Rockford Scanner™: Three Females Going On A Crime Spree In Rockford?




 

Over the last few weeks we have gotten several reports from several area businesses that 3 females have been going into local stores and destroying items and stealing items. Then they flee the stores. 

Sources have told us the police have been notified on several of these incidents and they did not seem to care to investigate the crimes, according to the victims. 

Tuesday it happened again at Ulta, around 4:40 pm. Three females went into the business with garbage bags and began to fill the bags with items. And then they fled the store. Witnesses were able to get a photo of the alleged vehicle and plate.

Police are encrypted and have not released any information on any of these incidents. The most we got out of police was “No Comment”  so they will not confirm the incidents, and they won’t confirm if it is the same 3 females on a crime spree, etc…

Thankfully to the citizens of the area, we are able to post this and keep people informed via your tips, so maybe these alleged criminals can be caught.
