Good afternoon Beloit. Sometimes you hear a knock at the door and it's good news. Sometimes it is a car on fire.

This morning just before 8am officers from BPD as well as Fire from Beloit and Town of Beloit responded for a vehicle versus house crash in the 1600 block of Mckinley. The car did start on fire, but our FD did a great job and got it out quickly before there was much damage to the house. The driver (a 16 year old male) was cited for Reckless driving as well as for not having a Drivers License. There were no injuries to anyone at the scene.

We thank all of the citizens that stopped to make sure that everyone in the vehicle and the house were safe.

Be safe and be vigilant

Update, 3pm Friday, October 9: The Nissan Rogue was recovered unoccupied in Janesville today. We are still seeking the whereabouts of Anthony Gillespie.

Original: We are seeking the whereabouts of Anthony D. Gillespie who stole a vehicle while the driver was still in it after he had fled from police on another matter (the pursuit had been terminated when the vehicle was stolen).

Gillespie, 34, of Beloit, fled from a police officer at 12:31 p.m. today at Randall and Park avenues. He was spotted in the area and the officer knew he had several felony warrants out for his arrest. Gillespie took off at a high rate of speed and the officer pursued him. However, the pursuit was called off due to safety concerns.

After the pursuit was called off, Gillespie was involved in a vehicle accident at Milwaukee and Cranston roads. He then went to a drive-through restaurant on Milwaukee Road and forced a woman to the passenger seat of a Nissan Rogue SUV crossover. He let the woman exit the vehicle near Menards. There were no injuries involved in either of these incidents.

He was spotted by the Wisconsin State Patrol driving the vehicle, a grey Nissan Rogue with Wisconsin plates AKA6330, on Interstate 90. He was last seen on East Racine Street near Janesville.

If you have information about Gillespie’s whereabouts or spot the Nissan Rogue, please contact us at 608-757-2244.

Gillespie’s warrants are for felon in possession of a firearm, possession of THC with intent to deliver, and maintaining a drug trafficking place. He will also face additional felonies for today’s incidents.
