Man gets 10 years for carjackings in West Town, Humboldt Park

CHICAGO — A Chicago man has been sentenced to 10 years for a pair of carjackings in West Town and Humboldt Park.

Trevelli Jones, 21, pleaded guilty in exchange for the sentence from Judge Michael Clancy, according to court records.

In one case, Jones was accused of pointing a gun at a 26-year-old woman as she unloaded groceries from her car on the 1600 block of North Washtenaw around 5 p.m. on December 14, 2021. Prosecutors said he demanded her keys while a second man patted her down and took her valuables.

Both men got into the woman’s 2017 Hyundai Elantra and drove away. A nearby CPD surveillance camera recorded the entire incident.

Police later found the car parked about a block from Jones’ house. They also found surveillance footage from another CPD camera that showed Jones walking into a cellular store where he presented his state ID to sell the carjacking victim’s phone after the robbery, prosecutors said. He did it while wearing the same clothes as during the hijacking.

Then, on January 9, 2022, Jones pointed a handgun at a Pizza Hut deliveryman on the 2600 block of West Potomac and ordered him to turn over his phone, wallet, and keys, prosecutors said.

After forcing the 24-year-old pizza runner to teach him how to start his Audi A4, Jones allegedly drove away with the car. Police found the stolen car and arrested Jones at his home the next day.

Jones was on bail for a manufacture-delivery of fentanyl case at the time of the carjackings. Prosecutors dropped those charges in the plea deal.
