Man Arrested in Superman Memorabilia Robbery

Yesterday afternoon, September 15th, 2011 the Granite City Police responded to a Robbery, at which time it was learned a 76 year old male was robbed of Jewelry and money while in the 1800 block of Delmar, Granite City, IL. The victim was going to hire a male subject to clean up a vacant business in this block, when the subject forced the male’s jewelry and money from him. During this incident the victim received some minor injuries. Based on his description, we learned the Madison Police Department was dealing with our suspect on an unrelated incident. Officers were able to link this subject to the robbery and he was transferred from Madison’s custody to our custody. With the ongoing investigation of the Residential Burglary, it was believed this was the same subject responsible for stealing the Superman items in August. Investigators were able to link the suspect to this crime as well and recover all of the victim’s Superman memorabilia and return it to the owner. Today, both cases were presented to the Madison County States Attorney at which time the suspect was charged with: 1 count Residential Burglary 1 count Robbery 1 Aggravated Battery (Senior Citizen)
