Help Nab Burglars by Saving Information About Your Personal Property

Crime Stoppers Crime of the Week

April 26, 2018

Officer Matt Goulet, Coordinator of Crime Stoppers of Sangamon and Menard counties.

 

Residential burglaries occur in all areas and we’ve discussed in the past how citizens can take measures to prevent themselves from being victimized by making their home less vulnerable to being broken into and by reporting suspicious persons to police. This week we want to let you know how to take another pro-active step to fight burglary by keeping a record of serial numbers of property you own and photographing unique items such as jewelry. By saving this information for police if you are victimized - or better yet - storing this information on a free and secure database such as Leadsonline.com, it may help police identify a thief and could even assist in the return your property if you are ever victimized.

 

If you have any information about individuals who are involved in burglary or theft incidents, call the Crime Stopper tip line at 788-8427 and Crime Stoppers will pay a cash reward if your tip leads to an arrest. You can also leave a tip on this web page and you can get more information about the Property Inventory System by visiting Reportit.LeadsOnline.com.

Cold Case Reward Program EXTENDED

Cold Case Reward Program EXTENDED

Crime Stoppers of Sangamon and Menard Counties announces that the Cold Case Homicide Enhanced Reward Program scheduled to end at the end of September 2016 has been extended for one month and will conclude on October 31, 2016. The special enhanced reward program offers a $5000 reward for any information which leads to an arrest in any “cold case” homicide in Sangamon or Menard County, regardless of how long ago the homicide occurred. Cold Case’s were defined as any homicide investigation in which all leads were exhausted and in which all witnesses, suspects, or persons with information had been interviewed with no arrest having resulted. In some cases, ‘persons of interest’ or suspects were established during the initial investigation however an insufficient amount of evidence was available to prosecute the offender. In those instances, prosecution could have been initiated with a key piece of solid information or the location of physical evidence to corroborate something that was identified during the police investigation. Although there were several tips presented to Crime Stoppers which were forwarded to investigators during recent weeks, none of the tips wielded new information sufficient to close a case. With this one month extension of the program, we are hoping that somehow new leads will materialize.
