to serve 21 days in DuPage County jail and three years' probation, similar to his three co-defendants, for felony burglary.

The 19-year-old Naperville man also agreed to pay $2,000 in restitution.

Police installed a surveillance camera in summer 2006 inside the mosque at 450 Olesen Drive after officials complained of as many as 10 break-ins in which money was stolen from a donation box.

One week later, on July 21, 2006, police spotted Domingo and his three friends leaving the building. Domingo and a second teen, Andrew Talty, 19, of Plainfield, were arrested outside the mosque.

Two other teens led police on a car chase that ended in Hinsdale when they crashed. Three police officers received minor injuries.

Domingo was the final teen to be sentenced. Talty and Charles Htun, 20, of Naperville, spent time in DuPage County jail and also were placed on three years probation. Each also paid $2,000 restitution.

David Henderson, 20, of Naperville, was sentenced to a prison boot-camp program and is on parole. He and Htun, who drove, were involved in the car chase.

None of the young men were charged with a hate crime. Prosecutors characterized the burglary as a crime of opportunity, not one motivated by faith or religion.
