Black leather camera bag lost/stolen at Sinnissippi. Cash reward if turned in with everything. Very very important to me.
I biked to sinnissippi on Sunday around 5PM. I remember stoping at the area on the image to rest, after passing most of the gardens to my right. I kept going up the rock river past the symbol and stopped at the new island. I was working on a land piece, and as soon as I go to take a pictures, MY CAMERA BAG IS GONE. With my camera, car keys, and some other personal stuff in it.

I am offering a cash reward if anyone turn it in, it’s of very sentimental value and would hate to lose it. I am a young artist who’s worked hard to even purchase it and it should go back to its rightful owner. Any information will help. Thank you.

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
