    Crime Stoppers Crime of the Week November 5, 2015   Officer Mike Badger, Crime Stoppers Coordinator for Sangamon and Menard Counties. This week Crime Stoppers is focusing the Crime of the Week on an armed robbery which occurred at the Subway Sandwich Shop on Dirksen near Clearlake on October 22nd at approximately 2:30 pm.  In the incident, a white male in his 30’s with spiky dark hair placed an order and then, while at the register, held a cell phone for the employee to see announcing he had a gun and that he wanted all the money. He did not say anything so other customers were not aware the robbery was in progress. The subject left with a small amount of cash in a red -mid 90’s- Chevrolet pickup truck with a wide gold or tan stripe in the middle. Crime Stoppers needs your help to identify the suspect in this case. If you have any information, call us at 788-8427. Remember, all tips we get are kept anonymous.
