God forbid we say the name “Rolling Green” Every-time we do, certain people get mad and contact us complaining about RS saying “Rolling Green”
9 different sources who live in the Rolling Green area were reporting they were burglarized recently. And wanted us to post about the burglaries so others can be informed and can keep a look out for the alleged suspects.
In this video was just one of several burglaries. This happened around 4am. 2 suspects 1 possibly heavy set, dark colored suv possibly a yukon, speakers and amp were stolen
Sources are reporting a suspicious person who was attempting to break into a house in Machesney park a little bit ago. It happened in the neighborhood around Windsor and Elm. A black male came up to his door and was looking in his windows. It looks like he noticed the camera and took off. Below is the RING camera video.
So now this poses a question: WHO is lying?The officer who said “nothing is happening” and is was a “huge misunderstanding” that you can clearly see and hear on my body camera footage, or the local news?
Around 5 am this morning sources told us about a scene that involved numerous officers in Machesney Park.
It happened near Ventura blvd. Just North of Ralston.
I got out of my vehicle to work the scene and just set up my camera when a WCSO officer and a Illinois State Trooper approached me and said to not go any further. I was a ways back and did not plan on going any further.
He then said that “absolutely nothing going on here” and I responded back and pointed and said “that’s nothing” (referring to all the police on scene) and laughed. The officer then responded back and said “it was a huge misunderstanding” and walked away. (body cam footage below)
I saw 3 jurisdictions on scene from my vantage point. Winnebago County Sheriff, Illinois State Police, Loves Park and what appeared to be a white van, possibly a crime scene unit but I wasn’t able to tell because an officer had the view blocked with his squad..
So it is unclear exactly what happened.
But police said it was a “huge misunderstanding”
Keep up the good work sending in your tips to us. SEE IT, SNAP IT, SEND IT
Call log shows it to be a suspicious auto call, with several area police departments responding to assist with a suspicious auto
