There's not a whole lot that can be done...the description of the truck was vague....no make or model. There are tons of single cab green trucks. And, the sicko most likely watches the news, so he's probably keeping a low profile.

. Ur right about that it wasn't single cab though it was exstended. Just hate that this guy is going to try again when he thinks he is in the clear.he has to slip up sooner or later.hopefully if he does we can get a plate number..I just don't like that my daughter still looks over her shoulder because he is out there

. I think its because these girls r kind of shocked when it happened.I have since drilled.it into my daughters head that u need to get a plate number even if its just part of one..hopefully by now they all know to do this if the y are aproached.
Highland Needs To Hire

Highland's infamous, Louie Monken

Why do you Highland people make things so difficult? Set up a reward in the amount of several thousand dollars, give Louie a basic description of the perp and a description of the truck, and instruct Louie to carry a small pad of paper, a pen and pencil, and a cellphone, all of which he is to carry at all times.

I've seen your Louie here in Troy many times as well as Edwardsville, Marine, St. Jacob and of course, Highland. Needless to say, I've seen him at all points in between also.

Louie has a set of wheels that just won't quit and I'm quite confident he could use the money.

So stop wringing your hands and Git 'Er Done!
