Crime Stoppers Crime of the Week
September 14, 2017
Officer Mike Badger, Crime Stoppers Coordinator for Sangamon and Menard counties.
During the overnight hours of September 7th, three businesses in Springfield were burglarized and police believe there were at least two people involved in the burglaries. The doors of Darcy’s Pint, Capitol City Bar and Grill, and West Side Pub and Grill at Donnie B’s, one after the other, were forcibly entered. Once inside the perpetrators caused substantial damage to video gaming machines, automatic teller machines, and safes. They were able to escape with a substantial sum of money when the losses at all three burglaries were totaled. Crime Stoppers considers this a major case and one in which we will offer a generous cash reward for information that implicates the responsible parties. If we get the right information, and it leads to arrests, we’ll pay up to $2,500 in cash to the anonymous tipster. Our tip line operates 24 hours a day, seven days a week at 788-8427; and don’t forget, you can also leave a tip anonymously on the Crime Stopper website Cashfortips.us. We want your information, not your name.
