Sangamon and Menard County Crimestoppers says freezers, electronics, vending machines and monitors were hit late last month, sometime between the 24th and 28th. It likely caused around $13,000 in damage.

Anyone with anonymous information leading to an arrest could be eligible for a one-thousand dollar reward. Call Crimestoppers at 788-8427, submit tips via text message by typing TIP-672 plus a message and sending to CRIMES, or head online to www.cash4tips.us.
