Crime Stoppers Crime of the Week
December 8, 2016
Officer Mike Badger, Crime Stoppers Coordinator for Sangamon and Menard counties.
This week’s Crime of the Week involves an armed robbery to the Metro PCS store on Stevenson Drive on December 3rd at approximately 6:30 in the evening. Two black males in their late teens or twenties entered the mobile phone store and robbed the clerk of the day’s receipts and left the business northbound on foot. The perpetrators both wore black clothing and masks; handguns were used in the commission of the robbery.
For some reason the thugs that commit these type of crimes think the small amount of money they get in armed robberies is worth the years they ultimately spend behind bars for their crimes. Common sense tells us that way of thinking just doesn’t add up. Let’s lock these criminals up so they have time to learn that simple lesson.
