YORKVILLE – An Aurora man has been arrested and charged with child abduction after leaving the Kendall County Courthouse following a custody dispute.

Ramon L. Loza, 48, of the 300 block of Evans Avenue in Aurora, was charged with child abduction, a Class 4 felony, on Dec. 20. A warrant was issued for Loza’s arrest and he was taken into custody on Jan. 2.

If convicted, Loza could face up to three years in prison.

Kendall County Sheriff's deputies responded to a call on Dec. 11 at the Kendall County Courthouse, 807 W. John St., for a report of a custody dispute, according to a Friday, Jan. 3 news release from the sheriff's office. Police learned that a subject had been ordered by a judge in open court to turn over custody of his juvenile child but the subject left the courthouse with the juvenile against the order of the judge.

The juvenile was located by Aurora Police Department officers shortly thereafter and custody was properly transferred, sheriff's officials said in the news release.

Loza is currently being held at the Kendall County Jail, according to jail records.

Kendall County Chief Judge Robert Pilmer set bond for Loza at $25,000, according to court records. Loza would have to post $2,500 to be released from jail and was ordered to wear a GPS monitoring system by Pilmer.

Loza is due back in court 9 a.m. Monday, Jan. 6 at the Kendall County courthouse.
