Police seek info on area burglaries

CHAMPAIGN COUNTY, Ill. (WCIA) -- Police want information about a rash of residential burglaries.

Several happened in the southeast section of Urbana, between December and January. Forced entry was made to homes through doors and windows.

Items stolen include flat-screen TV's, gaming systems and jewelry. Vehicles were also stolen when keys were available.

Most heists happened during the day and it's believed those involved used back yards to avoid detection.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers. Tipsters are always 100% completely anonymous.

All tips submitted to Crime Stoppers are electronically stripped of any personally identifying information and processed by a third-party answering service, not law enforcement.

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