Officers seeking escaped inmate

SIX MILE — Authorities are asking for the public’s help finding a local inmate who walked off a job site just two weeks before his scheduled release on Monday.

Casey William Gillespie was cutting grass at a recycling center on Love and Care Road in Six Mile when he was last seen, according to a news release from county officials. His supervisor was on the premises and noticed Gillespie was gone, officials said.


Serving a 90-day sentence on DUI, drug paraphernalia and driving under suspension charges, he was scheduled to be released on July 26.

Gillespie has been entered into the National Crime Information Center database as a wanted person, officials said.

Gillespie is around 6 feet tall and around 150 pounds, according to Pickens County Sheriff’s Office records.

Gillespie pleaded guilty to strong-armed robbery charges in 2014, 13th Circuit court records show.

Those with information on Gillespie’s whereabouts are asked to contact the Pickens County Sheriff’s Office at (864) 898-5500 immediately.
