String of Burglaries Investigated

Story by WBGZ Radio

The Madison County Sheriff's Department is investigating a string of burglaries in the eastern part of the county.  They all happened on January 30 and 31 in Alhambra, New Douglas and Pocahontas, but police don't know yet if the robberies are connected.  Items stolen include electronics, tools and jewelry.

Some were home burglaries, and another from a vehicle.  A surveillance video of the suspect has been obtained, after a stolen credit card was used at a Collinsville business.  Investigators are looking for a young white male or female, thin build, wearing jeans and a grey in color hooded sweat shirt.  Anyone with information is urged to call the Anonymous Tip Line at 296-3000, or the Madison County Sheriff's Department dispatch line at 692-4433.
