Reward Offered for Information in Armed Robbery Investigations

The City of Carbondale and the City of Herrin are announcing a $3,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and the conviction of those responsible for a recent string of armed robberies in both cities.  In August, the Carbondale Police Department and the Herrin Police Department partnered together in a joint investigative effort regarding the armed robberies that have occurred in both Carbondale and Herrin.  The two cities continue to call upon the public to provide any information they may have regarding these crimes.  As an added incentive, the two cities have partnered to offer a reward for that information.

As a result of the joint investigation, the following incidents are being investigated as related:

The suspects in each incident have been described as two black males. The suspects have worn masks during the incidents and have been armed with handguns during each incident. One of the suspects is described as between 6’0” and 6’04” tall, weighing around 220 pounds. The other male is described as slightly shorter with an athletic or thin build. The Departments are seeking the public’s assistance in attempting to identify the suspects involved. These suspects are to be considered armed and dangerous and we do not want members of the public to approach them, but to instead dial 911 immediately.

Anyone with information about these incidents is encouraged to contact the City of Carbondale Police Department at (618) 457-3200 or the City of Herrin Police Department at (618) 942-4132.
