SORENTO FIRES APPEAR TO HAVE BEEN ARSON

 

Shoal Creek firemen were paged to a mobile home fire, just after 1:00 o'clock Thursday morning, at Main and Locust Streets in Sorento.  Greenville firemen were called for mutual aid to provide manpower and a pumper/tanker truck.  At approximately 2:36 AM, fire personnel discovered a second fire, only a few blocks away, at the intersection of Main and Clinton Streets.  Both fires were in vacant mobile homes about three blocks apart, and according to Shoal Creek Fire Chief Eric Ernest, both fires appear to have been arson.  The Illinois State Fire Marshal's Office was contacted and is investigating. No one has been charged.


MAN LINKED TO NUMEROUS BURGLARIES

 

The Madison County Sheriff's Office has been investigating numerous residential burglaries in the Godfrey area over the last couple of months.  29 year-old Craig Rynders of Wood River was considered a suspect, but no evidence could link him to these burglaries until Tuesday, Feb 17.  Detectives with the Wood River Police Department contacted officials with the Madison County Sheriff's Office in reference to Rynders being in their custody on alleged drug related and burglary charges.  Rynders allegedly had property with him at the time of the arrest that led detectives from Madison County and Wood River to pawn shops in Missouri.  After contacting the pawn shops, detectives were able to link Rynders to burglaries in Godfrey and Alton, and one in Granite City.  Officials recovered over $30,000 worth of property from the burglaries.  The State's Attorney's Office issued three counts of alleged residential burglary against Rynders. Bond was set at $200,000.
