Police Report: Update on Crime in Wauwatosa

Brookfield man took it all in at Summerfest, let it all out in Tosa parking lot.


At 1:04 a.m., a 22-year-old Brookfield man was arrested for disorderly conduct after a police officer saw him urinating on a fence in the parking lot of , 510 N. Mayfair Rd. As the officer approached, the man started to get into the back seat of a running, occupied vehicle parked nearby. The officer stopped the car and questioned the man about what he was doing and whom he was with. He claimed he had been walking alone in the area and had no idea who was in the car, but the driver said he was her friend and that they had been to Summerfest. The man was given a breath test and blew a .15 blood alcohol content, but because he was of age and not driving, he was not cited for intoxication.


At 7:30 p.m., police were called to the grounds, 9400 W. Congress St., on a report of a window broken by vandals at the Greek Church Cultural Center. A 3-foot by 9-foot outer pane, estimated at $1,000 value, had been broken. The inner pane was intact. A group of juveniles had been seen in the area when the damage occurred, but no one saw them do it and they could not be found.

At 5:10 p.m., a clerk at , 10111 W. Capitol Dr., reported that a man had tried to sell a set of golf clubs that had been stolen from a Brookfield man’s car earlier that day in Milwaukee. The clerk tried to buy the clubs so they could be returned to the owner, but because stores are not reimbursed for stolen property, he could not make a good enough offer to satisfy the man, who left with the clubs. The owner had stopped by the store in the morning and given a description of the clubs. The clerk got the license number of the suspect’s car, which turned out to be registered to a Milwaukee woman. At the time of the report, police had been unable to find either the car or its driver.

A Milwaukee man reported that some time Thursday evening someone had cut the lock on his locker and stolen his wallet while he was at , 2885 N. Mayfair Rd. The owner said he suspected a man who had been changing in the locker room when he arrived to change and work out. Surveillance video showed the man he described entering the business without signing in and leaving shortly after changing clothes without having done any workout.

At 10:30 a.m., the owner of , 6823 W. North Ave., reported that overnight someone had damaged two letters of his movie marquis by climbing up and trying to rearrange them into an obscene message. The movie was “Captain America.” The rearranged letters formed a piece of juvenile, scatological nonsense that is not worth repeating.

At 11:15 a.m., an employee of Advance Auto Parts, 12132 W. Capitol Dr., reported that a man had asked for parts for a 1999 Chevy Malibu worth $200 and then run out of the store without paying for them. He was accompanied by another man and both fled to a waiting Chevy of that make and model year.

At 6:30 a.m., a resident of the 1500 block of North 116th Street reported that some time overnight someone had stolen his wheelbarrow out of his front yard.

Four vehicle entries were reported and investigated in the area of the 7400 block of West Center Street. Full reports were not available for all the incidents, but in one a woman’s purse and contents were stolen from her unlocked vehicle.


At 4:49 p.m., a Milwaukee woman reported that some time between 4:45 and 6:20 p.m. Thursday, someone had stolen $170 cash out of her wallet while it was locked in a locker at the , 2420 N. 124th St. The locker had not appeared to have been forced open.

At 12:20 p.m., a 26-year-old Milwaukee woman was arrested for theft after she tried to leave , 3201 N. Mayfair Rd., without paying for four children’s Nintendo video games, worth $77.96 together, that she had hidden in her purse.


A 54-year-old Milwaukee woman was finally apprehended and arrested for theft by fraud after she made a fraudulent return to , 12000 W. Burleigh St., for the seventh time in the past year with a total value of $2,017.61.
