Crime Stoppers Crime of the Week
 June 22, 2017

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

Crime Stoppers wants to alert the public that in transactions originated on social media sites such as Facebook, Let Go, and Craig’s list, sellers have received look alike money - or in some cases- Counterfeit money - in exchange for their goods. Police have also taken reports in which sellers were robbed when meeting people who indicated they wanted to purchase items in these internet based person- to-person sales. Crime Stoppers urges you to utilize safe e-commerce zones, such as the one in the lobby of the Springfield Police station. 

You should also to examine each bill received prior to exchanging goods to avoid being victimized. Some invalid currency used in these transactions appears to be valid at first glance however if you look at it closely there are Chineese symbols on the bills or the bills are indicated to be Motion Picture currency. Although the Chineese currency and Motion Picture currency appears to be valid U.S.Currency, if you look closely at it you can see that it clearly indicates on the money that it is not legal tender. If you have any questions about the validity of currency you receive, hold it up to the light and check for a watermark in the paper of the currency that is not printed on the exterior of the bill.

Crime Stoppers wants to help police identify two suspects who- after being involved in a shoplifting incident at White Oaks Mall on May 25th- attacked and beat two people who witnessed the thefts. After punching and kicking the witnesses, one of the suspects pulled out a canister of pepper spray and sprayed the victims- and a five month old baby who was in a stroller nearby.  Police have surveillance video of the suspects and I’ve posted images on this website in hopes that somebody can help identify the suspects. In addition to being wanted for investigation of Retail Theft, these two suspects face charges of Aggravated Battery, Unlawful Use of a Weapon, and perhaps Endangering the Life of a Child.

In the Crime of the Week of this week I’d like to focus on an armed robbery which took place at the Circle K service station on Clearlake Avenue in Springfield. Shortly after 9 pm on June 3, a black male in his late 40’s or early 50’s -who implied he had a weapon- robbed the business and left on foot with the contents of the cash drawer. The suspect stood approximately 5'9" tall and had an average build. He was wearing mostly black clothing and had a white and black baseball cap on and older white tennis shoes with red laces.The Springfield Police Department has surveillance video from the robbery and Crime Stoppers has posted images from the surveillance on our website Cashfortips.us. If you can identify this subject or provide any information which leads to his arrest, Crime Stoppers will pay you a cash reward of up to $2500.

The Springfield community again faces a senseless shooting. This time a 28 year old pregnant female was shot as she stood outside a home at the 1900 block of South 1st Street on Tuesday May 30th shortly after 8 in the evening. Sheena Malone tragically succumbed to the fatal gunshot wound shortly after she was shot, however, doctors were able to perform an emergency C-section and deliver the victims unborn child at 23 weeks into the pregnancy. A dark skinned black male with low cut hair in a maroon four door vehicle was responsible for the shooting. Police believe it may have been related to other similar incidents but they do not believe Sheena was an intended target.
