“I dont know if theres anything you can do but a short time ago my wallet was stolen from Schnucks in Loves Park. Schnucks was less then helpful but said they saw nothing. I had it in the cart. All new bank cards, debit cards, social security cards , I am so upset. I need to get my heart meds tomorrow and migraine meds and I have nothing not even a drivers license because everything was in there. Can you you put the word out about it if anyone saw anything. It was the Schnucks in Loves Park Il on Harlem. If someone turns it in there will be a reward!”
