Kewanee Police Investigating Burglaries

The Kewanee Police Department is investigating a series of late night burglaries to Sinbad’s Vapor Lounge at 731 S. Tremont St. in Kewanee, IL. Multiple burglaries have been reported since September, 2015, and several hundred dollars worth of merchandise has been stolen.

In each case, entry has been made through a window on the side of the building. Surveillance video has shown a white male suspect, approximately 18 to 25 years old, with a thin build, wearing a dark colored sweatshirt, light colored sweatpants, and a cloth or bandana over his face. Although similar in appearance, it is unknown if all the burglaries have involved the same suspect.

In one incident, the suspect had apparently mistakenly opened the window of an adjacent apartment, resulting in a confrontation with the occupants of the apartment. The male suspect fled when police were called, and a separate broken window was found to the business.

Police need your help in apprehending the person or persons responsible for these crimes. If you have any information about this, or any other, unsolved felony crime, call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-227-2324.
