Lisle police arrest two more in suspected car theft ring
Lisle police say they have captured two more members of a crew that has been stealing cars throughout the suburbs.
Aailyah Shewan, 21, of the 1200 block of Coventry Place in Aurora, has been charged with possession of a stolen motor vehicle and two counts of possession of stolen property. Her bail was set at $60,000.
Deanna Nolan, 24, of the 2000 block of Ogden Avenue in Lisle, is charged with criminal trespass to a motor vehicle, possession of a stolen credit card and possession of stolen property. Her bail was set at $50,000. A third woman was released without charges.
Deputy Chief Ron Wilke said officers saw a suspicious vehicle around 2 a.m. Saturday in the parking lot of a business on the 2000 block of Ogden Avenue. During an investigation, the officer learned the Mitsubishi Outlander recently was reported stolen in Bolingbrook.
Wilke said several hours of interviews were conducted with the women and additional information led detectives to multiple other criminal offenses.
Police departments in South Elgin, St. Charles, Oswego, and Bolingbrook were all contacted regarding crimes that occurred in their municipalities.
The crimes, Wilke said, are alleged to have involved additional stolen vehicles, credit cards and currency.
"It's cases like these that remind us all that we need to remove expensive items from our cars and lock up our valuables so we don't become easy targets of criminal behavior," Wilke said.
The women also are believed to have been involved in several recent thefts with Nicole Crook, an Arlington Heights woman Lisle police arrested Friday night at a gas station and charged with possession of a stolen Mercedes from South Elgin.
