Santos IxmayThe arrest of a Godfrey man charged with criminal tresspass to residence does not have any obvious connection to recent a series of vehicle break-ins in Godfrey.  While 49-year-old Santos Ixmay of the 200 block of Delmar Avenue was arrested Sunday afternoon in the 800 block of Marc Drive in the Hopp Hollow subdivision, which is near the Alton / Godfrey border, investigators do not believe he ventured past that neighborhood.  

Alton Police Public Information Officer Emily Hejna says they had been called to the area to investigate a report of a Hispanic male going door - to - door begging for money:

Hejna comments

There were a series of vehicle break-ins around the D'Adrian, River Aire, and Pierce Lane areas of Godfrey over the weekend, but a spokesman from the Madison County Sheriff's Department says in most cases the thieves found unlocked vehicles.
