Robbery

In the block of 5400 N. Oconto Ave attempted robbery of belongings in someone's car. Be on the look out in the morning they can hide in bushes and steal your phone or purse. According to my neighbor they have a get away car. Since we're so close to the highway and train station its an easy target.

Recycling Cans

Two groups of people, hours apart, walked down the alley today in the 6000 block of Waveland and stopped at my fence, talking. Both groups opened my blue can and looked inside, then walked away. Has anyone else seen this? I'm curious as to what they may have been looking for.

  • I bag my metal cans for the pickers as well. It's little effort for me and easier for them. It still gets recycled.

  • Thanks everyone, for your responses. If it had been one or two people each time, I might think they were looking for cans, but these were groups, as in six or seven people. I'll probably never know.
