Galesburg man facing charges after pointing replica gun at neighbors

A Galesburg man is wanted for Disorderly Conduct after causing a disturbance by pointing a replica gun at people. Galesburg Police on Wednesday, May 4th responded to a home in the 200 block of West North Street for reports of a male subject standing in a driveway pointing a gun at people while wearing full body armor. Callers told police the subject went into a detached garage. Officers arrived and made contact with the homeowner who said he was not aware of the incident, but the male subject was most likely his step-grandson who lives at the home with his girlfriend. Officers searched the garage and home, but the male subject 27-year-old Steven Wallace was not present. Police then discovered firearms in a bedroom used by Wallace. Wallace’s step-grandfather told police Steven is a convicted felon and he had no knowledge of the guns and wished for officers to confiscate them. A silver revolver replica was also found on the property which is believed to be the firearm dispatch received reports on. Wallace had been given a ride to Walmart and refused to return home. Wallace was added to the police department’s pending arrest list and is facing charges of Disorderly Conduct and a Knox County warrant for violation of probation.
