We are seeking the publicโ€™s help in identifying four subjects who placed a large rock in the roadway in the area of Hiawatha Drive & Pocahontas Trail in the early morning hours (shortly after midnight) on Sunday, September 16th. We were responding to a critical medical emergency and one of our squad cars struck the boulder. The situation could have been much worse and we are thankful that the responding officer was not hurt. We realize that the activity in the video is shown at a distance and is therefore hard to see, but we hope that anyone with information will come forward. Anyone with information is asked to please contact the Lake in the Hills Police Department through one of the following methods: (1) call our non-emergency line at (847) 658-5676, (2) text TIP LITHPD to 888777, or (3) submit an anonymous tip online at: PLEASE SHARE.
