An arrest warrant has been obtained for an 18-year-old Chicago teen who is believed to have stolen a car in October in Cary, Cary police officials said Thursday.
Officers responded at 3:45 p.m. Oct. 15 to the Cary Car Wash, 820 W. Northwest Highway, for a report of a stolen vehicle, according to a news release from the Cary Police Department.
Officers learned that a Jeep Grand Cherokee was stolen while being dried after a car wash and last was seen driving west on Northwest Highway, Deputy Chief Scott Naydenoff stated. The offender was described as tall and skinny and wearing a gray sweatshirt with black pants.
Cary police investigators later determined that the stolen Jeep was used in a crime in Chicago allegedly involving Dimari Terry and another male, whose age and name weren’t provided. Terry and the other male were arrested by Chicago police.
Further investigation led Cary police to identify Terry, of the 4900 block of West Concord Place, as the man who stole the car, Naydenoff stated. Terry currently is in the Cook County Jail for charges related to the incident in Chicago.
The McHenry County arrest warrant is for one count of theft of more than $10,000, a Class 2 felony, which typically is punishable by three to seven years in prison.
