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

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. 

 If you can identify the individual responsible for this burglary or if you have other information which leads to an arrest -and you’re the first person to provide the information- Crime Stoppers will pay you a cash reward. Leave an anonymous tip by calling the Crime Stopper tip line at 788-8427 or leave your tip while you’re on this website (
