QUINCY -- A Collinsville woman was sentenced Monday in Adams County Circuit Court to two years probation for her role in a string of business break-ins in 2016, and she must also surrender $40,000.

Jennifer Seyler, 45, pleaded guilty to one count of burglary Oct. 18. As part of the agreement, an additional count of conspiracy to commit burglary was dropped.

As part of her sentence she agreed to surrender $40,000 that was seized during a search warrant, which will go toward restitution. Other evidence seized by the Quincy Police Department will be returned.

Seyler was arrested Sept. 20, 2016, along with her husband, Bradley D. Seyler, after a multiple-agency investigation. Charging documents alleged she bought bolt cutters to be used in the Aug. 15, 2016, burglary at Tangerine Bowl, 3530 Maine.

Bradley Seyler was sentenced April 6 to 23 years in the Illinois Department of Corrections after pleading guilty to two counts of burglary and one count of possession of a weapon in a penal institution.

He was suspected in 23 burglaries in West-Central Illinois and Northeast Missouri in the summer of 2016 at businesses with ATMs and video gaming machines, including seven in Quincy.
