Crime Stoppers | Scottswood neighborhood burglars sought

URBANA — Champaign County Crime Stoppers needs help finding the people responsible for several burglaries on the east side of Urbana.

Police report that over the past two months, there have been 10 burglaries to homes in the Scottswood subdivision during the daytime or early evening while residents were away.

The burglars appear to be getting in through unlocked windows, often to bathrooms. The intruders rummage the homes then leave out a back door.

If you have any information on these break-ins, contact Crime Stoppers at 217-373-TIPS, or via the P3 Tips mobile app.

Tipsters are always completely anonymous when contacting Crime Stoppers.

All tips are electronically stripped of any personally identifying information and processed by a third-party answering service. Tipsters will never be asked their name and are given a secret code number to use when checking on a possible reward. Cash rewards of up to $1,000 may be paid on tips that lead to an arrest.

Crime Stoppers reminds the public that its "Gun Bounty Reward" program is ongoing. Anyone who provides a tip leading to the arrest of a person who uses a gun during a felony will receive $1,000.
