A joint investigation led by the Sangamon County Sheriff's Office into multiple gaming machine burglaries has been solved. Cody Angeli-Snow, a 31-year-old man, was arrested on February 15, for his involvement in the burglaries. According to the detectives involved in the investigation, Snow was found to be responsible for the burglaries that took place at Cottage Inn, Goodfellas, and Coz’s Pizza.
Further investigation revealed that Snow was already on parole through the Illinois Department of Corrections for similar crimes. He is currently being held in the Sangamon County Jail on a $500,000 bond, which was recently reduced to $50,000. Snow was charged with multiple counts of burglary and theft.
On February 28, Bond County issued an arrest warrant for Snow for additional gaming machine burglary charges in their jurisdiction. Snow is now awaiting extradition to Bond County. It is also suspected that Snow has been involved in similar crimes in East Peoria, with pending charges.
These burglaries resulted in hundreds of thousands of dollars in damages, with tens of thousands of dollars in cash being taken from the gaming machines. The victims in these cases are not only the State of Illinois but also the gaming companies and local businesses that offer these machines to their customers.
The Sangamon County Sheriff's Office urges anyone with information on this case to come forward and report it to the authorities.
