The Rockford Police Narcotics Unit, acting on citizen complaints alleging on-going narcotics sales, began a month-long investigation focusing on drug sales in and around 511 North Church Street.
On Tuesday, January 9, 2018, Rockford Narcotics Detectives executed a search warrant in an apartment at 511 North Church Street. They also located and arrested a subject, later identified as Marvin McDonald, near the corner of Court Street and West State Street. Cocaine and United States Currency were located during the investigation. The investigation was reviewed with the Winnebago County States Attorney’s Office who authorized the listed charges. McDonald was later lodged in the Winnebago County Jail. A photo of McDonald is attached.
ARRESTED: Marvin McDonald 35-years-old Rockford, IL
CHARGES: Possession with Intent to Deliver Cocaine (1,000 feet of a Church)
The charges against McDonald are merely accusations and not evidence of his guilt. As with defendants in all criminal cases McDonald is considered innocent unless proven guilty in court.
This is an on-going investigation and no further details are available at this time. Further information will be released should it become available.
