Email your tips and photo to us at RockfordScanner@Gmail.com


 

 

On 01-25-19 at 12:26 a.m. Janesville Police Officers were notified of a stolen vehicle that was westbound on I-90 approaching the City of Janesville. Within minutes the vehicle was seen by a Janesville Police Officer traveling west on I-90 passing Milton Ave. The officer began following the vehicle waiting for backup before initiating a traffic stop.

Once the officer received backup he initiated a traffic stop, just before the Hwy 51 Stoughton exit.

The vehicle fled onto the off ramp for that exit and lost control. The vehicle got stuck in a snow bank and the subjects were taken into custody without incident.

After further investigation, it was found that the vehicle was stolen by two masked suspects at gun point. The Chicago Police Department is in the process of charging the subjects for their involvement in that incident.

For his involvement, Bishopp Gunn, was charged by JPD with Operating a Motor Vehicle Without Owner’s Consent and Fleeing an Officer. The passenger, Phillip Alexander, was charged by JPD with Being a Passenger in a Stolen Vehicle. Both Gunn and Alexander were held at the Rock County Jail pending an initial court appearance.

Arrested:
Bishopp J. Gunn
Male 19 years old
Waukegan, IL resident

Charges:
Operating a Motor Vehicle Without Owner’s Consent
Fleeing an Officer

Arrested:
Phillip L. Alexander
Male 17 years old
No fixed address

Charge:
Being a Passenger in a Stolen Vehicle

Pursuant to the directive of the Wisconsin Supreme Court, as found in Supreme Court Rule 20:3:6 Trial Publicity, you are advised that a charge is merely an accusation and that a defendant is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty.
