Crime Stoppers Crime of the Week
September 21, 2017
Officer Mike Badger, Crime Stoppers Coordinator for Sangamon and Menard counties.
Police are looking for two suspects involved in a forgery case in which an elderly victim’s caretaker, without authorization, wrote checks out of her personal account. Several Theft and Forgery warrants have been issued for the arrest of Springfield residents Joann Johnson and Tia Taylor, and police need your help in locating these suspects. I’ve posted photographs of the suspects on the Crime Stopper website Cashfortips.us in hopes that leads from the public will lead to their apprehension. Criminal incidents in which elderly or disabled people are victimized by those entrusted with their care are cruel crimes that must be stopped.
If you’re the first to give Crime Stoppers the information that helps bring these suspects to justice, Crime Stoppers will pay you a cash reward. Our rewards of up to ($2,500) twenty five hundred dollars are given to anonymous tipsters who provide information which leads to arrests in any criminal case. Leave your anonymous information at 788-8427 or leave a tip while you’re on the website checking out the pictures of the suspects–again that website is Cashfortips.us.
