The Macoupin County Sheriff’s Office is asking for the public’s help in finding a man they believe may be connected to recent crimes. 30-year-old Robert McDaniels, Jr., of Carlinville, also know as “Little Bobby,” is currently wanted on a parole violation by the Illinois Department of Corrections.
The Macoupin County Sheriff’s Office issued a notice on its Facebook page yesterday about McDaniels, and said he is known to frequent locations in Macoupin, Montgomery and Sangamon counties, and could be carrying a gun. He was paroled in 2012 following previous convictions in Macoupin County for aggravated battery, theft and identity theft. The Macoupin County Sheriff told The Big Z this morning that McDaniels was spotted last night near the town of Pawnee in Sangamon County, but eluded police. If you have information on his location, contact your local police or the Macoupin/Montgomery Crime Stoppers at 1-800-352-0136, or the Macoupin County Sheriff's Office 217-854-3135 ex 1.
