Rest Area Sign

Truckers beware!  There are thieves targeting you.

The Illinois Department of Transportation issued a warning saying they’re working with state police to combat a theft ring impacting the east and westbound Interstate 80 rest areas east of Morris.  Thieves are opening cab doors while truckers are sleeping and stealing their wallets.  At the eastbound rest area, IDOT says thieves are breaking into the cargo areas.

Truck drivers are urged to use extra caution, lock all doors and secure loads.
