Crime Stoppers Crime of the Week
February 16, 2017
Officer Mike Badger, Crime Stoppers Coordinator for Sangamon and Menard counties.
Crime Stoppers is looking for information about incidents which occurred on consecutive days at Glenwood High School in Chatham on
February 8th and 9th. The incidents, which consisted of written messages on walls in bathrooms, were of a threatening nature and referred to possible shooting and bombing incidents on school grounds.
Although security and administrative officials took immediate action to safeguard students and staff, and nobody was physically harmed by the threats, these incidents disrupted the school day and impacted the proper educational environment which our students richly deserve. Incidents such as these are felonies in the State of Illinois and can be prosecuted with possible fines or jail sentences.
If you have information about either of these incidents and police are able to make an arrest based on information you provide, Crime Stoppers will pay you a cash reward. All we ask is that you anonymously call the Crime Stoppers tipline at 788-8427 with your information or leave a tip on this (website cashfortips.us). Instructions for leaving an anonymous tip on this website or by text are posted on the right side of this page.
