Champaign police investigating burglary

RANTOUL - Champaign County authorities are seeking the public's help in their investigation into a burglary that happened on March 21.

Authorities say at about 1:40 a.m., A to Z Liquors in Rantoul was broken into.  Police say the surveillance video shows that the suspect in this crime is a tall white male, possibly in his 20's, and was wearing a hooded sweatshirt.

Police also say the suspect was also found on video surveillance before the burglary, without the sweatshirt and with a shorter black male, outside of the store.  According to authorities, it appears that the two men were having a conversation prior to walking away, after which the white male returned, broke into the store, and left after activating the store's alarm system.

We've included still frames from the surveillance video showing the suspect.  If you have any information, you are asked to call the Rantoul Police Department at (217) 893-0988.
