Warrants for Arrest Issued in Forgery and Theft from Senior Citizen

Crime Stoppers Crime of the Week
 September 21, 2017

Officer Mike Badger, Crime Stoppers Coordinator for Sangamon and Menard counties.

Police are looking for two suspects involved in a forgery case in which an elderly victim’s caretaker, without authorization, wrote checks out of her personal account. Several Theft and Forgery warrants have been issued for the arrest of Springfield residents Joann Johnson and Tia Taylor, and police need your help in locating these suspects. I’ve posted photographs of the suspects on the Crime Stopper website Cashfortips.us in hopes that leads from the public will lead to their apprehension. Criminal incidents in which elderly or disabled people are victimized by those entrusted with their care are cruel crimes that must be stopped.

The Springfield Police Department is investigating a burglary to the Burger King located on Veterans Parkway near White Oaks Mall which occurred during the overnight hours of August 23rd . Crime Stoppers is looking for tips to help solve this crime and close this case. The incident occurred between 1 and 2 am when a thin male made entry to the business and was able to defeat the safe and escape the business prior to the arrival of police. Although surveillance video did not provide police with a clear image that can be identified, investigators believe there is someone who can provide that identifying information or other details about the commercial burglary and theft.

On August 23rd between noon and 1pm while a state employee was walking during her lunch break near Pasfield and Cedar Street, a male subject jumped from behind a bush and knocked the pedestrian to the ground. As she fell, the victim maintained ahold of the cell phone she had in her hand, however, while on the ground the perpetrator forcefully grabbed the phone from her hand and ran eastbound. The suspect was described as being a tall, thin black male in his 20’s or 30’s who was wearing a dark T-shirt and jeans. The stolen phone was a black I-Phone 7 plus in a black case.
