Catalytic Converter Theft

Caution Catalytic Converter theft! I got in the car this morning, parked on 2200 Hoyne across the street from the school, at 5:30AM and found the car running really loud. Took it to Chevy dealer in Lincoln Park on Norht and it's $1200 to fix the stolen Catalytic Converter.

  • Jon Banks supervisor banks

    They can pull a catalytic converter from a vehicle in about 4-5 minutes. I've watched them do it in broad daylight. A vehicle pulls up next to the target car, the passenger slips out, removes the catalytic converter and hops back in the vehicle. It's so fast they don't park their vehicle, they just pull up next to the target car. Now if they could put that talent to good use.....

  • Sighryn Roscoe resident

    Yes, Zee. So far so good. I don't want to Jinx it but it has been a while, Sept 2012 to be exact. The thieves have tried but my alarm went off. In my experience they will come back for your converter so take as many precautions as you can....

    Yes, Zee. So far so good. I don't want to Jinx it but it has been a while, Sept 2012 to be exact. The thieves have tried but my alarm went off. In my experience they will come back for your converter so take as many precautions as you can. I didn't have the money to buy the alarm and the cat clamp the first two times it happened. The last time it happened was two days after my wedding....so I used some of that money to pay for it.

    It was also $2000 to get my particular converter replaced. Now I hear it's down to $1200.

Dog needs new forever home

Sam is an 8 year old Cattle Dog Mix, about 45 lbs. She loves to cuddle and would be great for all people young and old **except for families with children. She is house trained, great on a Leash, loves long walks (on the beach). Loves jumping and running at the forest preserve and listens well off lease. She will do well in a home with other dogs.

The reason why I need to find her a new forever home...

The reason why I need to find her a new forever home is that she **can not be around kids, especially crazy toddlers. When around little kids she gets scared which leads her to become aggressive towards them. But with that said... she is AMAZING with adults. She is a little timid and needs a time to get to know you.

  • Hi Shell-- We are hoping that Brian will love her and take her home!! Keep u all posted.

Construction start time

Is there a time restriction on when construction can start for the day?
I know the Bloomingdale Trail construction is behind schedule a bit, but do they need to start working at 6:30 in the morning? Jackhammers were being used at 7:15.

I won't even get into the issues with parking/traffic on our street/intersection.

Have you experienced an act of kindness recently?

Hello friends and neighbors! Have you experienced a random act of kindness lately? Someone who helped you out in some way – big or small – went beyond the call, or just put a big smile on your face? Would love to hear your stories about who our community goes out of its way to help each other and make things better, even if that’s one person at a time with some small gesture.

  • If my neighbors on each side of my building are reading this, I'm still waiting for the thank you for shoveling your sidewalks. Here's your opportunity!

Missing a little orange cat?

Parking Lot Dent Repair Scam Alert

Earlier this afternoon, a couple guys appeared to be scamming an older Asian gentleman with a Lexus in the Walgreen's parking lot at Fullerton / Greenview.

Apparently, this type of scam is very common. Two individuals approach another individual and offer to repair a car dent for less than what it would cost in a bodyshop. Often times, the individual scammed goes to an ATM to withdraw cash to pay for the body work and the work done is shoddy...

Earlier this afternoon, a couple guys appeared to be scamming an older Asian gentleman with a Lexus in the Walgreen's parking lot at Fullerton / Greenview.

Apparently, this type of scam is very common. Two individuals approach another individual and offer to repair a car dent for less than what it would cost in a bodyshop. Often times, the individual scammed goes to an ATM to withdraw cash to pay for the body work and the work done is shoddy and, often times, more money is requested to pay for the job.

I called 911 to report the possible incident; however, the Asian man and the scammers seemed to have parted ways before the police arrived.

The scammers appeared to be in a silver Chevy with a license plate that looked like R1460149 (from a distance). One scammer appeared to be of Latino descent with a goatee (I cannot remember that with 100% certainty). The other gentleman was a taller, skinnier fellow who was wearing a snow hat.

  • Saw these guys in the Costco parking lot (Clybourn & Damen) on Wednesday and reported it. This time it was a green minivan.
