I agree w/you, John. Doesn't it make you wonder from where the $10,000 came!!! -- if it's even true!?!

This is straight from what the Bolingbrook police sent out.
John Moreli July 03, 2012 at 08:41 PM
I believe the Police were told that, but 10,000?

Some people do not trust the banks. (cultures) You think no one can save $10,000 in Cash?
John Moreli July 04, 2012 at 04:06 AM
Banks are insured up to 150,000, Grove Ct isn't exactly the Beverly Hills area! Still suspicious!

People who have $10k in cash? They're called 'drug dealers'. Also funny that at 1992 Suburban is called a Carryall (they stopped calling them that in the 60's)-must have been an old cop reporting the theft.
T-Bone July 06, 2012 at 03:29 PM
Either way it was probably someone they know who took it. It doesn't say it was a Burglary so it sounds like someone talked too much!

Prolly has something to do with all the drug dealers on that street.
