Six youths arrested in overnight thefts

Officer tricks suspects with cell phone

Rockford Police Chief Dave Jones reports that officers from the department arrested six youths ranging in ages from 15 to 18 years old for their part in twenty thefts from parked vehicles in the Rockford Highlands subdivision early Thursday morning, August 6, 2009.

Knowing that the City and surrounding townships had experienced car larcenies over the past several days, Officer Graham alertly observed and approached a young man sitting alone in a car parked on Gibraltar Street at about 4:30 a.m. Thursday. Officer Graham questioned the youth as to why he was out so late and the youth told Officer Graham that he was waiting for friends that were out walking. Suspicious that the other youths were breaking into cars, Officer Graham took a creative approach to the investigation and used the young man’s cell phone to call the friends and set up a meeting place. When five other youths arrived at the meeting place, Officer Graham was there to apprehend them.
