Theft From Annawan Banking Center Being Investigated

Annawan police are investigating a theft from the Annawan Banking Center of Peoples National Bank at 111 N. Canal St. in Annawan. The Henry County Sheriff’s Office and the Illinois State Police are assisting the Annawan Police Department with the investigation.

The theft was discovered in the early morning hours of Monday August 13, 2012. It appeared that a hole was cut through an exterior wall of the bank to gain access to a small safe. The contents of the safe have yet to be determined.

This crime follows closely after the June 26 theft of an ATM machine from the Shell Express at 306 N. Canal St. in Annawan. That crime remains under investigation.

Anyone with any information about either crime is asked to call Henry County Crime Stoppers at 800-227-2324. All calls to Crime Stoppers are anonymous and if your tip leads to a felony arrest you could be eligible for a cash reward.
