Rockford Scanner™: Many Jurisdictions Working A Scene in Machesney Park, Police Told Me “Huge Misunderstanding”




Update: You can clearly see the officer saying “nothing is happening” and it was a “huge misunderstanding” on my body camera footage.  Wrex just said this was some burglary suspects that were caught.

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
