Stolen Lawnmower

Friends, See this message below from a Bridgeview resident... Hi Fabio!  I wondered if you could please post this in your blog?  From a West End resident (Askin/California area) Returning home today I noticed the gate to the backyard was wide open. Thinking it was probably a Meter Reader who forgot to lock the gate I went up to said gate to lock it. It was then I noticed that my shed had been broken into. Checking the contents and determining what was missing I determined two lawn mowers were taken. One was a newer Canadian Tire Troy Built 1600cc (as in picture), the other a recently painted and upgraded Sears Craftman. A police report has been filed. A resident noticed 2 kids poking around everyone' s property and recalls seeing them with a red mower.
