Around 1 pm today several Rockford Scanner fans were reporting the Rockford SWAT team was raiding a residence in the 2900 block of Lapey st in Rockford. That is reported to be near Brooke rd. The reason for the raid is not yet known. But neighbors said 3 people were arrested and the police found drugs and guns. This is not yet confirmed. Still developing.
Keep up the good work sending in information. An informed community is a safer community.

RS fans are saying these are the alleged suspects that were detained, but not yet confirmed:
