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.


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!”
