Skokie police said Carlo Settecase, 21, of Skokie was working as an overnight switchboard operator at the department store when he was caught on camera Sept. 5 putting $30,000 worth of items into a mail tote and placing it in the mail room, the Chicago Sun-Times reported Tuesday.
Officer Tammy Jacobsen said Settecase took the tote home the following day.
Police said Settecase told officers his crimes were inspired by the TV shows "The Sopranos," "Dexter" and "Breaking Bad" because the characters on those shows evaded capture by police.
