Attention Sandy Ridge and Conway Farms Residents. Please close your garage doors at night and make sure your garage walk-in door is locked. We have recently taken reports where people have had items stolen out of their cars over night. In each case the garage was left open or unlocked. We also encourage you to lock the door between your garage and the interior of your house overnight. If you see cars, or people, in the neighborhood late at night and you question if they belong, give us a call (333-8911) and let us check it out. We are happy to come out and check it out.

The meetings are held at the Police Training Institute located at 1004 S. Fourth Street, Champaign, and other local sites.

In addition, the police agencies involved in the academy seek feedback from participants about law-enforcement issues.

SCAM ALERT - Grandparents beware. Telephone scammers are calling with the claim that your grandchild is in trouble and they need you to send them money. They can be very persuasive and will play on your emotions. DO NOT send them any money. We know of at least one of these calls being received here in Mahomet. Leroy Police posted a similar warning yesterday.

Hey Mahomet folks how about helping out our friends at Mahomet Parks & Recreation Department. We are blessed to have a parks and rec department that does so much (with a very small staff) for our community.

TRAFFIC ACCIDENT: 47 South on the overpass over I-72. Looks like they could have 47 shut down for a little bit, so avoid this route if possible.

If you'll be heading toward Mahomet on I-74 any time soon, we advise you to find another route home. There is a traffic accident at the I-74 and I-57 interchange that has westbound I-74 traffic backed up. Safe travels!

We have been working with school administration on these reports. Those involved have been identified and we have had spoken with them directly. We do not believe there is a credible threat against the school or anyone in the school. As Dr. Hall said, out of an abundance of caution we will have an increased presence at MSHS.

Eastbound traffic on I-74 is at a standstill between Mahomet and Champaign. Please avoid the area and find an alternative route.

In the past couple of weeks we have seen an increase in activity related to car burglaries. We have reports of people looking in and going through cars in the Briarcliff subdivision, the Edgewood area and in the 700 block of Dianne Lane. Please lock your cars if they are left out outside and do not leave valuables in the car. We rarely see force used to enter cars. The bad guys generally pick on unlocked cars and trucks.

Stay safe out there this weekend, everyone! Sunday sounds like a good day for a Netflix marathon and not leaving the house. However, if you must leave, drive with caution and give yourself plenty of time to get to where you’re going.

Mahomet residents noticed a lot of police activity around the high school this morning. Everything is fine and everyone is safe. Area police officers were involved in a chase of a suspect wanted for several crimes in Champaign and the surrounding area. The subject was caught and taken into custody on the high school grounds. Several students were in the building at the time of the incident. School staff took appropriate action and secured the students until the suspect was taken into custody and removed from the scene. The suspect DID NOT enter the building. The Champaign Police Department will release additional information to the local media as it becomes available.

Many thanks to the Mahomet Streets & Alley guys, Mahomet TWP, and IDOT for working hard this holiday weekend to clear the roadways to grandma’s. Merry Christmas!!

Hey, Mahomet! The roads are pretty darn gross out, so if you need to leave the house today, allow yourself extra time to get to your destination. Drive safe and enjoy your holiday!

A friendly reminder from our friends over in District 10!
