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

 

This week Crime Stoppers is seeking information about an armed robbery which took place at Sno Biz on Laurel at MacArthur at 8:30 in the evening on July 22nd.  In the robbery, a tanned middle aged white male with a scruffy beard approached the business from MacArthur and produced a black semi-automatic handgun which he cocked and pointed at the clerk. The suspect was approximately 5’10” with a thin build and had a feature which was described as a “lazy eye”. We’ve solved cases like this before with tips from the public, give us a call if you have information which will help solve this robbery.  The suspect made off with a small amount of cash.

 

             You can call Crime Stoppers at 788-8427, you can submit your tip on this website (cashfortips.us), or you can text us by typing TIP672, then enter the information you have and send it to CRIMES. We don’t want your name, we only want information about crime or criminals, and if your anonymous information leads to the arrest, we’ll pay a cash reward.
