Stoppers Crime of the Week
Officer Mike Badger, Crime
Stoppers Coordinator for Sangamon and Menard Counties.
This week Crime Stoppers is
looking for information which might help police solve multiple reports of
burglaries from residences at senior retirement communities. In these burglaries
and thefts, unknown persons forced entry into the dwellings during daytime
hours - when the occupants were not at home - and stole small items such as
jewelry and cash. Police feel that the thefts are related and need your
help with any information you can provide. If you see suspicious persons on
private property or in non-public areas of retirement communities, particularly
persons with backpacks, call police to check them out.
If you have any specific
information which might help us identify these thieves, call Crime Stoppers.
Remember, your identity will be anonymous and Crime Stoppers will pay you a
cash reward if your information leads to the arrest. You can call us at
788-8427, you can submit your tip online at cashfortips.us, or by text. Crime
Stoppers wants your information, but we don’t want your name.
