Chatham Police are looking for information about a commercial burglary at Discount Tobacco on Main Street in Chatham and Crime Stoppers could use your tips to help solve this crime. On July 23rd shortly after 11 p.m., an unknown person smashed a window to gain entry to the business and – once inside – stole several cartons of Newport cigarettes and the cash register which contained a small amount of currency. Images of the suspect were captured from surveillance video which showed the suspect to be wearing black shoes with white trim at the bottom and light colored blue jeans with a pattern on the back pockets. The suspect wore a dark hoodie over his shirt to conceal his identity.

This week we want to recognize and thank our friends in the media who are a vital part of the success of Crime Stoppers.

Crime Stoppers Crime of the Week

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

Police have taken several reports of burglaries in Springfield and Crime Stoppers wants to remind you that there are some basic crime prevention strategies you can employ to decrease your chances of being victimized. First and foremost, always lock doors to garages, storage sheds, and vehicles. So many crimes could be prevented by merely making your property a harder target for criminals to hit. Second, use security lights and motion lights at the exterior of your home and put lights on timers inside, criminals love darkness and always take advantage of it. These basic steps won’t prevent all burglaries, but they will help reduce crime numbers significantly.
