In the past 10 days three cars were reported stolen from the northeast section of town, in Dekalb. Yesterday morning, a citizen reported a suspicious vehicle in the neighborhood. While officers responded, two more cars were being reported stolen.

An officer observed all three vehicles headed towards I-88. Officers were able to stop two of the vehicles and apprehended three subjects. The third vehicle fled but was later recovered in North Aurora. These subjects were identified and charges are pending.

Arrested were:
Damien Bolden, age 19, of DeKalb
Calvin Spells, age 28, of DeKalb
Shyjuan Cooks, age 20, of Chicago
All were charged with several felonies.
