If a pedestrian is in the crosswalk, YOU STOP FOR THE PEDESTRIANS
Loves Park Police said this is a law
The City has recently replaced the “yield to pedestrians” at Garden Plain and Riverside Blvd. because it was damaged by vehicles.
We were hoping that this type of damage was not being done intentionally. However, on Saturday, July 13, 2019, at approximately 5:30 PM, using traffic cameras, the attached photo was captured of someone intentionally running over and damaging the sign. Unfortunately, the license plates on the vehicle were unreadable.
This type of criminal damage to City property will not be tolerated. If you recognize the vehicle please report it to the Street Department Manager at 815-654-5040, so he may report it to the Police for further action. We ask that you do not post the vehicle information here. It will be deleted.
The City will continue to monitor this area to make sure this type of activity does not continue
Hi I was wondering if you could make a public post for me on behalf of my sister. she doesn’t have Facebook. Around 133 pm today the 14th she was driving on 251 going into Loves Park coming from Rockford right by Sinissippi and a tire flew across six lanes and hit her car and caused a lot of damage. She doesn’t know where it came from but was wondering if there were any witnesses that may have seen it. Any help is appreciated.
RS Source sent us the following in reference to a possible burglary suspect at a local grocery store:
” Unsure of who she is. But I was leaving work today, when a few customers gathered by my vehicle caught my attention. They told me “there’s a girl hiding in the weeds down there” my first instinct was a child. So I got more detail and apparently this lady was caught going from car to car in Meijer parking lot stealing. Once I was told they caught her and she is hiding I started recording. I will be sending that footage as well. It has now been confirmed that she has been arrested. Unsure of what was taken out of the vehicles she had taken over $500 worth from Meijer prior to going into the vehicles. They were able to catch and arrest her this afternoon! ”
