Suspect Takes Car and Hits House

By  | 

Most of us have done it at least once, left the car running while we run a quick errand.

The owner of a Honda is paying the price for that. He had just hopped out of the car when 35-year-old Anthony Moore of Rockford got in and drove away.

A Rockford police officer spotted the stolen car and followed it. As he tried to escape, Moore hit a house on Crosby Street.

He was arrested on the scene and taken to Swedes with minor injuries. No one was in the house when it was hit.
