DeKALB – Two women accused of stealing a 1995 gold Saturn automobile Friday were released on their own recognizance Wednesday, after a hearing before DeKalb County Presiding Judge Robbin Stuckert.

Treshonda Cornett, 17, of the 2400 block of Williams Way, DeKalb, and Mickeya I. Stewart, 19, of the 1400 block of E. Stonehenge Drive, Sycamore, were charged with theft of a motor vehicle.

Stewart also was charged with theft and possession of marijuana after the DeKalb County Sheriff’s Office found less than 2.5 grams of marijuana and a stolen computer tablet in her purse, court records show. Stewart admitted to stealing the tablet, court records show.

As a condition of their bond, both women were ordered to participate in electronic home monitoring, including receiving police permission to leave unless it’s for school or work.

Police were dispatched about 8:40 p.m. Friday to Barber Greene Road east of Airport Road, DeKalb, on a report of a stolen 1995 gold Saturn, court records show. Police found Cornett and Stewart next to the car with footprints in the snow matching both suspects’ shoes, court records show.

If convicted of the most serious charge, both women could face up to seven years in prison. Their next court date is Jan. 9.
