Sheriff’s deputies arrested three suspects, including two juveniles, after they were found in a stolen vehicle that was speeding over 90 mph through North Chicago early Friday morning.

A Lake County sheriff’s sergeant was on patrol around 2:30 a.m. Friday in the area of Route 41 and Casimir Pulaski Drive in North Chicago.

Lake County Sheriff’s Office Deputy Chief Christopher Covelli said the sergeant clocked a northbound Hyundai Sonata traveling at 93 mph in a 55 mph zone.

The sergeant was able to catch up to the speeding car and initiated a traffic stop.

When the sergeant approached the car, he noticed a passenger side window was shattered and the steering column was damaged.

A further investigation showed the vehicle had been stolen moments earlier from an apartment complex in the 500 block of Lakehurst Road in Waukegan, Covelli said.

Sheriff’s deputies arrested and transported the driver, a 16-year-old Waukegan boy, to the Lake County Sheriff’s Office Criminal Investigations Division.

Two passengers, a 20-year-old Chicago man and a 17-year-old Waukegan boy, were also in the car and taken into custody.

The 16-year-old was referred on charges of unlawful possession of a stolen motor vehicle, possession of burglary tools, reckless driving, curfew violation, speeding, driving without a license and operating an uninsured motor vehicle.

The 20-year-old, identified as Junior A. Gomes-Mejia, was charged with contributing to the delinquency of a child, criminal trespass to motor vehicle and theft.

The theft charge was for a cell phone he had in his possession, which was stolen from a residence in Waukegan, Covelli said.

The 17-year-old was referred on charges of obstructing identification and criminal trespass to motor vehicle.

Gomes-Mejia is expected to appear in First Appearance Court on Friday.
