Crime Stoppers Crime of the Week (continuation)
October 12, 2017
Officer Mike Badger, Crime Stoppers Coordinator for Sangamon and Menard counties.
A robbery occurred at the Kentucky Fried Chicken on north Ninth Street in Springfield on October 6th, and police are attempting to identify the lone male perpetrator. At approximately 4:25 in the afternoon, with other customers present, a light skinned black male wearing a brown and cream striped hooded sweatshirt entered the business and implied that he had a handgun concealed under his sweatshirt. Although the weapon was not seen, any person who commits a robbery by use of force with a weapon, whether seen or implied, is presumed to have used a weapon and is in violation of Illinois Aggravated Robbery statutes.
