    The pick pocket incidences on Kostner and the one on Armitage seem like they could be the same perpetrator doing them given the area they've been reported in

    I almost got pickpocket at the Dollar Tree on Belmont and Central.
    I slap her hand and she said did I bump into you I'm sorry. I was scared because she was so much bigger than I am and no one was around except her and I. I am a senior citizen and I only had $13 on me I was too scared to say anything and she paid with a $50 bill. I should have told the manager as soon as it happened, Next time I hope to know better and speak up right away.

  • paul in jefferson jefferson park resident

    Was it a minority

  • Diane Fischer Diane, resident of Belmont Hts.

    Yes, it was Paul.

  • it was paul?

  • paul in jefferson jefferson park resident

    I know the neighborhood well , Thank God you are ok , I would bring it up with store manager anyhow ,you can call him on phone, he should know. Steinmetz attracts some bad elements into the neighborhood.

  • Diane Fischer Diane, resident of Belmont Hts.

    Paul I did tell the manager and asked her if she has it on tape she said yes I told her she can show it to the police she said yes she could and I never heard anything after that.

  • What difference does it make whether it was a minority or not? Why is everything on this site turning racist?

  • retired "why is everything on this site turning racist?"

    i want you to go ahead and think about that question for a few. answer shouldn't be too hard to find.

  • Michael McDonough Resident of BelCragin

    Race shouldn't even be an issue we are here on this site because it gives us all a chance to speak our onions and be respectful doing it sure l say what l do and feel the way l do toward Trump but l never go into nationality on him

  • Michael McDonough Resident of BelCragin

    And l don't care about what a persons race or nationality may be l treat everyone with the full respect they deserve l would have no business being a coach in a special needs baseball program or for that matter even being a paratransit bus driver where there too l drive people of all races and nationality

    I filled out a survey for Everyblock and was offered a free gift for mailing cost only but the it shifted to $19.95 instead of
    $3.95. Looks like a scam to me. Please advise

  • Michael McDonough Resident of BelCragin

    It does sound like a scam .DOn't even go for it.

  • PortageRules Love Portage Park!

    Ald. Sposato is holding a neighborhood safety meeting in April. I cannot attend. If anyone is going, please raise the question why his office is telling people that alley light fixes are taking 6 months. I pay my escrow every month for property taxes. This is UNACCEPTABLE!

  • Michael McDonough Resident of BelCragin

    And in some places the alley behind my house for example the lights are on during the day abd off at night Oh Mr Reboyras!
