A man was arrested Friday in connection to an armed robbery Monday at a Beloit gas station, according to a release.

Beloit police responded to a report of an armed robbery incident at the Citgo Gas Station at 1888 Shopiere Road in Beloit Monday around 11:12 p.m., according to the release.

Video surveillance from the robbery led to the identification and arrest of Anthony Hill, 48, of Beloit, Friday on charges of armed robbery and on additional charges for a warrant, according to the release.

Officials said an investigation led officials to the PCL Linear at 6402 Rockton Road in South Beloit, Ill., where Hill was taken into custody without incident and was transported to Winnebago County Jail pending extradition back to Wisconsin.

Officials said Hill is a suspect in three gas station burglaries in Beloit. The investigations into each incident remain ongoing.
