Freeport, Illinois — On their way home last evening, one of our local residents caught a large police presence on one of the streets of Freeport. As they passed near Nursery and Galena, they witnessed a relatively large number of police vehicles in the street. They captured this video as they were passing.
One person stated they saw an officer do a U-turn in their vehicle on Galena (N 26) and then chase a car down on the same street shown in the video.
We did reach out to the Freeport Police department who say officers were taking a subject into custody for a retail theft.
No other information was released.
