Wood River Police Stay Busy

Story by WBGZ Radio

The Wood River Police Department has had a busy week, busting an alleged burglar in the act and investigating a couple of other possible crimes. Thursday morning, police got a call at about 5:45am of a burglary in progress in the 1,400 block of Williams. The call was reportedly made after one of the residents tried for about a half hour to capture the intruders inside the home.

A few of the stolen items were found nearby. Police are looking for two white males in this case. In another case, police are looking for two people believed to be associated with fraud and retail theft cases in the city. Surveillance photos of the pair can be found above. If you have any information on either case, you are asked to call 251-3113.
