Rockford Scanner Fan Laura Kraman :
“Hello, I was wondering if you could put a message out for me. My company AMS will be doing road work the next 3 days (Wed, Thurs and Friday) on Willowbrook Rd between Elevator and McCurry, then McCurry and Rockton Rd. We wanted to ask drivers to be cautious of the workers. Thank you.”
On Wednesday police were dispatched to Loves Truck Stop in reference to a semi truck that was stolen. The truck driver went inside the business, while inside someone stole his semi. Police were able to track down the semi via GPS that was installed in the semi.
Only one officer was available and was following the semi. The officer wasn’t able to stop the vehicle right away. A semi truck driving down the highway realized what was going on and assisted the officer in stopping the stolen semi. That truck driver took his own semi and moved in front of the stolen semi and block the stolen semi in.
They were able to successfully take the suspect into custody.
A Rockford Scanner fan said she saw police with their guns drawn on the suspect and had him on the ground with his hands on his head when she drove by the scene.
Around 9 am this morning, RS Fans sent us the following:
