Remember my article Sunday about signs being stolen that I had put along my neighbor’s property on heavily-traveled Lake Avenue in Lakewood.
Today I was out looking for the mail and saw the husband picking up leaves. (God bless him. That means they won’t blow in our yard.)
I walked toward him along the road to ask if he was willing to file a Police Report, as I did half a dozen times two years ago when someone kept stealing my Donald Trump signs (which were hard to get, because Trump put hardly any money into Illinois.)
As I got to the Gate 11 sign, what should I see, but the four signs that had been stolen Saturday night.
A big one for Randy Hultgren, whose district starts right across Meridian Street, on which I and my neighbor front, one for State Senate candidate Craig Wilcox and a pair for McHenry County Board candidates Carolyn Schofield and Josh Howell.
At the bottom of yesterday’s article appeared the following:
This reminds me of the guy who was caught stealing a Trump sign from in front of our home two years ago.
A neighbor took a photo of his car, complete with license plate.
The Lakewood Police tracked him down, but I didn’t write a story about the guy, who lived in our subdivision, Country Club Additions.
Maybe I should dig out that police report and publish it.
Perhaps the Lauren Underwood supporter read yesterday’s article and decided not to press his luck.
