Crime Stoppers Crime of the Week Message August 27, 2015   Officer Mike Badger, Crime Stoppers Coordinator for Sangamon and Menard counties.   This week Crime Stoppers wants to remind you that with schools opening there’s increased pedestrian traffic not only near the schools, but also at bus stops all around the area. Familiarize yourself with these areas and - to play it safe - why not leave for your morning and afternoon travel 5 minutes earlier every day so you won’t be rushed when traveling through school speed zones or following school busses which make multiple stops. You don’t need the stress, and safe driving is especially important this time of year. And remember, stay off cell phones when driving. Penalties are enhanced in school zones and police will be aggressively checking for infractions.                Although Crime Stoppers doesn’t take tips on traffic violations, remember to call us at 788-8427 with your tips related to criminal matters. You can leave tips anytime on this website - cashfortips.us – or leave a tip by text by following the text instructions in this page. We never want your name, but if your anonymous information leads to an arrest, we’ll pay a cash reward.

Crime Stoppers Crime of the Week August 13, 2015 Officer Mike Badger, Crime Stoppers Coordinator for Sangamon and Menard Counties. This week Crime Stoppers is looking for information about an incident in which a number of fire damaged apartments in the Chatham Hills Apartment complex were entered several days after a fire had caused extensive damage to the building. It’s possible that neighborhood residents thought that the perpetrators were construction workers or maintenance employees when entry was forced into the fire damaged building and apartments. Several units were ransacked and a few of the apartments were found to have items, including electronics and jewelry, missing from them. Did you see anything on August 10th on Candlewood Drive which looked a little unusual but you didn’t think at the time it was a criminal act? If you did, or if you have any other information which might help solve this crime, call Crime Stoppers- you could earn cash reward. You can reach us at 788-8427, or you can submit your tip by text or on this website, just follow the instructions on this page.  Remember Crime Stopper tips are always kept anonymous.
