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

This week Crime Stoppers is offering a cash reward for information about an incident which began as a residential burglary and ended up evolving into a robbery to a person. On January 30th at 6 o'clock in the evening, a homeowner in the 1000 block of North 12th returned to his home and discovered a door to his residence open. The victim went inside to investigate and found a thin black male in the residence who demanded the victim’s money. After getting the few dollars the victim had on his person, the suspect left on foot. It was later discovered that several items had already been removed from the residence.

In both instances the cowardly perpetrator forcefully pistol whipped the female victims in the face, one causing injuries which required treatment at a local hospital.

Seeking information on Washington Park vandals

Seeking information on Washington Park vandals

The Springfield Park District has been seeing a rash of vandalism at Washington Park over the past few weeks.

Derek Harms, executive director of the park district, said Tuesday that someone damaged the bathroom near the pavilion and broke into the tennis pro shop, though nothing was taken.

Construction equipment also has been broken into, and graffiti was spray-painted near the entrance to the park.

Felony Criminal Damage at Washington Park

 Crime Stoppers Crime of the Week
 January 19, 2017

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


Not all criminal acts involve shootings, robberies, or burglaries yet all criminal acts have an effect on the community. In late December there were two break-ins to buildings at Washington Park and the culprits inflicted over $5000 worth of damage to park property. This felony was followed up a few nights later by further acts of vandalism to park property and again, costly damage resulted. The perpetrators were likely juveniles who falsely reasoned that since nobody was injured, there was no harm. The fact is, however,  there is significant harm to the very society we live in when we can’t have public parks that are safe from vandalism and destruction.
