Checking local police reports, the Macoupin County Sheriff is putting out a call for help in locating a dump trailer which was reportedly stolen from Harvest Road near Illinois Route 4 about 2.5 miles north of Carlinville.  The theft was reported Monday morning.  

Alton Police and Fire responded to the report of a bomb threat at the Home Depot store on the Homer Adams Parkway in Alton just before midday on Monday.  Numerous emergency vehicles and the Secretary of State bomb squad were observed at the scene, but nothing was found.  It’s the second false bomb threat for the store this year.
