Centralia Man Arrested for Stealing Car

By Bruce Kropp, WJBD News

An 18-year-old Centralia man has been formally charged in Marion County Court with unlawful possession of a stolen vehicle, and two counts of theft.  

Quienton Jolliff of South Locust was stopped by Centralia Police after a concerned citizen allegedly saw a man jumping out of the vehicle and taking items from the porches of homes.  The citizen followed the vehicle and was able to obtain the license plate number.  

After stopping the car, police determined the 1993 Ford Thunderbird owned by Dylan McAbee of Walnut Hill had been stolen from Hartnell's where it was being repaired.   Jolliff is also charged with taking a chainsaw owned by Allen Wilson and a gas can from the Garnetta Moss property.   

Bond for Jolliff was set at $15,000.  A public defender was appointed to represent him.  A preliminary hearing is set for July 8th.
