Rockford Scanner™: Security Cameras Footage Of An Alleged Thief Stealing From A Vehicle in Rockford


From RS fan Jeremy M Ainfraim:
“My bag was stolen from my vehicle at 3022 Wallin ave in Rockford from my art studio that I own today. It had an iPad Pro and my wallet, Id , credit cards and my kids social security cards etc…

My bank informed me that she tried to use the card 3 times at the Auburn and Central BP and once at the family dollar store also at Auburn and Central at 2:00 today.

Appears as though she got one of the gas transaction to go through. Dollar General was super helpful in retrieving video footage

I can even see her using my card and it getting declined in another video. Anyway, be neat to catch her.

I do a lot for the community and stand strong as a light trying to create beautiful things in a tough neighborhood, but man this sucks ! Any help is appreciated”
