Two Cars Stolen from Streamwood Neighborhoods, Offender Crashes One of Them on I-290 EAST Near Maywood


Police from Streamwood responded about 7:25 a.m. and 7:30 a.m. Tuesday, January 4, 2022 to reports of two stolen automobiles at crime scenes about one-half mile apart, just southwest of the intersection of Schaumburg Road and East Avenue.


A comment received on January 5, 2022 mentioned that the crashed vehicle was a Ford Fusion not a Ford Focus.

Streamwood police received a report that at 7:25 a.m. a vehicle was stolen in a single-family residential neighborhood in the block of 100 Seton Place in Streamwood. Police received a report that a 2013 blue Ford Focus was stolen and that the stolen vehicle was followed by a gray sedan “chase vehicle.” The vehicles were last seen traveling southbound on Seton Place toward Sunset Circle in Streamwood.

Police received a report that at 7:30 a.m. a vehicle was stolen from the block of 100 Red Cedar Circle (Cedar Drive?) in Streamwood. Police received a report that a silver 2015 Toyota sedan was stolen. The silver Toyota sedan was last seen eastbound on I-290.

Initially there was no confirmation whether the stolen silver Toyota sedan was the same vehicle as the chase vehicle described as the gray sedan following the blue Ford Focus.

The stolen blue Ford Focus was involved in a crash about 8:30 a.m. on I-290 East at 25th Avenue near west suburban Bellwood and Maywood. The driver of the crashed stolen blue Ford Focus continued driving and was last seen eastbound on I-290 from Damen Avenue.

About 5 minutes later the driver of a dark blue Jaguar pointed a black pistol at another vehicle while traveling on eastbound I-290 near Cicero Avenue. No apparent connection with the crash of the blue Ford Focus was indicated or ruled out.
