Another Daytime Home Burglary; 3 Offices Broken Into

East Tosa residence and three suites in a Mayfair office building are latest targets of break-ins.

A recent rash of daytime home break-ins continued with another in East Tosa, and three businesses in an office building were hit in an overnight burglary.

According to Wauwatosa police reports:

A resident of the 2400 block of North 66th Street reported Jan. 14 that between 7:30 a.m. and 8:30 p.m. someone broke in to the home and stole two television sets and an Apple laptop computer.

The homeowner told police she had gone to work, then to the gym, came home and entered through the back door, took a shower, and then went to her living room to watch TV, only to find the set missing and the front door standing open.

A second TV – both were 43-inch plasma sets – and the laptop were missing from an upstairs room. Police determined that someone had broken in through a second back door after climbing over a fence to reach an enclosed porch.

None of the woman's neighbors who had been home at any time of the day could recall seeing or hearing anything suspicious.

Office suites rifled, petty cash stolen

Three businesses suites in the office building at 2525 North Mayfair Road were found Thursday morning to have been broken into overnight, including Express Drug Screening.

The co-owner of that business arrived to find furniture knocked over and drawers and cabinets pried open, with small amounts of cash missing.

The door to that and two more businesses, unnamed in the report, had been pried open, as had an exterior door to the building.

Another ignorant comment. Wauwatosa comes up as Milwaukee according to the USPS. It's part of Milwaukee County so guess what? You live in Milwaukee so get over it! Maybe get a job where you can afford to move to Oconomowoc or Pewaukee or Mequon. THEN you can make that dumb statement. By the way, where there's sin there's crime. So unless you and all your neighbors are sinless, there will always be potential for crime.
