Rockford Scanner



UPDATE: The victim was reported to have been stabbed approx 6 times during the home invasion.  The victim is expected to survive.  States Attorneys Office said several charges are pending, while police investigate the case.  The victim has filed an emergency order of protection against the alleged suspect.

Editors note: RS fan Crystal Ross  said the RPD information is wrong. But failed to provide any details.  She says there is more to the story than what the police have said, but will not say anything else.

She said it is RS job to find the details out, instead of her telling us.  We responded, we can only run with the information that is provided to us and gave her a chance to tell the other side of the story, and she has yet to respond.

So we can only run with the information from the RPD at this time.  If she chooses to tell us, or if someone else gives us information, we will be more than happy to update this.

Our information is from the victim Vinicio T. and also the RPD.

Rockford Scanner™: Security Camera Footage Of An Alleged Thief On the East Side

Rockford Scanner



 

We were sent the following security camera footage.

Send us your security camera footage, we will post it for you.
We will keep you anonymous, if you like!

Sources have reported numerous vehicles were burglarized in the area overnight.

“PLEASE HELP AND SHARE!!!

This is security footage from my house at 2:28am this morning. This kid was hoping to be able to steal from me and my family. We leave our front lights on every night and last night happened to be the one night we forgot. Luckily, my cameras don’t care if the lights are on or off.

We live in a nice neighborhood off Mulford and Harrison but unfortunately crime is everywhere in Rockford.

A neighbor’s daughter a few houses down was the victim of a strong arm robbery in her own garage just over a month ago.

You can see most clearly from the video versus the screenshots but we’d appreciate this being spread across Facebook for Rockford residents to see and if anyone can identify him to please let us know.

Since he’s on a bike, I would guess he can’t live far from the Mulford/Harrison area and perhaps even in our neighborhood in case anyone local has seen him riding around. As he is pulling out of the driveway, it looks like he is waving so I’m guessing there was at least one other person with him.

It’s a shame to have to post this, but if it prevents a future break in or makes this delinquent rethink his future actions, then I’m happy to. Thanks in advance for any help!”
