Sangamon County Sherriff Investigators are looking for leads to help identify the person responsible for a burglary to Ma Ma Lee’s Sandbar Tavern on Mechanicsburg Road just outside Springfield in the early morning hours of July 25th. A lone suspect, whose image was captured in surveillance video, pried a door open to gain entry to the business and used a concrete circular saw to open a video gaming machine and an ATM in the burglary. Although extensive damage resulted from his attempt, the perpetrator left the business without accessing any money from the machines or from the business.

Areas in and around Springfield have been plagued by burglaries to motor vehicles all summer. This week, however, Crime Stoppers wants to discuss a specific problem related to these burglaries in hopes that you can help police identify the thieves. There has been a noticeable increase in cases in which suspects burglarizing a vehicle were able to steal a key fob or a spare set of keys to another vehicle and then return to steal the vehicle they had the key for.

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.

Crime Stoppers Thanks for Assistance!
July 20, 2017

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

In our weekly Crime of the Week news spots we try to bring attention to criminal incidents which have occurred in hopes that you can come forward with information to help police solve these crimes. Thankfully, you’ve stepped up in record numbers with information and we’re well on our way to our biggest year ever - and we’re not slowing down.

This week we want to recognize and thank our friends in the media who are a vital part of the success of Crime Stoppers. Local news outlets get our messages to you every week, and without this support, our program probably wouldn’t exist. Even though some crime will always occur and I’ll continue to report on it weekly, it’s important to remember -we’re living in a great area of a great nation, and our local media outlets strengthen our community with their service.  Our hats are off to those in the media who help us make the places in which we live, work, and play more enjoyable and safer for all.
