St. Charles man pleads guilty to theft from car dealership

ST. CHARLES – A man accused last year of stealing wheels from a vehicle at a St. Charles dealership pleaded guilty to theft last week, according to Kane County court records.

Stewart S. Parazaider, 30, of St. Charles, was charged with the Class 3 felony in September 2013 after police found him at Don McCue Chevrolet late one night trying to remove a fourth wheel from a black 2013 Chevy Suburban, police have said.

He reportedly told police he hoped to sell the wheels to a friend.

The dealership placed the value of the removed parts at about $5,000, court records show.

Judge Susan Clancy Boles accepted Parazaider's guilty plea Wednesday.

He was sentenced to 24 months of probation and four days in the county jail, for which he has two days' credit for time served, according to records.

As conditions of his probation, records indicate Parazaider cannot leave the state without permission, must submit to drug tests and, among other requirements, must obey all federal and state laws and local ordinances.

Parazaider was also ordered to pay $3,180 in fines and costs. Records show he has paid $1,800, leaving him with a balance of $1,380.
