CARLISLE SYNTEC CONSTRUCTION ON SCHEDULE
The walls for the new addition at Carlisle Syntec started going up in April. Plant Manager, Andy Furman, recently told WGEL that construction on the new addition is on schedule and expected to be complete between mid to late July.
The new addition is going to be a warehouse where finished products will be stored. Carlisle Syntec currently leases space around Greenville and Nashville, IL. Furman said that the new addition will allow them to consolidate all their warehousing operations under one roof.
The warehouse will store roofing materials and accessories that Carlisle Syntec sells to the construction industry.
FBI PUBLIC CORRUPTION WEBSITE UP AND RUNNING
Weysan Dun, Special Agent with the Springfield Division of the FBI, held a conference June 9 in Fairview Heights to highlight the new FBI Public Corruption Website. On this website, you can report suspicion or knowledge of public corruption.
Dun told WGEL the reason the website was created was because public corruption is their highest criminal investigative priority. He said that it does not matter how large or small, when a public official abuses their public trust it is taken very seriously. He said that some of their best public corruption cases started with tips from people who had knowledge of criminal activity on the part of a public official.
The website address is www.reportcorruption.fbi.gov. When you are at the website, you will see various information regarding the FBI's public corruption investigations program.
The website also provides instruction on how to report suspicion of corruption by telephone. Also on the website you can fill out a complaint form and submit it online. Dun said that the whole point of the website is to make it easier for the public to report any suspicion of corruption to the FBI.
ONE QUESTIONED AND TWO BEING SOUGHT IN MURDER OF PORTAGE DES SIOUX MAN
The investigation continues today in the murder of a man whose body was found in rural Edwardsville earlier this week. One man has been questioned, but police are still searching for two others to question in the murder of 35-year-old Christopher Olsen of Portage Des Sioux. One person was taken into police custody Wednesday for questioning, but was later released. Authorities are still looking for two others. Major case squad detectives believe there may be a connection between this case and a murder in April of 19-year-old Kevin Harper-Williams who lived in Overland, MO. On Wednesday, police found Christopher Olsen's car in Overland. Olsen's body was found Monday morning by a passerby in the rural area of Route 140 and St. James Road in Edwardsville.
