GLEN CARBON, Ill. (KMOV.com) – Police in the Metro East are searching for a vehicle wanted in connection with an overnight home invasion in Glen Carbon.
Police said a “be on the lookout” bulletin was sent around 12:30 a.m. Monday for a blue Ford van last seen heading in the direction of I-270. The home invasion happened in the 4500 block of South State Route 159.
This is not the first time the house has been the scene of a crime.
A search warrant was executed by federal investigators in January after an elderly woman was found frozen to death near the house.
The woman's son was arrested on unrelated battery charges just days before the woman was found.
Illinois State Police confirmed to News 4 that van was wanted in connection with the home invasion, but details of the home invasion were not immediately released.
