A Chicago resident has been charged June 2022 with one count of vehicle theft conspiracy after an investigation connected him to a located and recovered abandoned Hyundai Santa Fe that had been carjacked in Mount Prospect in March 2022.

Mount Prospect police detectives on June 29, 2023 charged Adrian Resendiz, age 27, of the block of 7000 North Ridge Avenue in Chicago with one count of vehicle theft conspiracy connected to a vehicular hijacking that occurred around 11:00 p.m. on March 19, 2022 in the block of 1800 Burning Bush Lane on the north side of Mount Prospect.

Along with Vehicle Theft Conspiracy, Resendiz was charged with Felon Possessing a Firearm on Parole.

Police officers from Mount Prospect responded about 11:02 p.m. Saturday, March 19, 2022 to a report of an aggravated vehicular hijacking in the block of 1800 North Burning Bush Lane in Mount Prospect.

The preliminary investigation revealed the victim was approached by an unknown offender as she exited her white Hyundai Santa Fe she had parked in her driveway. The offender pointed a black colored handgun at the victim and demanded her purse and car keys, which she gave to the offender. The victim then ran inside her home and called 911 to report the incident. The victim described that there was a gray SUV parked in front of her house and a second unknown subject standing near the rear of her vehicle just before the carjacking.

The victim watched an offender drive away with her white colored Hyundai Santa Fe after the offender drove across her front lawn of her home. The Hyundai Santa Fe was last seen headed northbound on Burning Bush Lane toward Old Willow Road/Seminole Lane.

Video surveillance from a nearby residence showed the victim’s Hyundai and the gray SUV headed eastbound on Seminole Lane away from the scene.

The offender, who was holding the handgun, was described as a black male, approximately 5’5” tall, weighing 175 LBS. He was wearing a black and white colored hooded sweatshirt and black pants.

The Hyundai was located and recovered abandoned in Chicago four days later on March 23, 2022, and was towed back to the Mount Prospect Police Station, where it was processed for evidence. During evidence processing, crime scene technicians located a stolen license plate that was attached to the vehicle, and also retrieved fingerprint evidence on the on the license plate. The fingerprint evidence was connected to Adrian Resendiz. Police detectives were also able to confirm that Resendiz was aware the Hyundai was stolen when he allegedly attached the stolen license plate to the Hyundai Santa Fe.

For the Vehicle Theft Conspiracy, Resendiz is held on 200,000 D Bond, which means that 10% or $20,000 applies to secure release from jail. His next court date is July 28, 2023 at Cook County Circuit Court in Rolling Meadows.

For the charge of Felon Possessing a Firearm on Parole, Resendiz is held Without Bond or NO BOND, and his next court date is August 1, 2023 in Cook County Circuit Court in Skokie.

Resendiz is held in Division 5 medium security jail. His booking date apparently for the gun charge was October 7, 2022.

The second offender was described as a male wearing an unknown colored hooded sweatshirt. The stolen vehicle is a 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe bearing Illinois registration ZU39486. The offenders should be considered armed and dangerous, and should not be approached, according to the Mount Prospect Police Department.

The victim was not injured during this incident.

The Mount Prospect Police Department is continuing to investigate this Aggravated Vehicular Hijacking. Anyone with information regarding this incident is urged to call the Mount Prospect Police Department Investigations Section at 847-870-5654.
