Cook County man out on bond found guilty in 2022 carjacking that led to police chase in Will County
WILL COUNTY, Ill. - A Harvey man was found guilty Friday in connection to a Chicago carjacking that led to a car chase with police in Will County last year.
Jordan Henry, 28, was found guilty on three counts of aggravated vehicular hijacking, two counts of armed robbery, two counts of attempted aggravated vehicular hijacking, aggravated unlawful possession of a stolen motor vehicle, two counts of theft, unlawful possession of a weapon by a felon, aggravated fleeing or attempting to elude a peace officer and striking a police animal.
The carjacking occurred at 1802 Diversey Parkway and then Harvey led police on a chase that ended off Interstate 55 in Will County.
Henry sought to dismiss the action in Will County, arguing that it should be tried in Chicago where the carjacking occurred.
A judge denied the motion after prosecutors argued that Henry continued to "exert unauthorized control over the stolen Volkswagen Jetta while in Will County."
