CPD 11-23-21

Monday, November 22, at approximately 10:00 a.m. Cheyenne Police Officers were dispatched to Converse Avenue and East 10th Street to investigate a possible stolen vehicle.

Responding officers conducted surveillance in the area and observed the suspect vehicle, a silver Toyota Echo, emerge from an alley. Officers confirmed that the Toyota was stolen from a location in Laramie County on Sunday, November 21.

As officers attempted to make a traffic stop, the driver of the Toyota fled at a high rate of speed, initiating a pursuit. The driver, later identified as Anthony Gello, 35, of Cheyenne, proceeded to drive recklessly and at times, into oncoming traffic. Gello then crashed the Toyota near the 1200 block of East 7th Street, striking two parked vehicles, and fled from officers on foot. No injuries were reported.

Gello was located and taken into police custody. He was booked into the Laramie County Jail on felony charges of eluding, stolen motor vehicle, reckless driving, and driving under suspension.
