Good afternoon Beloit. It is time once again to play “Who’s that Guy?!” Today’s featured contestants stole a large sum of items from Beloit Walmart on June 20th at about 5pm. We have reason to believe that they have visited several other stores in the area, so please share this around the Stateline as they may not be locals.

If you know the identity of these men please call 757-2244 and ask for Officer Mark Driscoll case number BE1823908 (today until 5pm) or contact us on our page, or through P3 tips. Suspects posted yesterday were ID’d in less than a couple of hours, so let’s see if we can beat that time! We really appreciate the help. You guys are getting really good at this, and our success rate is really high.

Thanks again for the help!
