Angry Hit hard near chicago

Last night we had two trucks and two trailers loaded stolen from our storage yard. The police found them both, minus all the mowers and machines. The Steering Columns on both trucks were broken along with both driver side door handles that were damaged. We never thought it would happen to us, but what a ***** it has been. Wright stander mowers, scag walkbehinds, redmax and echo hand helds, Redmax blowers, bobcat push mowers the list goes on. We had cameras at the lot but the ass***** smashed those off the posts, and a locked security gate that was smashed through using our 2001 Chevy dump. Watch yourselves, Theft is on the rise. We park in Des Plaines, IL

all the machines were found. And the truck that was used to smash the gate was a 2008 ford f450, not the chevy.
