I'll bet it's those pesky meth heads from Edgar County coming over and doing it. We should build a wall at the state line.

Yes, we have heard of these occurences. This is sick these people on meth robbing all hours of the day and night!! I live here in Libertyville and wa told of this by my 80 year old neighbor, the idiots will do anything to support their habits. This is very personal to me because my fathers house was robbed 2 months ago.My 6 year old and 9 year old and I opened the front door to the bay window busted in his living room and all his flat screen tv's gone, along with my kids Wii and games, some guns and a couple other things. Not even 3 months before this happened we lost my mother, Cathy Fortner to cancer. I feel the theives knew alot about us and went in for alot more than they got. We are almost positive on who did this but the sheriff wont even question the people we have heard did this; even though one guy was in the jail for a robbery. The people involved know our schedules when we leave and so on. With my dads especially, they were very aware of my mother dying and I believe went in their house for jewerly, or money but when wasn't none, started grabbing anything of value. This robbery happened between 5:30 am and 8:30 am when My 2 girls and I stopped by my dads unexpected and found him robbed!! We had been through enough!!!! These people are local punks I do believe and will do anything to support a habit This is sick and I hope whoever doing these robberies pays dearly for them. Theiving is wrong, GO TO WORK AND GET OFF DOPE, is how I feel but not happening anytime soon. There is a thousand dollar reward out so if anyone knows who robbed my fathers Brad Fortner in New Goshen please get with us, Thank You and I would say LOCK YOUR DOORS but it doesn't matter so KEEP A WEAPON HANDY FOR PROTECTION!!!! Until these idiots are in jail, though the system will slap em on the hand and let em go do it again and again.

I'm with you or used to be until I got robbed. You will not be home when they break in. And don't leave that loaded gun laying around either or it will be in one of their back pockets.
too funny

Happen to run across this topic. Been a long time since I was in Shirkieville. It was during my college days. There use to be a tavern call the Illini Club, I think. Is it still there?
