Officer Mike Badger, Crime Stoppers Coordinator for Sangamon and Menard counties.
Crime Stoppers is looking for information about a late night break-in which occurred at Kohls Department Store on Veterans Parkway in Springfield on March 19th. In the incident, 3 persons smashed the glass in the entrance doors, quickly entered the business through the damaged doors, and grabbed armfuls of clothing which had been on display. The suspects were in and out of the store in a few quick minutes and removed approximately $5000 worth of Nike clothing items from the business. The suspects left the area in a white sedan with the registration plate covered which had been waiting for them in front of the store. Police have made several arrests in similar smash and grab incidents around the Midwest and hope someone has information about this recent attempt.
If you have information about this incident and police are able to make an arrest based on information you provide, Crime Stoppers will pay you a cash reward. You can anonymously call Crime Stoppers at 788-8427 with your tip or leave a tip on our website cashfortips.us.
