Cops say a Lombard man stole a luxury car from an Old Town high-rise, drove it through the parking garage door, crashed the car, and ran away. But he didn’t get far and he’s now charged with three felonies.

Daveon Brown, 19, entered the parking garage at 1560 North Sandberg Terrace around 6 a.m. on May 14, got behind the wheel of a white 2013 Mercedes sedan that belongs to a building resident, and then plowed through the garage door and crashed, prosecutors say.

Garage workers chased after Brown and cops arrested him near Clark and North Avenue.

The garage door was “wrecked,” with repairs estimated to cost between $10,000 and $100,000.

Brown is charged with three felonies: residential burglary; receiving-possessing a stolen vehicle; and criminal damage to property. Bail is set at $250,000.
