I sensed something wasn't right from the start, when my friend Matthew Bono-Thompson told me about his house guests and the series of unfortunate (and unbelievable) mishaps that left them "between places" at the moment.
Days turned into weeks and it was clear the pair were in no hurry to move on, then Bono and his husband began to notice valuables were missing.
When Bono found many of his items hidden among the guests' belongings, the police were called and charges were filed.
Within days of being thrown out of Bono's apartment on the Hill, the couple reportedly stole $500 and a Wii from a Granite City man who took them in - money which was to go for rent.
Today, the pair posted they were hitching to Florida with a gay trucker named Robert. If anyone comes across them do not let them in your home or vehicle.
They appear friendly until they realize you know about their history, and then they become threatening.
Angie Sutton, a disabled woman, said she was robbed by the pair. Many others are telling their stories in the comments.
