Robbery occurs at Champaign credit union

A credit union on West John Street was robbed around 10:20 a.m. this morning in Champaign.

The theft occurred at the Central Illinois Credit Union when two masked males entered the building. One of the men flashed a handgun, and ordered four employees, and one customer to lay on the ground. The men exited the building with an unknown amount of money, and no one was injured.

Two high schools near the area of the robbery were placed on ‘soft lockdowns.’ These lockdowns were removed shortly after the incident took place. This is the third robbery in the Champaign area in less than seven days.

17-year-old charged with burglary

According to Champaign police, a 17-year-old man was arrested Thursday last week and charged in Champaign County Circuit Court with residential burglary and criminal trespass to residence.

The incident occurred at 11:30 a.m. Thursday, when a woman who knew the man heard a crash from the back of her home in the 300 block of Nelson Court. When she went to investigate, she saw the man standing in the frame of her broken back door. The man fled the scene on foot.

She called police, and since she knew and could identify the man, they were able to catch him relatively soon thereafter.

If convicted of the more serious burglary charge, the man could face up to 15 years in prison.


Urbana couple indicted for stealing from youth sports group

A Champaign County Grand Jury indicted an Urbana couple today on felony charges of stealing from a local youth sports organization.

The husband was indicted on one count of unauthorized use of property, one count of receiving stolen property, and one count of greand theft. The wife was indicted on one charge of receiving stolen property.

The couple is accused of stealing funds from the Urbana Girls Fastpitch traveling softball program.

Once police were made aware of suspicious purchases on the program’s account, its financial records were subpoenaed. This revealed over $11,000 in purchases and transfers of money from the last two years, made by the husband, who was the executive director of the organization at the time.

It took officers around four months to determine what purchases where legitimate and which were not.
