Rock Falls Police Seek Help with Nails Being Left in Various Driveways

Rock Falls Police Department would like the help of the citizens of Rock Falls, in identifying the young kids that are putting NAILS in random driveways all over town. This has went on all summer and primarily most times the NAILS are deposited sometime late Sunday night to early Monday mornings. Several residents have put up cameras and we can say for sure they appear to be young kids (11-16 year range) and at least one of the subjects is on a scooter.   PARENTS: If you are missing large amounts of NAILS recently, or your children have access to large amounts of nails please check on your children during the late hours to make sure they are home. We would assume that with the young age of these kids and the very late hour they are out roaming around, that their parents are not aware they have left the house.

Any information please call the Rock Falls Police Department at (815)622-1140.

Dixon Man Charged with Arson

On Saturday, September 23rd, at approximately 5:31 a.m., the Dixon Police Department was dispatched to the Custer Avenue boat docks for a report of a vehicle on fire.

 

Officers arrived and located a Chevrolet Monte Carlo up against the concrete wall of the boat ramp leading down to the river.  The Chevrolet was fully engulfed in flames.  Responding officers utilized their patrol car fire extinguishers in attempts to see if there were any occupants inside of the vehicle.  Officers were able to reduce the fire enough to gain access to the vehicle and determined it was unoccupied.  Dixon City Fire arrived and finished extinguishing the fire.  Officers observed that the gas cap to the vehicle was open and there was a rag sticking out of it.  Officers then began an investigation into the suspicious fire.

 

During the course of their investigation, officers were able to identify the suspect responsible for setting the vehicle on fire as Andrew L. Ford, age 23, of Dixon.  Ford admitted to taking the vehicle from its owner without permission.  Ford stated he was involved in a minor accident while driving the vehicle and set fire to it to try and conceal any evidence that he had taken the vehicle.  Ford was subsequently charged with the following:

 

  • Unlawful Possession of a Stolen Vehicle (Class 2 Felony)
  • Arson (Class 2 Felony)
  • Criminal Damage to Property (Class 4 Felony)

 

Ford was processed and taken to the Lee County Jail.  This incident remains under investigation.

 

Citizens are reminded to call the Dixon Police Department at (815)288-4411 or CrimeStoppers at 1-888-Caught-U. (1-888-228-4488)  Callers can remain anonymous and receive rewards of up to $1,000.00 if their information leads to an arrest. 

 

All charges are merely an allegation and the defendant is presumed innocent until proven guilty.

The Dixon Police Department was dispatched to the area of West 4th Street and Grant Avenue this morning at 3:38 a.m. for a report of a single vehicle accident. Officers arrived on scene and located a vehicle sitting on its side. Based on the position of the vehicle and its damage, officers quickly concluded that the vehicle hadn’t been involved in an accident but rather appeared to have been flipped over by unknown individual(s).

 

Officers spoke with the caller, who was a neighbor to the victim. The caller stated she heard a loud crash and came outside.  The caller stated she saw a full size pickup truck leaving the area and heard subjects laughing.  Officers began checking the area for a pickup truck.

 

Officers located a pickup truck near Eells Avenue and Cummins Street. Officers were able to conduct a traffic stop on the truck due to a stop sign violation.  Officers made contact with the occupants and during the course of the traffic stop, it was determined they were the individuals responsible for flipping the vehicle on its side.  Five occupants in the vehicle were subsequently arrested and charged with the following:

ISP ENCOURAGES SAFE DRIVING HABITS FOR LABOR DAY WEEKEND

 

The Labor Day weekend signifies the end of the summer and the last chance for people to get out and enjoy the warm weather.  The holiday weekend is one the busiest driving periods and millions of motorists are expected to hit the roadways nationwide.  Illinois State Police (ISP) District 1 Commander, Mark Karczewski, is reminding motorists to make safety their number one priority while driving during the Labor Day holiday weekend.      Troopers will focus their attention on the primary factors that contribute to fatal traffic crashes.  Driving under the influence (DUI), speeding, distracted driving, and not wearing seat belts, the Fatal Four, are the four primary causes of fatal traffic crashes.  Troopers will patrol Illinois roadways watching for and assisting stranded motorists, and enforcing Fatal Four violations.  There will be additional emphasis on DUI offenses over the holiday weekend.  The “Driver Sober or Get Pulled Over” campaign began on August 21st  and runs through September 4th .  The ISP will have additional troopers out on the roadways and at roadside safety checks watching for impaired drivers.    Troopers will also be watching for those who fail to slow down and move over.  Illinois law requires motorists to reduce speed, change lanes if possible, and proceed with due caution when approaching a vehicle on the side of the road displaying rotating or flashing lights.   Motorists can expect increased traffic volumes and should plan to allow extra time when traveling to their destinations.  Voluntary compliance to traffic laws will assist in making Labor Day travels a safe and enjoyable experience for everyone.
