SYCAMORE – A call for a motorist needing help led to a Chicago man being charged with possessing a stolen vehicle.

James D. Mondie, 22, of the 4000 block of Sheridan Road, was charged with possession of a stolen motor vehicle after DeKalb County Sheriff's deputies respond to the call at 11:46 p.m. Wednesday at U.S. 23 and Lloyd Road between Genoa and Sycamore.

If convicted, Mondie could face up to seven years in prison.

According to court documents, deputies learned the car had been reported stolen earlier in the day from a car dealer in Chicago. It had been taken for a test drive at about 2 p.m. and was still out from the lot when the business closed, according to court documents. Chicago police had reported the vehicle stolen.

The owner of the vehicle wished to report the vehicle stolen, according to court records, and Mondie was charged.

Judge Phillip Montgomery ordered Mondie released on his signature Thursday in bond court. He also ordered Mondie be placed on pre-trial supervision.

Mondie is next due in court Monday at 9 a.m.
