Showplace 16 Robbery

It was just like in the movies, but it wasn't on the big screen. It was real life.

Showplace 16 in Rockford was robbed just before 5 p.m. Friday night. Rockford police say a white male came in and implied that he had a weapon, but nothing was displayed.

The male is described as being 5’10” with light colored hair, roughly 18 to 20 years old, and had a blue hat with and a "blue and white" stripped pull-over, tan shorts and white shoes.
