A man already serving prison time for burglarizing cars parked at a St. Charles gym has been sentenced to another 10 years for a felony involving a stolen Corvette, according to Kane County court records.

Daniel Kellogg, 39, pleaded guilty Monday to a charge of receiving, possessing or selling a stolen vehicle.

As part of the plea agreement accepted by Judge John Barsanti, related charges – including some about forged documents – were dropped, records show.

Kellogg, who once rented a house in Campton Hills, stole his landlord’s 1990 Chevrolet Corvette and sold the sports car to a dealership, police have said. Records show he must serve 10 years in the Department of Corrections for the crime. He also must pay $850 in fines and costs and $31,525 in restitution.

Kellogg also is serving a five-year sentence for burglarizing cars parked outside XSport in 2010.

Police said he gained access to the vehicles by taking keys from the front desk key basket.

Kellogg, however, eluded authorities for more than a year, dodging that prison sentence. An anonymous tip in January 2013 led to his arrest in St. Charles, and a Kane County jury convicted him of felony escape earlier this year.

He was sentenced to a year of conditional discharge, records show.
