Robbing on Lake Street

I wonder how much they make at a subway, but now we have an answer about 600 to 800 at a subway on Lake street. We know because it was robbed recently. I have always said that the residents of Oak Park, IL do not take their security seriously and this just adds to the list of potential victims: local businesses. So much for doing deposits or putting money mid-day in a safe that can only be accessed at certain times of the day or individuals. Problem is that this article (see below) does not tell the whole story. Maybe that is a good thing, because we really do not want to give criminals ideas but if you can rob a Subway on a street that is busy like Lake Street. These criminals have obviously figured out something if they got away on Lake street, I mean the traffic alone on Lake Street, should have stopped their getaway plans.

I am not saying you cannot go by your normal day to day activities but keep an eye out for a suspicious characters or activities. Most of these “signs” are easy to see and usually come from a mile away. Just being vigilant helps I know I sound like a mom, or even my mother but I rather be paranoid than robbed and/or dead.  The thing is when you are ordering food you do naturally drop your guard so kudos to the criminals for realizing this and striking at a place that you would not usually think of. Hell, this will make me be on red alert when I go to Five Guys or any of the businesses on Lake Street. It’s funny because when I think of it now there is a very light police presence on Lake Street (downtown), so the chances of it reoccurring are fairly high. Oh well, #staywoke bitches!

Here is the article I mentioned earlier:
