  • Written by Bob Rakow

  An Oak Lawn resident caught a break and received some good advice Feb. 19 from the individual who burglarized his pickup truck, police said.
  The truck owner told police that $40 was stolen his wallet and $5 was taken from the center console of the truck, which was parked in the 4900 block of Wick Drive.
  But the victim found his debit card on the truck’s dashboard next to a note that read: “Lock your doors. Lucky I’m not a [expletive].”
  The note included an arrow pointing to the debit card, according to reports. A half-smoked cigarette also was found in the truck.
