DuPage County State’s Attorney Robert B. Berlin announced last week that one of three men accused of possessing a stolen vehicle in Elmhurst has been sentenced to seven years in the Illinois Department of Corrections.

Tyrone Wilson, 19, of 5721 S. Chappel, Chicago, appeared in court last week where he entered a blind plea of guilty to one count of Possession of a Stolen Motor Vehicle, a Class 2 Felony in front of Judge John Kinsella, who handed down the sentence.

The cases against Wilson’s co-defendants, Deonte Daniel, 21, of 6954 S. Clyde, Chicago, and Deanthony Webb, 24, of 6721 S. Paxton, Chicago, are still pending.

On Monday, Nov. 27, 2017, at approximately 5 a.m., Elmhurst Police responded to a call of a burglary in progress. Upon their arrival, officers observed two vehicles fleeing the area. In their attempt to flee, the driver of one of the vehicles, a Toyota, allegedly hit the second vehicle, a Dodge, also allegedly attempting to flee. The Toyota then allegedly crashed into a home.

Following the crashes, four men allegedly attempted to flee the two vehicles on foot. Daniel was apprehended a short time later in a nearby garage. A gun was also allegedly found in the garage in which Daniel was hiding. Webb and Wilson were found walking on a nearby street and taken into custody. Following an investigation led by the Elmhurst Police Department, it is alleged that on November 27, the men burglarized three vehicles on Gladys and Evergreen Streets in Elmhurst. It is further alleged that the Dodge vehicle in the men’s possession was stolen the previous night out of Villa Park.

“This afternoon, Mr. Wilson admitted to his role in the incident on November 27, 2017,” Berlin said. “Today’s sentencing sends the message that if you commit this type of brazen crime in DuPage County you will be caught, charged and if found guilty, spend a significant amount of time behind bars. I would like to thank the Elmhurst Police Department for their fine police work apprehending the men accused in this case.”

Webb’s next court appearance is scheduled for June 4, 2018, and Daniel’s next court appearance is scheduled for June 26, 2018. The cases against both men are in front of Judge Kinsella.

Members of the public are reminded that this complaint contains only charges and is not proof of the defendants’ guilt.
