On Sunday, August 11th, 2019 at 2:36 P.M. the Shiloh police were contacted by loss prevention officers from Target located at 3400 Greenmount Crossing in Shiloh reporting a retail theft in progress. While responding, our officers were advised the suspect was attempting to flee the scene. Shiloh officers arrived on scene and made a traffic stop on the vehicle. The suspect refused to step out of the vehicle and did not follow the officer’s directions. When the officer attempted to open the driver’s side door the suspect fled the scene, and the Shiloh officer received an injury to their wrist which did not require any medical attention. The vehicle disregarded all traffic signals and fled the scene. This case was submitted to the St. Clair County State’s Attorney’s Office for review.
