Rockford Scanner™: Shout Out To The LPPD Officers & Christopher Lobdell

Email your tips and photo to us at

Rockford Scanner wants to send a shout out to these officers and the citizen.

From the LPPD:

A police officer never knows what their next call will be. It could be a call that puts them in harm’s way, or it could be something a little more heartwarming…

We would like to give a shout out to two of our officers and to an area resident, Christopher Lobdell. While conducting school zone patrols in front of Maple School, Officer’s Eric Jacobson and Jordan Hayes noticed that sidewalks were not shoveled from the previous snow storm and school children were walking in the street to get to the cross walk.

The officers gathered up some shovels and started to clear the sidewalk around the cross walk so the school kids would not have to walk in the street to get to the crosswalk. That’s when a resident, Christopher Lobdell, drove by and saw the officers shoveling the snow. Christopher drove home, got his snow blower and returned to the school zone. After the trio finished the job, the officers decided they were going to run down to Windsor School to clear the snow around the crosswalk there.

And after loading the snow blower back into his vehicle, Christopher followed the officers to Windsor School, where he helped clear the snow from the sidewalk and the entrance to the crosswalk, so the kids would have safer access to the crosswalk.

To this trio, we thank you for caring about your Community.

And by the way, when we learned about their morning activity, we had to coax the officers into posing for the photo.

lppd, loves park, police, officer loves park police

Rockford Scanner™: Serious Accident in Loves Park, Avoid The Area





Winnebago County Coroner office has confirmed the victim as 58-year-old Mary Wymore of Machesney Park

Several sources reporting a bad accident in Loves Park. 

Sources reporting a bad accident in the area of Perryville and Mulford. 

Injuries were reported. Sources reporting they might be life threatening injuries.

Possibly fatal. Not yet confirmed.  

Several vehicles are reported to be in the accident.

Up to 5 vehicles are reported to be involved in this accident. 

Please avoid the area or expect traffic delays. 

UPDATE: Police are working the scene and were not available to provide any information. 

What I can confirm from what I saw on scene, numerous police officers on scene, NPFD, County Highway, Rock Valley PD, WCSO, Crime Scene unit, etc…

One vehicle has a tarp on it. Safe to assume that is the vehicle that has the fatality in it.  Witnesses said the White SUV/Truck ran the red light and T-Boned the other vehicle. 

Their were reports of up to 5 vehicles involved, but I only saw only 2 vehicles when I was a t the scene.

The driver of the truck got out and tried to flee the scene on foot but a bystander tackled the man. He told the other male in the truck to run. That is believed to be a boy around 12 years old, possibly the drivers son.

I can confirm police are searching the area for someone. So it is safe to assume it is the 12 year old boy, the father told to run from the scene.   Witnesses said that driver smelled of alcohol. 

Reports of the victim that passed away is possibly female.

We will post updates if the police release an official statement. In the meantime, avoid the area.
