A citizen contacted us and said he was robbed while replying to a Facebook Buy & Sell Page in Rockford. The name was similar to Rockford market buy sell page.
He messaged us saying: ” This individual reached out to me on a Rockford group for buying and selling used goods. She contacted me by messenger app, looked at the item near my home, then left to get money. Asked if I could meet elsewhere and we agreed on McDonald’s off Riverside and North Main. I got out of my car and went to the back trunk when She grabbed the item and jumped into her car and hit the gas with the door open. I attempted to hold the door open but She drove reckless and I moved out of the way to avoid being hit.”
He also said: ” Police report was filed Saturday at 10:55. The theft occurred at 10:35 am. The car was a maroon Monte Carlo with damage to the front driver side number ”
