|Warren County Authorities Seeking Information About Unsolved Felony Crimes in Monmouth & Kirkwood
|An ATV theft, a burglary and repeated damage at a business in Monmouth have authorities in Warren County asking for the public's help to put those responsible for the crimes behind bars.
The Monmouth Police Department and the Warren County Sheriff's Office are turning to Warren County Crimestoppers to gather more information as they continue to investigate several felony offenses that have yet to result in any arrests.
Police in Monmouth are specifically seeking information about criminal damage to property at the Music Factory at 216 West 1st Avenue, which is also the old Center Stage building. Authorities say someone damaged two windows in front of the building with a rock between May 17th and the 18th. A door window was also broken there during the overnight hours on January 31st, and someone blew up the mailbox on June 28th of last year, which also damaged the siding on the building.
Warren County deputies are investigating a burglary at the School House Cafe in Kirkwood that occurred between May 14th and the 15th. Officials say someone broke into the business but they didn't indicate if anything was taken.
Police say another incident happened at the Monmouth Farm King early Monday morning, when someone stole an all-terrain vehicle. Deputies report an older model brown Ford Bronco was seen in the store parking lot around 12:30 a-m Monday with the ATV owned by the business on a trailer. Officials say the vehicle exited the lot and left the ATV across the road at Burn's Auction Service.
Police urge anyone with information about the crimes or any others that remain unsolved in the Monmouth and Warren County areas to call Crimestoppers at 309-734-9363. Information that leads to an arrest and the filing of criminal charges in the cases is eligible for a cash reward of up to $1,000.
Callers to Crimestoppers do not have to give their name.
