Uptown Woman Charged With Stealing CTA Van

Was she thinking, "Take that, service cuts!"?  Or just, um, not really thinking through the whole thing?

From WBBM's website:  "An Uptown neighborhood woman was charged with allegedly stealing a Chicago Transit Authority van while a CTA employee was cleaning the Blue Line on the Northwest Side Thursday morning, police said. Allissa Settles, 42, of the 4700 block of North Malden Street was charged at 5:14 a.m. Thursday with felony possession of a stolen motor vehicle, according to police."  Read more here.

  2. LOL. Who the &*@$ steals a CTA van? Man, I would love to learn the complete story.

  3. Alas, another problem resident of Mercy Housing.
