Threatening Notes Found at Glenwood High School

Crime Stoppers Crime of the Week

 February 16, 2017

 

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

 

Crime Stoppers is looking for information about incidents which occurred on consecutive days at Glenwood High School in Chatham on
February 8th and 9th. The incidents, which consisted of written messages on walls in bathrooms, were of a threatening nature and referred to possible shooting and bombing incidents on school grounds.

Although security and administrative officials took immediate action to safeguard students and staff, and nobody was physically harmed by the threats, these incidents disrupted the school day and impacted the proper educational environment which our students richly deserve. Incidents such as these are felonies in the State of Illinois and can be prosecuted with possible fines or jail sentences.

Police Still Need Tips in Alaysia Bennett Case

Crime Stoppers Crime of the Week

February 9, 2017

 

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

 

Just after the first of the year Crime Stoppers announced that we’re going to pay a $5000 reward for information leading to the arrest of the person, or persons, who were responsible for the shooting death of 19 year old Alaysia Bennett. As you recall, Bennett was an occupant of a vehicle along with four other persons, including a three year old baby, when she was gunned down for no apparent reason.  Detectives with the Springfield Police Department are actively investigating this case and following up on leads as they develop. We want the public to know that the $5000 cash reward is still in play and it’ll be given to any person who anonymously comes forward with information that leads to the arrest of the person responsible for the shooting.

If you have any information about this homicide, your anonymous call to the Crime Stoppers tipline at 788-8427 could earn you $5000 cash. You can also anonymously leave a tip on our website, cashfortips.us; remember we want your information, not your name.

Crime Stoppers Crime of the Week
 February 2, 2017

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.

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

Crime Stoppers is seeking help to solve a series of armed robberies, which may be related, which all occurred on January 23rd between 7:30 and 10:30 in the evening. In two separate incidents that evening, females walking near Bond and North Grand were robbed by a light skinned black male,possibly Hispanic, who stood 5’9” tall and had what was described as a muscular build. 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.
