Voter fraud in Illinois, who knew? And it always seems to happen in democrat controlled areas, why is that? Seems we need more than voter photo ID to ensure we have honest and fair elections in Illinois. Makes one wonder who gets your vote when your ballot goes into the machine in Adams County since you can't see the result?

All politicians give away our tax dollars but in Illinois it seems democrats do it more often. Oh that's right Quinn and the democrats have controlled and run Illinois into the ground for the last 12 years. The uninformed voters in Illinois won't see the corruption in this Christmas in October give away but they should see it for what it is, vote buying with their tax dollars.

yea, paying for armed security guards to go door to door intimidating people to withdraw their name from the Libertarian petition. Doesn't matter what party he is in he's definitely a Chicago gangster. And saying he is better than Quinn is like voting between a Turd sandwich and a soggy turd sandwich, no thanks.

Two improvised explosive devices found in Quincy

1 year, 6 months ago by Denise Donley

No one was injured in the IED incidents, but they were capable of causing harm

The Quincy Police Department is investigating two recent incidents involving improvised explosive devices.    

One of the IEDs was detonated prior to the incident in Boston Monday.   

No one was injured during either incident. Although both IEDs were small, they were capable of causing serious harm to anyone near to them at the time of their detonation. 

The first IED was found in the 1700 block of Jackson.  It was detonated sometime between 2:00 pm on Sunday, April 14th and 2:30 pm on Monday, April 15th.  This IED consisted of a CO2 cartridge and a number of BBs wrapped in newspaper and duct tape.  The only known damage was to a nearby residence.

The second IED was found in the 2000 block of Hampshire.  It was detonated just prior to 8:30 pm on Monday, April 15th.  This IED was what is commonly called a “soda bottle bomb” and did not appear to have any method for discharging shrapnel.

Residents are cautioned to stay away from any suspicious objects that have the potential to be a similar device and should immediately call 9-1-1.

If anyone has any information about the previously mentioned devices, please contact the Quincy Police Department (217-228-4470) or provide the information through Quincy Regional CrimeStoppers (217-228-4474).
