Suspect Wanted For Looting Arrested in Lake County

KENOSHA, WI (WLIP)–One of the five suspects wanted in connection with looting during last summer’s riots has been taken into custody.

Lake County Sheriff’s records indicate that 26 year old Mishawn Billups of Round Lake Beach, who is suspected of allegedly looting a jewelry store on the second night of the riots following the police involved shooting of Jacob Blake, was arrested last week.

Billups is being held on a half million dollar bond and is due in court this morning. Four others-29 year old Dale Wells, 22 year old Kevin Bryant, and 31 year old Sara Weeks all of Waukegan as well as 28 year old Nakita Billips of Round Lake Beach-are still wanted in connection with the incident.

The suspects were apparently identified by video surveillance and a witness who spotted their car at the scene. Investigators are said to be working over 1-hundred different cases in connection with the riots.
