Maybe you could help spread the word so these criminals can be caught. Around 4:30am on August 8th (Tuesday Morning) Our Truck was broken into in the area of 173 and Ralston Rd. In Machesney Park. A passerby was headed to work and noticed a black male removing items from the bed of our truck and placing them into a White Grand Am or Grand Prix model vehicle.
The man noticed him, noticing them, and jumped in the car and fled. The passerby followed them but was unable to get a plate # and lost them in the area of Crazy Times Bar.
Late Night August 8th or Early Morning Aug 9th…..They struck another home a few houses down from ours and stole the car stereo and other items from the car, also parked in their driveway. The officer said the criminals refer to this as “Car Shopping.”
If your vehicle is unlocked…..they go shopping. They have hit at least 3 streets in our area and are still going strong.
I know it’s a vague description but please keep your eyes open for anything unusual. They returned the 2nd night, knowing they were seen early that morning, with no fear and continued “shopping.”
If you see a vehicle and men that match the description and seem suspicious, please contact the Police IMMEDIATELY and Get a Plate # If Possible.
