POPE COUNTY, IL (KFVS) - The sheriff of Pope County is asking for your helping finding a suspect in a burglary in his county.

Sheriff Jerry Suits says someone broke into a home in the northwest part of the county and stole several hundred dollars worth of jewelry and a knife collection.

Suits says a lot of the jewelry were heirlooms of the 80-year-old victim.

The knives were part of her husband's 400-piece collection.

Sheriff Suits is offering a reward from her personal account to anyone who has information that leads to an arrest and conviction in this case.
