Lawrence E. Draus of Peotone trafficking cigarettes. Living in his giant house with no recordable source of income. Coaching our kids in sports, we should all be proud of his actions. I will make sure that my son is NEVER on a team that he thinks he is going to coach. Here's an idea Larry, get a job like the rest of us and live a LEGAL life. You sure spent a lot of money on cigarettes while your other house was going into foreclosure.
