There was something on channel 7 news about a place getting robbed 3 times in one night recently. I thought they said Midlothian.

December 20, 2013 (MIDLOTHIAN, Ill.)(WLS)-- A suburban business owner says his auto accessories store was burglarized not just once, but three times in one night. The break-ins were captured by store surveillance cameras.

The Tint Shop, an auto accessories store, sits on busy 147th in Midlothian. At 10:30 Tuesday night, a minivan backs up to the front door. Burglars get out, use bolt cutters to remove a lock, but an alarm scares them off.

But a half hour later, back they come, like they know the place. Hopping the counter, let's see what's here. There's lots of stuff. Just below three surveillance cameras that record multi-angles of the four-minute grab and go.

George Leiva and his co-workers have watched the video over and over as the thieves stack up radios, cars alarms, stereo speakers. It's like a big Christmas haul. They don't have enough hands to carry it all. Nobody outside notices two guys loading the mini-van with over 50 boxes of audio gear, roughly $20,000 worth of stuff.

"They definitely don't seem concerned about anybody showing up of calling police. You're right, 147th is busy all the time," said Leiva.

It may be that The Tint Shop wasn't the only stop for the burglars.

Just down the block a few hours later, burglars broke into a Cash For Gold store, took some jewelry, and tried to pound their way through a wall into a liquor store, but apparently gave up when they hit brick.

Back at The Tint Shop, the burglars returned for a 2:30 a.m. encore. How 'bout that subwoofer, load it up. And that wall display.

"You wanna not put your personal emotion into it and it's just merchandise. I'm glad we weren't here, but at the end of the day that's money lost that we worked for," said Leiva.

The thieves did leave some fingerprints on the glass counter top, which they broke. It takes months, however, for the state police to turn around prints on property crimes.

The backlog is huge, but police departments can ask for a faster run which Midlothian police say they will do. They suspect this week's burglaries may be part of a recent ring in Midlothian and surrounding towns.

The Tint Shop owners are offering a reward and hoping that someone can identify the faces on tape.

When my house got broken into, MIdlo's finest didn't even look for prints. When I had an alarm put in the next day, the installer showed me how the footprints on my door showed two people kicked it in, the cop didn't even see it.

When I turned in the list of things we found missing, the cop told me in no certain terms that I was wasting my time and we would never see that stuff again....really reassuring.....

If you're driving on a suspended license A) you're breaking the law and B) you deserve to have your car impounded.

I'm really not sure what "bit of dro. racist shit" is supposed to mean, but I think your screen name says it all. You are disrespectful towards men and women that you have never in your life had to walk in their shoes.

Tell your brother to take the bus, bum a ride from a friend or carpool with a coworker until such time that he can get his license in order. I had close family member think it was totally okay to drive without insurance. They learned their lesson too, and they didn't curse out or insult the cops. Their attitude wasn't much better, but at least they thought "Well, I got away with it for x amount of time before they caught me."

Your brother should be grateful he didn't get worse. Grow up. The police are there because we as citizens said we wanted protection and wanted them to uphold the laws for us. Where do you get off complaining about them doing just that? If the law was unjust I could somewhat see your point, but I think it's completely fair to expect people to pay for their insurance, pay for their cars, get and keep a valid drivers license, etc. Driving is a privilege not a right.
