Four Taken Into Custody for Hillsboro Burglaries

Wed, 08 Aug 2018 07:59:07 CDT

Four juveniles were taken into custody over the weekend in reference to a string of vehicle burglaries that have occurred in Hillsboro recently.

According to Hillsboro Police Chief Randy Leetham, two 16-year-old females and a 16-year-old male were taken into custody on Saturday evening. A 19-year-old male was detained in reference to the break-ins, but was later released. On Sunday evening, another 16-year-old male was taken into custody for burglary. All of the juveniles were later released to their parents or guardians. The investigation is still ongoing.

Leetham said that it is believed the burglary that occurred at Central Park Pool around the same time is not associated with the vehicle burglaries. He added that the investigation is currently active, and he is requesting that any information about the case be given to the authorities.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Hillsboro Police at 217-532-6120 or the Macoupin-Montgomery County Crimestoppers at 1-800-352-0136.
