A Lincoln Park woman hired two strangers to help her unload a U-Haul truck in the 1200 block of West Fullerton on Sunday afternoon. Her move took a notably bad turn when the two men hopped into the truck and drove off with all of her belongings.

    Wow. I hope they catch the thieves. U-Haul should be able to track the truck by GPS, I would think.

    Pick-pocketed an elderly man? in Walmart?? Did they think he was secretly a Rockefeller? The thieves are incredibly stupid and much worse than cruel.

  5. Seriously, it's a chronic problem in Uptown, dudes loitering at Uhaul, they just come back and rob the people they've moved if not doing something this outright crass to begin with.
