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 6:30 in the evening, a homeowner at 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.
If you have any information about the person responsible for this robbery and burglary, give Crime Stoppers a call on the Crime Stopper tipline at 788-8427 or leave a tip on this website (cashfortips.us). Information about leaving a tip on the website or leaving a tip by text is on the right side of this web page. For your own safety, however, if you see or hear something unusual which could be a crime in progress, always call 9-1-1. Police officers are trained and equipped to deal with criminals and your safety is their primary consideration.
