Good afternoon. BPD was asked to assist in looking for a wanted subject who fled on foot from another agency in the area of the 1100 block of Dewey av around 1230 pm. This search was not related to any other investigations at this time.
We notified School Security as it is in close proximity to the Beloit Learning Academy. The School District did ask only Todd Elementary to go to a “hard lock down” while our search continued. The search was called off after a search of the area. We had no information that the suspect got anywhere close to the school, but because he was heading in that general direction, the lockdown was given.
We thank you for your patience, and the continued support of the community and we hope that all of our parents of students in the district understand why your students moved to hard lock down for approximately 20 mins. Thank you.
