BURGLARY ARREST: On Thursday, November 29th, 2018 shortly before 4:00 p.m., Rockford Police Officers from the Rockford Housing Authority Unit responded to an apartment in the 1500 Meadow Court in reference to a suspicious subject.

After a brief foot chase, officers were able to take Turley into custody. Turley was subsequently charged with Aggravated Assault to a Peace Officer and Resisting Police.
