I'd like to see the land lord prosecuted for being a slum lord, DuPage county why dont you go after the slum lords that rent to these type of low income, drug addicted criminals? Would you like to turn this into Cook Co. where there are shootings every day, gang banging, and syringes and garbage in the streets? Other citizens in Elmhurst, and surrounding cities need to read this and get damn angry and mad because these people are moving into your area too and driving on the streets you drive on with your kids in mini vans, stealing from your stores, and costing you tax payer dollars in more police time + energy dealing with this garbage.
