Ah, youthful looks. Some are blessed with looking ageless but choose to use this blessing for evil rather than good. Enter Jay Taylor and Sal Auditore, two 21-year-olds from Carol Stream accused of using their young looks to pose as high schoolers and steal from eldery living at an assisted-living home. According to the Sun-Times: "Taylor and Auditore gained entry to the homes between June 27-28. The two would discuss the school project, then one man would ask to use the restroom but proceeded to steal money, checks, credit cards and other items." While Taylor has been arrested and charged with two counts of forgery, Auditore is still at large; Taylor told authorities he last saw the alleged accomplice when he dropped Auditore off at a Greyhound bus station from where he was heading west, possibly to California. Those with any info have been asked to contact (708) 865-4700.
