Rural towns and areas are always under the impression that they live in a safe and isolated enough area that they do not have to worry about unwanted visitors and home intruders. Generally they do not worry about locking their doors, and the thought of purchasing a home security system is outlandish, but lately, in Kankakee County that sense of safety and security is starting to dissolve. For the past couple of weeks there have been a string of home invasions by who are presumed to be repeat offenders taking advantage of the lax environment in Kankakee and surrounding rural towns.
According to ABC7 Eyewitness News, the perpetrators go around in broad daylight and knock on doors to see if residents are home. If the door is answered then they act as if they are lost and need assistance find their way to Interstate 57 or 55, those are odd questions to be asked in that area. If no one answers the door then the thieves proceed to break into the homes and make way with anything they find of value. Some of the items reported stolen are cash, credit cards, jewelry, electronics, and guns. No one has been identified or arrested in connection with the burglaries and the thieves are starting to branch out to other rural towns such as Essex and Bonfield.
