Been a Catholic my whole life and sadly this is the norm, Many Catholics listen to the teaching of the church but do not hear them or do not believe in them. The Franciscans are a great down to earth bunch of guys, but they do not help in these matters. I have heard a lot of pro life talk come from St Francis on Sundays, then in the next breath you have this guy invited in, I don't get it.

" If they have a R behind the name that is all the typical low level Republican voter cares." (You see what I did there?) That first paragraph is kind of comical considering all the crap I have been getting because I want to vote Libertarian this time around instead of following the R.

Which statement are you referring to? In general your right, but if the alcohol tax is raised in this state. The Wal Marts of this town can absorb some of that, maybe all of it for a little while. Where Winking Market has to pass that on.

QPD is investigating a possible correlation between Quincy's incident and bank robberies occurring in Missouri, Iowa and Illinois

The Quincy Police Department is currently working with the Illinois Statewide Terrorism and Intelligence Center (STIC), FBI and police agencies in Missouri, Iowa and Illinois in reference to the First Mid-Illinois Bank & Trust bank robbery in Quincy. 

Based on information and video received from multiple agencies, QPD is investigating a possible correlation between our incident and bank robberies occurring in Missouri, Iowa and Illinois since late November. 

ORIGINAL STORY:

Investigators are searching for a man who robbed a bank near the Quincy Mall Wednesday afternoon.

The Quincy Police Department along with K9 search dogs searched the area around the First Mid-Illinois Bank & Trust at 3233 Broadway.

Officers searched the parking lots of various businesses around the mall and the residential area north of the mall.

Lt. Jason Simmons with QPD said police responded to the bank robbery at 4 p.m.

The suspect is wearing a blue stocking cap, red jacket or fleece, gloves, black rimmed glasses and grey sweat pants. He is a thin black male, 6 feet tall and is in his mid-to-late 20s.

The suspect did not display a weapon and ran west towards 30th St. and possibly entered a building following the robbery.

Police officers and K9 units searched the immediate area and haven't located anyone fitting the description in any of the nearby buildings.

Police said that they don't believe the suspect remained in the area.

Anyone with information about the incident should contact the Quincy Police Department at 228-4470.
