Brookfield, WIS. (CBS 58) -- Brookfield Police are currently searching for a suspect who pretended to be a Verizon customer.

According to police, the suspect entered the Verizon store located at 17550 W. Bluemound Road in the City of Brookfield and claimed to be a man by the name of David Nelson, a Verizon customer.
