WOOD RIVER — Police are looking for a suspect in a burglary investigation at an automotive business.
According to a press release from Deputy Chief Dan Bunt, at approximately 8:30 a.m. Thursday, June 18, officers responded to Affordable Tire, 100 E. Edwardsville Road, to investigate a burglary. Officers discovered forced entry to the business and several customers’ vehicles were entered. Upon further investigation, police determined a pickup was stolen from the business’ lot.
The stolen vehicle was ultimately located across town. Physical evidence from the business and the truck will be sent to the Illinois State Police Crime Lab for analysis.
