Crime Stoppers Crime of the Week
March 24, 2016
Officer Mike Badger
Crime Stoppers Coordinator for Sangamon and Menard counties.
Crime Stoppers is attempting to help police solve a series of robberies which began with a robbery to the Dollar General on North Grand east on February 23rd. Since then there have been several robberies with similar characteristics to dollar stores and convenience stores throughout the Springfield area and police believe that the same person may be responsible for most, if not all, of these robberies. The suspect is a black male in his late 20’s or 30’s who stands nearly 6 foot tall with a slender build and a thin beard or goatee. Crime Stoppers has posted surveillance photos of the perpetrator on this website Cashfortips.us. Look at the images closely, they’re pictures of someone police want to hold responsible for his crimes. Crime Stoppers pays up to $1000 cash for information leading to the arrest of criminals, and we want to see this person arrested and put in jail.
Call us on our anonymous tip line at 788-8427, leave a tip on the website, or leave a text tip (instructions are on the tab on this page). We don’t want your name, contact Crime Stoppers and earn a cash reward.
