Streator police investigating possible fire/burglary connection

Posted by wlpo on October 13, 2016

The problem of Streator’s frequent fires  is now compounded by burglaries in the same areas. Deputy Police Chief Robert Turner said firefighters went to a vacant burning structure at 1208 Wasson around 3:20am Wednesday.  While there,  the company got a second call around 4:25am  at 707 Bazore.

To add to the trouble, Turner said multiple burglaries have occur in the 600 block of Bazore, 700 block of Barnhart and 500 block of East Morrell.  Turner doesn’t know if the fires and burglaries are related, but, is asking for information. If you know something about these incidents, contact Streator Police, Fire Department or Crime Stoppers.
