Rock Falls man held on obstructing justice charge

Two wanted in April hit-and-run

STERLING – Sterling police arrested a Rock Falls man today in connection with a vehicle hit-and-run that seriously injured a Sterling pedestrian in April.

Dylan Goodell, 21, was arrested at his Rock Falls home at 10:10 a.m. on a Whiteside County warrant for obstructing justice, according to a news release from the Sterling Police Department.

His bond was set at $20,000. He was taken to Whiteside County Jail in Morrison, according to the release, where he was unable to post the $2,000 required to be released.

On Wednesday, police said they were looking for Jorden E. Johnson, 22, and Dayton J. Hicks, 19, who were charged with attempted murder with a vehicle in connection with the hit-and-run.

Jacob Carr, 20, was found injured and unresponsive in the 300 block of West Fifth Street about 12:30 a.m. April 2. He might have been lying there for an hour, police said.

Carr was taken to OSF Saint Anthony Medical Center in Rockford, where he at first was listed in critical condition. His recovery has been a very slow process, Sterling Police Detective J.D. Sanders said Wednesday

Kristin L. Alumbaugh, 21, of Sterling, surrendered to Sterling police Wednesday afternoon. She was wanted for obstruction of justice in the incident.
