Armed Subject Arrested
Today, 02-01-2019 at 1:55 pm Officers from The Janesville Police Department were dispatched to 613 E Milwaukee Street for the report of an armed subject. The initial caller reported that the gun was not loaded.

Officers responded to the residence to find an elderly male standing on the front porch armed with a shot gun. The armed man was identified as Byron D. Long of Janesville.

Officers were arriving in the area and positioning themselves safely around the residence. As this was occurring, Long leveled the shot gun pointing it at one of the responding officers.

Officers continued to maintain their positions and work at resolving the issue. Members of The Janesville Police Department Hostage Negotiation Team began working on communication with the family and the suspect.

They learned through this process that there was in fact ammunition in the home for that weapon. Officers from HNT continued their efforts and at 2:39 pm Long surrendered without further incident.

The continuing investigation showed that Long was intoxicated and distraught about some personal issues.

He argued with members of his family pointing the firearm at them. The family left the residence and called 911.

A search of the residence lead to the recovery of a 12 gauge shotgun. Currently Long is awaiting transport to the Rock County Jail.

He will be detained on three separate charges for his actions today. The investigation is still ongoing at this time.

Rockford Scanner™: Medical Marijuana: Enrollment in the state’s Opioid Alternative Pilot Program began Thursday

(AP) — Illinois dispensaries have begun to process applications for medical marijuana through a state pilot program that offers patients access to the drug as an alternative to opioids.

Enrollment in the state’s Opioid Alternative Pilot Program began Thursday, The State Journal-Register reported.

The state Department of Public Health’s program will allow medical marijuana to be used in place of prescription painkillers. Patients previously had to have one of about 40 conditions, such as cancer or AIDS, to qualify for medical marijuana.

State officials hope the program will reduce opioid overdoses deaths. There were more than 2,000 opioid overdose deaths in Illinois in 2017, according to a report from the state Department of Public Health. The number of deaths has steadily increased from about 1,200 in 2014, the report said.

The expanded medical marijuana access is expected to double the number of medical marijuana users over the next year, said Dan Linn, the executive director of the Illinois chapter of the National Organization to Reform Marijuana Laws. The increased availability could help patients manage their pain more safely, he said.

“We think that this could save people’s lives, and we’re not exaggerating,” Linn said.

To qualify for the pilot program, patients must be certified by a doctor. Patients can then register for the program at a dispensary or the local health department for a $10 fee. People who qualify for the program must visit a doctor every 90 days in order to renew the certification.
