Rockford Scanner™: RS Fan Has Their Bag Stolen/Lost At Sinnissippi



Yasmin Esparza

Black leather camera bag lost/stolen at Sinnissippi. Cash reward if turned in with everything. Very very important to me.
I biked to sinnissippi on Sunday around 5PM. I remember stoping at the area on the image to rest, after passing most of the gardens to my right. I kept going up the rock river past the symbol and stopped at the new island. I was working on a land piece, and as soon as I go to take a pictures, MY CAMERA BAG IS GONE. With my camera, car keys, and some other personal stuff in it.

I am offering a cash reward if anyone turn it in, it’s of very sentimental value and would hate to lose it. I am a young artist who’s worked hard to even purchase it and it should go back to its rightful owner. Any information will help. Thank you.
