BURGLARY TO LOCAL INSURANCE COMPANY FRIDAY NIGHT

 

Greenville Police are investigating a burglary, overnight Friday, to Recreational Insurance.  Police believe entry was gained through the west side of the building by breaking a glass window.  Several drawers and cabinets were open.  At the time of the report, a digital camera, valued at $560, was missing along with $400 cash.  Police also say that it appears someone tried to gain entry to Wings-N-Things, but failed.  The incident is currently under investigation.

 

Greenville Police are also investigating damage to two mailboxes on Cardinal Drive, sometime after dark Saturday evening.


NEW EMAIL SCAM THREATENS HARM TO RECIPIENTS

 

Another new scam is popping up in email boxes across the country.  First appearing in December, the scam email threatens to kill the recipients if they do not pay thousands of dollars to the sender, who reports to be a hired assassin.

 

Nearly 115 complaints have been received so far in regards to this scam, however, no money has been paid to the senders and no threats have been carried out. Special Agent John Hambrick ,with the FBI's Internet Crime Division, says this is simply a hoax, therefore don't respond to it; instead file a report at www.IC3.gov.  He explains that people shouldn't get too worried if personal details are used in the email, as personal information for anyone is usually readily available on the internet.

 

Hambrick says that this, like any other scam, is used for the purpose of getting money from unsuspecting victims.  His best advice is to not open, and delete right away, any emails that come from an unrecognized sender.

NEW BRIDGE TO CONNECT ILLINOIS AND MISSOURI

 

A new bridge will be connecting Illinois and Missouri within the next decade.  According to State Senator Frank Watson, the bridge will help ease traffic congestion, improve safety and boost economic development in the Metro East.  He explained that in recent months, the two states had been at odds over whether or not the new bridge should be a toll bridge.  Missouri favored such an approach; Illinois did not.

 

The new bridge will be a cable-stayed design that consists of one or more towers or pylons with cables supporting the bridge deck. The total cost of the project is expected to top $640 million, that includes bridge and roadway connection construction.  Officials say that work could begin as early as 2010 with completion in 4-6 years. The new bridge will connect I-70 at the I-55/64/70 interchange in East St. Louis to I-70 near Cass Avenue on the Missouri side.
