Lincolnshire car burglaries

The following was posted the following on the Lincolnshire i-neighbors group

The St. Clair County SheriffÂ’s Department investigated about 5 car burglaries last night. The patrol shift, on their own, decided to conduct proactive patrols and surveillances immediately after these crimes were reported. During this two Deputies made contact with two subjects walking. It turned out they were some of the burglars. Stolen items were recovered on them and at their residences. Off duty Investigators were called in to interrogate the suspects and they confessed and identified a third suspect, who was then picked up.

One subject was taken to the juvenile detention center and the other two were detained in the county jail. Charges are pending. Investigators believe there is a fourth suspect but he has not been identified yet.

It should be noted
all of the burglaries were from UNLOCKED VEHICLES. They stated they tried several locked vehicles but moved on to the easier ones.

The investigation continues and more to follow
