Illinois State Police recover stolen car

At approximately 2:11 a.m., on Friday, April 26, Illinois State Police were conducting routine patrols near I-80 eastbound, mile post 81, when a vehicle was observed speeding 84 in a 65 mph zone.

The black Chrysler 200 was stopped, and a check run on the Minnesota license plate on the vehicle indicated there was no record on file for that license plate.

A check of the vehicle identification number on the vehicle was then run which showed the vehicle was reported stolen from Dollar Car Rental at Midway Airport on March 27.

Police arrested the driver, Jannelle M. DeBernardi, 23, of Ottawa and charged her with possession of a stolen vehicle.
