Chicago man possessed stolen car, had gun on him after foot chase in Naperville: officials


A Chicago the man was taken into custody Thursday for allegedly possessing a stolen vehicle and having a loaded Glock pistol on him when he was arrested.

Around 4:41, Naperville Police responded to the 1600 block of Westminister Drive to a report of a stolen Dodge Durango.

Officers were able to locate the stolen Dodge at a gas station on Route 59 near I-88 in Naperville, officials said.

When an officer approached the Dodge, 20-year-old Frank Whitefield Jr. and an unidentified individual allegedly exited the Durango and fled on foot.

After a short chase, officials say Whitefield was captured and found in possession of a loaded .45 Glock pistol with one round in the chamber, an extended magazine and a laser attachment.


“The crimes alleged in this case will not be tolerated in DuPage County and anyone suspected of such behavior will be swiftly arrested and face serious charges that will be aggressively prosecuted,” the DuPage County State Attorney said, Robert B. Berlin.

Whitefield was charged with possession of a stolen motor vehicle, aggravated unlawful use of a weapon and possession of burglary tools. His bond was set at $250,000.

He is due to appear in court on February 21.
