Weapon may well have just been forgotten by a citizen, carrying for self-defense, who had to unholster while going about his business.
A loaded, holstered revolver found in a bathroom stall at Mayfair Mall showed no immediate evidence of being a crime or contraband weapon, and may well have been inadvertently left behind by a forgetful mall visitor. According to police reports: At 12:40 p.m. Thursday, police were called to Mayfair after a loaded revolver was found in a men’s restroom on the first floor just off center court. A custodian reported to his supervisor at 12:32 that he had just found the holstered weapon wedged between the wall and a handrail above and behind the toilet. He said he had last checked the bathroom 90 minutes before, at 11:02 a.m., and he was sure the gun had not been there. The restroom was quickly blocked off, and police entered and examined the …

A 26-year-old Milwaukee man was arrested Thursday as a fugitive on a felony warrant after his girlfriend, a 27-year-old Elm Grove woman, overdosed on heroin in her car in the parking lot of Mayfair Mall, according to Wauwatosa police reports. Officers and paramedics were called at 8:52 p.m. on a report of an unresponsive woman at the wheel of a car, and they found the woman alone and semi-conscious, pale and “very sweaty.” She could not roll down her window or unlock her door for some time.

Repeat drug felon accompanies friend on mall shoplifting excursion – while holding illicit Oxycodone stash and a sales ledger.
The criminal mind is often devious – but sometimes... eh, not so much.

From humble beginnings, chain has gained a cachet for its overall quality and selection – yet sizing and fitting of its shoes remains a hallmark that has endeared it most of all.
When the developers of the coming Mayfair Collection in the Burleigh Triangle first hinted more than a year and a half ago that a Nordstrom Rack store would be a likely tenant, and more recently confirmed it, there was subdued excitement. "Nice to have the Nordstrom name here, finally," was the prevailing sentiment – "but wish it were a full-line Nordstrom store." After Thursday's announcement that Wauwatosa will, indeed, have its wish, a three-level Nordstrom department store at Mayfair Mall come late 2015, the enthusiasm of shoppers is nigh onto unbridled. "Very cool!" crowed Kim Wolff-Green on Wauwatosa Patch's Facebook page. Caley Clinton: "So. Excited." Beth Jaworski: "This is so fabulous! Woo hoo!" And from Carol Knuth: "Very …
