Illinois Thieves Break Hearts Throughout The State

Crime has become a huge problem in Illinois. For the average resident, it really hurts the pocketbook along with breaking hearts. I've been robbed and had items stolen from me. It's a horrible experience. Someone just takes something that you worked hard for the opportunity to purchase. That's hard to get over. I was just thinking about this exact situation. Of course, this storage garage is owned by a handyman. You know he loves his tools and spent a bunch of money to build his collection. He shows up to work on a project and all of his tools are gone. I feel for the poor guy.
