This is totally inaccurate. My home is not vacant. My son was home with friends and he doesn't live in Yorkville. My home was illegally searched without my knowledge, they were never read their rights and no drugs were found on their bodies. If this story isn't recanted my lawyer will be contacting the patch and the editor for false allegations. Homeowner of the "vacant" home
