Rockford Scanner fan Andrea Spaulding & Gabriella Spaulding sent us a few photos of a house fire on Mill rd near Cherry Valley.
UPDATE: Cherry Valley FD did a live house burn today for training.
Around 11:54 pm tonight several officers were dispatched to the gas station on Linden rd and Alpine.
Scanner traffic is saying a male pulled a gun on a female at this intersection. The female is hysterical, so the call taker is not able to get much information.
The suspect was last seen southbound on Alpine. The vehicle is a gray truck with the word “RAM” on the front. White male wearing a hoody, armed with a gun.
UPDATE: After police investigated, they believe the female had called 911 and made a false claim. They said that she was trying to get her boyfriend in trouble again. Officers are thinking about arresting her for misuse of the 911 and maybe more, via scanner traffic.
Just before 2 am this morning emergency personnel were dispatched to Perryville and Linden, just north of the intersection. It was originally dispatched as a vehicle that crashed into a pole. Once emergency personnel arrived on scene, they believe it may have been hit by a train. Unknown on injuries. No other information.
On Wednesday police were dispatched to Loves Truck Stop in reference to a semi truck that was stolen. The truck driver went inside the business, while inside someone stole his semi. Police were able to track down the semi via GPS that was installed in the semi.
Only one officer was available and was following the semi. The officer wasn’t able to stop the vehicle right away. A semi truck driving down the highway realized what was going on and assisted the officer in stopping the stolen semi. That truck driver took his own semi and moved in front of the stolen semi and block the stolen semi in.
They were able to successfully take the suspect into custody.
A Rockford Scanner fan said she saw police with their guns drawn on the suspect and had him on the ground with his hands on his head when she drove by the scene.
