Police Blotter -- Kane County(from Chicago's Daily Herald.)
Someone threw a typewriter through a window of Bygone Days Antiques, 184 W. Main St., Burlington, removed a nailed-down rocking chair from the front porch, and used legs from the chair to break another window and a window on the property's garage, between midnight May 15 and 4 p.m. Friday, according to a police report. A piece of paper in the typewriter had curse words typed on it. The business has been closed for about three years.
Unloved and undervalued, once again the lowly typewriter descends into the crime world.
