Before officers arrived, they learned the victim and his sister followed the suspect vehicle after the suspect broke into the male victim’s truck. The suspect pulled his vehicle over at 16th Street and 10th Avenue, got out and confronted the male victim.

Rockford Scanner™: A Grinch Strikes A Local Church, Steals Equipment




 

 

 

RS fan Michael: “Our Church trailers were broken into last night and one was actually stolen including all our neighborhood block party outreach equipment. All four trailers on our property were broken into, but unfortunately it was one of the Hey, Neighbor trailers that was taken.

It is most likely that the Hey, Neighbor decal has been stripped off the side of the black trailer, but the remnants or outline of it would probably still be visible. I have attached a picture of it for reference, but if you do see it anywhere, please call us or the non-emergency number for Rockford and make them aware of the whereabouts in the chance that we may actually get it back.

Northeast Christian Church
5651 E Riverside Blvd, Rockford, IL 61114

Thanks,

Rockford Scanner™: Several sources are once again reporting several vehicles being broken into at local parks





 

Several sources are once again reporting several vehicles being broken into at local parks

(Hopefully someone will setup a bait car and catch these criminals)

 

If you recall awhile back ago, we covered the story about this same topic that plagued local parks for several months.

The suspects were never caught. And now they are back to breaking into vehicles again.

We received several reports of numerous vehicles being broken into at the local parks recently again

Parks effected: Rock Cut, Sinnissippi, Shorewood, Sportscore, Keiselberg, Atwood, etc…

At one time Rock Cut State Park had a sign posted about locking your doors because of the burglaries.

But once we posted  the story, they removed the sign.

How to prevent your vehicle from being broken into: 

  • LOCK your doors!
  • Do NOT put anything of value in sight.
  • Before going to the park, leave any valuables at home.
  • If you have to bring a purse or any valuables, put it in the trunk BEFORE you go to the park.
  • Invest into a hidden camera and stick it in your vehicle. More info at Superior Spy – CLICK HERE
