RS fan sent us this: 8 squads went by our house tonight on kilburn just north of Auburn with just their lights on (no sirens) headed North on Kilburn. They were going up and down the streets with their lights shining towards people’s yard. Looked like they were looking for someone.

Smdh I really wish scanner feed was made available to the public. I have to drive home tonight from work in fear of what’s going on. I mean there seriously could be a mad man on the run and I have to go inside my home.

Luckily My husbands home and this is what he just text me. But Every night I make my husband wait for me outside in our garage just to insure my safety and the safety of our children.

We choose to live in the neighborhood we live in because its affordable. I cant see myself paying $1200 or more just to live on the east side.

Needed to vent for a min. Just was giving you guys a heads up. Alot of commotion going up and down Kilburn. THANK YOU for everything you guys do at the Rockford Scanner.
