The Rockford Police Department received more than $220,000 from the FBI today. The money stems from investigations into several Rockford area massage parlors.

13 people were arrested and convicted of crimes including money laundering. Investigators seized three million dollars in property and cash.

Police Chief Epperson says the money will go towards new equipment, all officers will now be equipped with tazars.
