2 arrested in Kingston campground thefts

DeKALB – Two people accused of stealing camping equipment from a campground near Kingston on Feb. 19 have been arrested, according to a DeKalb County Sheriff’s Office news release.

Robert P. Taylor, 41, of the 500 block of West State Street, Rockford, was charged with burglary, a Class 2 felony punishable by 3 to 7 years in prison. He is being held at the Winnebago County Jail. 

Lindsay M. Whittington, 30, of the 1400 block of Blue Ridge Avenue, Rockford, was charged with five counts of theft, a misdemeanor punishable up to a year in jail. She is also being held at the Winnebago County Jail.

Several people contacted the police about stolen fishing and camping equipment in April, according to the sheriff’s office. They reported the equipment was taken from five campers while the Shangri-La campground at 8785 Carson Road, northwest of Kingston, was closed for the winter. 

Detectives found the stolen equipment and the suspects in the central Illinois, according to sheriff’s office. The offenders were fleeing after committing crimes in another jurisdiction and stopped on the campground along the way, police said.
