Two Cook County Men Charged with Stealing Luxury Cars

DuPage County State’s Attorney Robert B. Berlin and Hinsdale Chief of Police Brian King announced today that two Cook County males have been charged with stealing and/or possessing a stolen motor vehicle in DuPage County in two separate occasions. Jarone Carter, 24 (d.o.b. 2/21/1996) of 15202 State Street, South Holland, and Christian Green, 18 (d.o.b. 6/2/2001) of the same address, both appeared at a bond hearing this morning where Judge Brian Telander set bond at $50,000 with 10% to apply for Carter and $75,000 with 10% to apply for Green. The State asked for bond of $200,000 for Carter and $300,000 for Green. Green has been charged with one count of Residential Burglary (Class 1 Felony) and one count of Aggravated Possession of a Stolen Motor Vehicle (Class 1 Felony). Carter has been charged with one count of Possession of a Stolen Motor Vehicle, a Class 2 Felony.

On March 11, 2020, as part of their ongoing efforts investigating stolen motor vehicles out of DuPage County, officers with the Hinsdale Police Department executed a search warrant at two locations in South Holland. Both Carter and Green were taken into custody at this time. It is alleged that at approximately 2:56 a.m., February 9, 2020, Green traveled to Hinsdale and entered the attached garage of a residence located on Lincoln Street. It is further alleged that once inside the garage, Green stole a 2018 Jaguar F-Pace from the garage. It is also alleged that on several occasions between February 27 and February 29, 2020, Carter was observed in possession of a 2012 Audi A6 that was reported stolen on February 20, 2020.

“In the past several months, DuPage County has seen a significant increase in motor vehicle thefts,” Berlin said. “The apprehension and charging of these two defendants sends the message that if you commit this type of crime in DuPage County you will be caught, charged and spend a substantial amount of time behind bars if convicted. Thanks to the outstanding work of the Hinsdale Police Department, that is the predicament in which Mr. Carter and Mr. Green now find themselves. I would like to commend the Hinsdale Police Department for their work not only on these two cases but also for their continued operations in investigating and recovering vehicles that have been reported stolen. I would like to thank all the numerous agencies that assisted in the apprehension of the defendants in this case. I would also like to thank Assistant State’s Attorneys Helen Kapas, Bethany Jackson and Anthony Pasquini for their efforts in securing charges against these two defendants.”

“The Hinsdale Police Department will actively pursue the arrest, charging, and prosecution of individuals who have targeted our communities for overnight auto thefts and burglaries.” King said. “We enjoy a strong working relationship with DuPage County States Attorney Robert Berlin’s Office, and we are thankful for their strong commitment to public safety. We would also like to acknowledge the work of some our law enforcement partners; The South Barrington, Highland Park, Wilmette, Burr Ridge and Chicago Police Departments as well as the MCAT, MERIT and NORTAF task forces.”

The next court appearance for both men is scheduled for April 20, 2020 in front of Judge Telander for arraignment.

Members of the public are reminded that this complaint contains only charges and is not proof of the defendants’ guilt. The defendants are presumed innocent and are entitled to a fair trial in which it is the government’s burden to prove their guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.
