Police search for bar burglary suspect

MAHOMET — Champaign County Crime Stoppers and the Champaign County Sheriff's Office need help solving a burglary at a Mahomet bar.

About 4:30 a.m. on Tuesday, Sept. 5, a woman tried to break into the back door of It'll Do 2 bar, 215 S. Lake of the Woods Road but did not get in.

About 7:45 a.m. a female wearing a dark colored hooded sweatshirt broke into the business through a window, looked around and left. Then at 9 a.m., the female again entered through the broken window, searched the place and stole deposit bags containing cash, and cigarettes. She left through the broken window.

She is believed to have walked through the woods behind the bar to gain entry.

The burglar is described as white, approximately 5 feet 4 inches to 5 feet 6 inches tall, about 140 to 150 pounds, and 20 to 30 years old. She was wearing a dark maroon or burgundy colored hooded sweatshirt.

If you have any information regarding these crimes, please contact Investigator Chad Carlson at 217-384-1213, reference S17-2579, or you may contact Crime Stoppers at 217-373-TIPS, 373tips.com, or through a free app for smart phones called P3 Tips.

Tipsters are always completely anonymous when contacting Crime Stoppers. All tips submitted are electronically stripped of any identifying information and processed by a third-party answering service, not law enforcement.

Cash rewards of up to $1,000 are paid for information leading to an arrest. Tipsters will never be asked their names and are given a secret code number to use when checking on a possible reward.

I'm intrigued by those ashtrays.

Did you ever consider that the area in the picture might just be a smoking area? Many bars have them,  I know you might be surprised to know that smoking is still legal in the state of Illinois. I have not been in this bar and you most likley have not either. But just to be on the safe side you and your buddy prof. Kaufman better get to Mahomet and ask if anyone is offended regardless of if they go the bar or not, and if they are  tell the bar owner you want the ashtrays removed!! Then come back here and tell us how that went.
