The Decatur Police Department needs your help in solving this week’s crime of the week.

There have been several robberies to Decatur businesses over the past couple weeks.   In each of these robberies a lone suspect will enter the business armed with a crowbar when there is little to no other customers.  The suspect will then threaten the employees and take an undisclosed amount of cash.  The suspect then flees the business on foot in an unknown direction. 

The suspect is described as a heavier set b/m, dressed in a black hooded zip up shirt, and black pants.  The suspect has his face covered by either a black ski mask or balaclava.   

If you have any information regarding these robberies, please call Crime Stoppers at 217-423-TIPS.  You do not have to give your name.  Crime Stoppers will pay $500 or more for information that leads to an arrest on the crime of the week.  Thank you.
