High-Speed Chase Ends in Arrest


A high-speed chase from Cedarville in Stephenson County came to an end on Rockford's West Side early Monday morning.

Winnebago County Sheriff's Police say two men were spotted taking thousands of dollars worth of cigarettes from a gas station in Cedarville.

The driver lost control of his car at 624 Atwood, but not before plowing through a fence, bouncing off a house and slamming into a second fence. After a brief foot chase the two were arrested by Winnebago County Sheriffs Police.

Police have two men in custody. Thirty-two year-old Terrence McNeil of Chicago is charged with burglary theft, criminal damage to property and fleeing to allude authorities. The passenger, 40-year-old Dwight Young, also of Chicago, is charged with burglary theft and criminal damage to property.
