From the RPD: On Tuesday June 27, 2017 at around 6:30 pm Detectives of the Rockford Police Department received information about a subject, wanted on an Rockford arrest warrant, staying at the Clayton House Motel at 4800 N. 2nd St. in Loves Park, IL.
The subject, Damonte T. Hill, was wanted for an Aggravated Battery with a Firearm incident that occurred on Monday June 26th in the 2000 block of Auburn St. in Rockford, IL.
Rockford Police detectives and officers responded to the motel and met with officers from the Loves Park Police Department and deputies of the Winnebago County Sheriff’s Department.
Detectives, officers and deputies determined Hill was in a particular motel room and attempted to make contact with him.
The suspect would not speak with any of the officials on scene so the Rockford Police Department Crisis Negotiators and SWAT Unit responded.
Rockford Police Department Crisis Negotiators made contact with Hill and at around 2:45 am he peacefully surrendered to police and was taken into custody.
The Rockford Police Department would like to thank Loves Park Police Chief C. Lynde and his officers, Loves Park Fire Chief P. Foley and Winnebago County Sherriff’s Department Lieutenat A. Miceli and his deputies for their assistance
Rockford Scanner fan said someone came out and surrendered. And the police on the microphone have been quiet since then.
Police are calling the subject out with a large microphone. They are calling the suspect out by name. He is reported to be in room #149 of the Clayton House. The person they are calling out over the microphone just had an Aggravated Battery charges filed on them on June 26th.
The charge: Count 1 AGG BATTERY/DISCHARGE FIREARM Class X, June 26, 2017 in Rockford.
Reports saying that he has many weapons with him inside the room. Police are trying to negotiate with the suspect. He is also a parolee.
This appears to be a standoff situation with a very dangerous individual. The police have snipers on nearby rooftops. The SWAT team command vehicle and even the SWAT team special MRAP vehicle on scene. Numerous officers are on scene with riot shields and long rifled guns.
Note: All we can confirm at this time, is there is a large police presence at the Clayton House. The other information is not confirmed yet. Scanner traffic is saying the police met up just around 8 pm tonight near there to “do an assignment” and then the police have been on scene since then. It is 12:30 am and fans still reporting a large police presence on scene.
This might be a standoff. But nothing is confirmed yet.
Note: Initial reports from citizens were saying a possible body may have been found. But that was unconfirmed. It was a standoff, and no body was found
Around 11 pm tonight (shortly after) several emergency personnel were responding to a fight and shots fired on Rockford West side. It happened in the area of Green and Waldo. Details are minimal due to the police encryption. But there is reports of a fight on Green st. (rs FANS REPORTING A VICTIM WAS FIGHTING OFF ROBBERY SUSPECTS)
Shots were also fired in the area. (RS fans said this was a robbery with shots fired. Can not confirm, due to the encryption) No reports of victims at the time of writing this. No reports of suspect information, due to the encryption.
Several Rockford Scanner fans are reporting a Rockford school is being repeatedly vandalized. The school is being broken into and multiple windows are being broken out at the Lewis Lemon school at 1993 Mulberry St.
They are reporting several different incidents where the school was vandalized recently.
Several people are worried about the safety of the children (Summer camp kids), due to the amount of broken glass inside the school. And the amount of damage being done and the situation not being publicly addressed by the police or media. And they want the citizens in the area to be on the lookout for anyone suspicious in the area and to report any suspicious activity, so the person or persons responsible are caught.
No suspect information at this time. But the Rockford Police are aware of the situation.

The University of Illinois Police Department is searching for Yingying Zhang, a 26-year-old visiting scholar who has been missing since June 9. We know our campus community has questions, and we want to keep you updated on the investigation.
Investigators continue their work to analyze security camera footage, electronic information, tips and other information. This is a very meticulous effort which must proceed quickly but thoroughly. The FBI has some of the best experts in the country scrutinizing every detail that may help break the case.
In addition to the English version, the FBI has produced the missing person flyer in Chinese (simplified and traditional). Please continue to download, print and distribute the flyers widely.
The Zhang family shared with us additional photos of Yingying. Please share them widely.
If you have any information about Yingying’s whereabouts, please call 911 or 800-CALL-FBI. You can also leave anonymous tips with Champaign County Crime Stoppers by calling 217-373-TIPS or by visiting http://373tips.com. Tips leading to an arrest or Yingying’s location are eligible for a reward up to $40,000 through Crime Stoppers or $10,000 through the FBI.
Yesterday evening, representatives from the University of Illinois Police Department, FBI, Champaign County Crime Stoppers, Counseling Center, International Student and Scholar Services, Chinese Students and Scholars Association, and other groups held a public forum to discuss community support for the search for Yingying.
FBI Assistant Special Agent in Charge Jon Holloway expressed that the FBI has made this case a top priority nationwide. He said he has access to the full resources of the FBI, and more agents are working this one case than typically work the Springfield division’s entire 84-county region.
U. of I. Police Chief Jeff Christensen said that the department has also enlisted every available technological and human resource to work the case.
Investigators expressed again that, though they wish they could divulge more information about the case, they cannot comment on specific details of the investigation in order to protect its integrity and maintain the best possible chance of finding Yingying.
From Police Chief Jeff Christensen’s email message to the campus community:
“We realize that this has been a source of anxiety for our entire campus community. Our concern for Yingying grows with each day that passes, and we have personally witnessed the pain this uncertain time has created for her family members, friends and colleagues. While we cannot share specific details on the investigation in order to maintain its integrity and direction, we continue to make progress in our search, and we will not give up until we find her.”
The Zhang family announced on Monday that they are working with Champaign County Crime Stoppers to offer a reward of up to $40,000 for information leading to an arrest in the disappearance of Yingying Zhang.
Those who may have information can submit anonymous tips to Champaign County Crime Stoppers by calling 217-373-TIPS (8477), online at http://373tips.com or by using the P3 Tips mobile app available on iOS or Android. Tips must be submitted through Crime Stoppers to be eligible for the reward. The Crime Stoppers reward is separate and not linked to the $10,000 reward offered by the FBI for information leading to the location of Ms. Zhang.
Calls and messages to Crime Stoppers are routed to a third-party call center, which strips all identifying information from the call before forwarding the information to police. Callers are assigned a unique identifying number.
Information from the public continues to be an important part of the investigation, and detectives are following up on hundreds of tips already received.
Investigators from the University of Illinois Police Department, Illinois State Police and FBI continue to work around the clock, taking advantage of various technological resources and following leads.
We again thank community members for supporting Ms. Zhang, her family and friends, and for their continued assistance in the investigation. Please continue to look out for and support each other.
The FBI is now offering a reward of up to $10,000 for information leading to the location of Ms. Zhang.
Investigators from the University of Illinois Police Department, the Illinois State Police and the FBI continue to move forward with the investigation, but information from the public remains an important part of the case.
Anyone with information concerning the disappearance or the whereabouts of Ms. Zhang can contact the FBI at 1-800-CALLFBI (1-800-225-5324) or tips.fbi.gov. Additionally, those wishing to submit information can do so completely anonymously by contacting Champaign County Crime Stoppers at 217-373-TIPS (217-373-8477), 373tips.com or via the P3 Tips mobile app.
Law enforcement and university officials on Saturday also met with Ms. Zhang’s family, who arrived in Champaign-Urbana. Accommodations have been made for them to stay on campus while the search continues.
The U of I Community Credit Union has set up an account and a GoFundMe campaign to cover the family’s living expenses during their time on campus. Those wishing to donate may do so through the website or by visiting any of the U of I Community Credit Union’s three branches.
The University of Illinois Police Department again thanks the community for its continued support of Ms. Zhang, her family and friends, and those who have volunteered to find Ms. Zhang.
This evening, representatives from the University of Illinois Police Department, Office of the Dean of Students, International Student and Scholar Services and others met with students and visiting scholars to provide more insight and share information about ongoing investigation, as well as introduce some resources that may find useful. This FAQ sheet also was distributed, and it addresses common questions which community members have had on social media and elsewhere.
Police officials are urging that community members not misinterpret a lack of updates as a sign that no progress is being made. Dozens of police officers are working on the case, and the entire University of Illinois Police Department — as well as the Illinois State Police and FBI investigators working the case — are singularly focused on finding Ms. Zhang.
Although the investigation is moving forward very quickly, we are unable to comment on many specifics of the case both to protect the integrity of the investigation and make sure we can find Ms. Zhang as quickly as possible.
Detectives have used vehicle records to identify a number of registered owners of the type of vehicle in the video, and they continue to speak to those owners. Investigators continue to utlize image enhancing technology available through the FBI. Information about the search is being shared widely, reaching more than 1 million people on social media, on billboards throughout the state, and through media both locally and throughout the country. These are just a few of the things we are doing at this time.
We have received lots of questions about what volunteers can do to help. We encourage you to continue to share accurate information on social media and elsewhere, and consider printing and distributing this bulletin to local businesses and other highly-visible areas.
If you have any information, please call 911 or the University of Illinois Police Department at 217-333-1216. Non-emergency information may be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also share information anonymously by contacting Champaign County Crime Stoppers at 373tips.com, calling 217-373-TIPS (8477) or by downloading the P3 Tips mobile app (for iOS or Android).
We continue to ask for help from the public in spreading the word about our search for Ms. Zhang. We have made this public bulletin available for distribution or posting wherever you deem appropriate. The FBI has also published a poster available for download.
Our investigation continues to progress with assistance from the FBI and the Illinois State Police. This is a very complex search, and investigators are working hard to follow-up on a large amount of information. We will continue to post updates as there are developments.
We have received many pieces of information and our detectives continue to work around the clock to develop new information. We continue to work with rideshare companies like Uber and Lyft, cellphone companies, check vehicle records and we have pursued other information offered to us by members of the public. We are very thankful for this information and continue to encourage anyone who may know something about the black Saturn Astra or anyone who may have information about her whereabouts to contact us by phone at 217-333-1216 or email, email@example.com.

t’s impossible to tell for sure if a snake is venomous, or as some people say, poisonous, just by looking at certain features. There are three major myths people seem to believe in:
1) MYTH: It had a triangular head!
FACT: Pretty much all snakes, like 99%, have triangular heads. It’s true that the venomous pit vipers have VERY broad heads, but then again, these are very fat snakes in general.
2) MYTH: It had a pattern!
FACT: A lot of snakes have patterns. And some venomous ones don’t have any pattern. It seems that just because of diamondback snakes or coral snakes, people think that snakes with patterns are dangerous. But most common harmless snakes, like Garter Snakes, Corn Snakes, Milk Snakes, etc. have distinct patterns.
3) MYTH: It rattled its tail!
FACT: This is a common behavior for most snakes. Rattlesnakes just so happen to have rattles that amplify the sound. But when the tail of a safe snake rattles against dry leaves, it sounds just like a rattlesnake!
TOP 3 MOST COMMON TRAITS OF VENOMOUS SNAKES:
1) It is big and fat (all in the USA, except that red-black-yellow coral, are fat pit vipers)
2) It is a rattlesnake, with real rattles on the end of its tail
3) It has elliptical pupils (but I doubt you’re close enough to look)
Some creatures in nature were made to bamboozle us. Birds are notoriously hard to specify gender, so difficult to sex that it usually requires genetic testing to determine. Certain lizards and fish blend in so well with their surrounds that we might step on them without a second thought, and some creatures have patterns on them that make them look like something else. Thankfully, when it comes to snakes, though they all share the same long, lean body, there are definite ways to tell a venomous snake from a non-venomous one.
There are some drawbacks to determining a snake’s killing potential. Pupil size, for example, can often tell you a poisonous snake from a non-poisonous snake; however, discerning this would lead you dangerously close to the creature itself. Most poisonous snakes have a pupil that resembles a cat’s; an oblong shape with peaked ends, like a slit in the center of the eye. Non-venomous snakes usually have round pupils. There is always the exception. The coral snake, a very venomous snake in the United States, has round pupils.
Other body characteristics can help you play detective. Color can be a good indicator of a venomous snake, though again, there are always exceptions to the rule. Most solid colored snakes are not poisonous. The most colorful the snake, the more wary of it you should be. Venomous snakes also have a more triangular head, whereas non-venomous snakes will have a rounded jaw. The shape of the face has to do with the location of the venom sacks, so triangular= beware! If the snake has a rattle, it is venomous. Only rattlesnakes have rattles. Some snake species will flick their tails in a similar fashion, but only the rattlesnake has the mechanism that creates the sound associated with the species. Venomous snakes may have a divot in between their eyes for heat sensing. This physical attribute is most present in vipers and is a good indication of poisonous standing.
Behavior can also indicate poisonous or non-poisonous. Water snakes, for example, come in both varieties, but only poisonous snakes will swim with their entire bodies visible on the water. This is because venomous snakes swim with their lungs inflated, whereas a harmless water snake will swim with its body submerged.
There is one snake that is the exception to many of the above rules. The coral snake is a very poisonous snake but does not have a heat sensor, triangular face, or slit-like pupils. The color of a coral snake, however, is a dead giveaway.
If you encounter a snake that has any one of the above characteristics, stay away from it. It may be harmless, but it may be poisonous. There is no need to take a chance when you can simply skirt around the creature and leave it be. If you are hiking or travelling in an unfamiliar area of the country, take some time an research the native snakes before you head out. Being able to recognize a poisonous animal is the easiest way to avoid it. In fact, most people living in the United States do not know what the major poisonous species are. Almost everyone can name a rattlesnake, but what about the others? Would you know a deadly viper if you saw one? Probably not. Even memorizing tricks about identifying venomous snakes should not be relied on in a moment of doubt. Too many exceptions are out in nature, and it does not make sense to risk your life over a snake. Learn the individual snakes and their characteristics. Being prepared is all it takes to stay safe. You basically have three options for getting rid of your snake(s). First, you can call a professional wildlife expert from my below directory. This person can catch and remove the snake(s) and take other actions necessary to solve the snake problem. Second, you can purchase a snake trap if you wish to catch the snake yourself. Third, you can modify your land and seal up your house to help keep snakes away and out of the house.
Whether you have a large or small garden or yard, you’re bound to see a snake at least once during the summer months. It’s always nice to know what type of snake you might have just come across. However, due to the numerous amounts of snakes living all over the country, it’s difficult to remember what they all look like. I find it’s much easier to know at a glance if I’m dealing with a poisonous or a non-poisonous snake. Here’s a few tips on how to do just that!
Does the tail taper abruptly or gradually?
Poisonous snakes have tails that come to a point rather abruptly, making them appear rather fat. A non-poisonous snake tends to have a longer looking body where the tail tapers gradually into a nice, fine point. Another quick sign to look for is a rattle at the end of the tail. You’ll most likely hear it before you ever see it. This is a warning sign rattlers use to let you know you’re getting too close!
Is the snout pointy or rounded?
Many venomous snakes have an upturned nose, while non-venomous have a rounder snout.
You generally won’t get close enough, or shouldn’t want to get close enough, to a snake to see if the pupils are rounded or slit-like. Rounded pupils are usually found on non-poisonous snakes and slit-like pupils are seen on poisonous snakes.
Is the snake brightly colored or muted?
As with most reptiles and amphibians in nature, bright colors are usually a sure sign of danger. Coral snakes are brightly colored, which should be your first clue to steer clear. This is how you identify a Coral Snake best, since they have rounded pupils, and a long tapering body, just like non-poisonous snakes. Also, many venomous snakes come in an assortment of browns, so don’t think all brownish snakes are approachable.
An exception to this rule is the Scarlet King Snake, who is brightly colored, but harmless. The colors are the same as those on a Coral Snake, but the yellow bands aren’t thin with wide black bands next to them. The Scarlet King Snake has bands of black, yellow, and red that are all about the same width and none of them are straight lines. There is also a rhyme kids often learn to tell the difference between the two snakes by observing their color pattern:
Yellow touching red: You’re dead Red touching black: Safe for Jack
If you live near the water or have a pond on your property, this is a good question to ask yourself when you see a snake swimming nearby. Poisonous snakes will inflate their lungs when going for a swim, allowing them to swim on top of the water. Non-poisonous snakes will have only their head above the water as they swim.
How are snakes useful?
Snakes are great rodent removers, making them excellent friends to have on farms where grain is kept. In many areas, mice and rats carry diseases that make humans very ill. Having snakes around to keep the rat and mouse population down sounds like a huge help to me. Also, some smaller snakes eat insects, worms, and slugs. I don’t know about you, but I’m all for getting rid of the slugs in my garden!
The best thing to do when coming across any type of snake is to remain calm. Even a non-poisonous snake can feel threatened enough to cause it to bite. Younger poisonous snakes are also more likely to release venom when they bite, while an older poisonous snake tends to save venom for when it’s needed most. More snakebites happen when someone tries to move the snake, instead of simply leaving it alone and walking away. When in doubt, leave the snake alone and it will often continue on its way.
