One source said: “Hello, I live in South Beloit Illinois. Our neighborhood was hit by thieves last night. Many neighbors had wallets and items stolen from cars. My husband lost a wallet and they stole my mother’s 2016 Honda Accord. An officer just called to inform my husband that found his wallet in a pile of other wallets outside a home on the west side of Rockford. I was hoping you could notify your followers to be on the look out for our 2016 Honda Accord, metallic grey with plates ZY28065. Thank you in advance for any help you can give.”
