Several times now, including on May 31, Yesterday's Books on McHenry has been victimized by vandals. Owner Phillip Gauthier points out remaining scarring from the breakin at the store's emergency exit door. He also has heard footsteps on his roof and had Dumpsters in the shopping center set aflame. The cops don't have the officers to respond, and property criminals spend little time in the jail when they're caught. The bookstore represents a microcosm of the problem in the county.
