LOMBARD, IL – Dallas Dabney, a 28-year-old man from Broadview, Illinois, has been sentenced to 22 years in the Illinois Department of Corrections for his role in hijacking a man’s car from a McDonald’s drive-thru in Lombard. 

Dabney appeared in court where he pleaded guilty to one count of Aggravated Vehicular Hijacking with a Firearm, a Class X Felony. The sentence was handed down by Judge Brian Telander.

On the day in question, Dabney, along with co-defendant Antonio Protho, allegedly approached the victim’s vehicle, pointed a gun at him, and ordered him out of the car. They then allegedly entered the car and fled the scene, driving at speeds of up to 100 mph. The vehicle later crashed on I-290 and Dabney was taken into custody. Protho was later reportedly found an hour later hiding near a restaurant on Roosevelt Road. 

Two guns, both Ruger 9mm, were also allegedly found in the hijacked vehicle.  The case against Protho is still ongoing.

DuPage County State’s Attorney Robert Berlin stated that “violent gun crimes, such as alleged in this case, will not be tolerated in DuPage County. The message is clear, if you commit a violent crime in DuPage County, you will be apprehended, prosecuted and if found guilty, spend a significant amount of time behind bars.”
