Rockford Police are encrypted so details are minimal. Several Rockford Scanner fans sad there are numerous officers at the Northwest Bank on Rockton ave. It appears the bank was robbed. RPD are encrypted, so no information is available. It is safe to assume if they were robbed, the suspects (whatever they look like) got away. We will post updates as they become available.
