Brown Deer Police foil 2 burglaries, take 4 into custody
With the assistance of the River Hills Police Department, the Brown Deer Police were able to foil two residential burglaries, take four suspects into custody and recover items taken in one of the burglaries Friday night. The Police believe the burglaries are separate incidents.
Around 9 PM, a resident returning home discovered that a break in had occurred in their home at N 65th Street and W Floral Lane and immediately called police. The suspected burglary, a 43-year-old Milwaukee man had apparently fled the home on foot and was taken into custody by police nearby. The items taken during the burglary were recovered and either entered into evidence or returned to the owner. The suspect was taken to the Milwaukee County Jail and the District Attorney will be reviewing charges in the next several days.
Three 17-year-old Brown Deer males were arrested for criminal trespass of a vacant house at N 52nd Street and W Wabash Avenue just before 11 PM Friday. According to police, a passerby noticed something amiss in the vacant house and call authorities. The three were arrested at the scene. Nothing was taken from the home. Charges will be referred to the District Attorney’s Office.
