Crimestoppers of Morgan and Scott Counties are requesting information to assist the South Jacksonville Police Department in their investigations of recent vehicle burglaries and attempted burglaries.

During the past two weeks, during the overnight hours, officials say an unknown person or persons have entered and attempted to enter vehicles parked at businesses within the village. A laptop computer is among the items that have been taken.

Anyone with more information is asked to call Crimestoppers at 243-7300. A cash reward of up to $1,000 will be paid for information leading to an arrest.
