Police Pursuit Ends in Arrest of Suspect


One person is in custody after fleeing from police during a traffic stop.

A Winnebago County Sheriff’s Sergeant says deputies attempted to pull the suspect over near 15th Ave. and 7th St. for speeding. That’s when he took off, leading deputies down 7th St., and eventually crashing at 6th St. and 23rd Ave. The suspect got out of the car and fled on foot, but was caught near 6th and 22nd.

Deputies discovered the man had a bag in his car that had been stolen from Kishwaukee Tap earlier Thursday. No word yet on what charges the suspect may face.
