A Local, 87 Year Old Woman Has Good Advice For Us All

Hi, Leslie Harris in for Mitch once again. And 87-year-old woman from Des Plaines thwarted a burglar with her fast thinking.

The suspect had forced a storm door open, and was working on getting the front door open when the 87 year old woman came to see what was happening. The man said her house was on fire and he grabbed her arm.

When the quick thinking woman told the man that her house was equipped with security cameras, he immediately let go of her arm and high-tailed it out of there in a light colored car. The house was in fact, not on fire.

No word on whether or not her house was REALLY equipped with security cameras, but this is one of those pieces of information that we need to tuck away, you know, just in case!
