Police suspect Wauwatosa woman of stealing identities to support drug habit

March 29, 2013 3:14 p.m. | Police believe a 44-year-old Wauwatosa woman caught in the act of stealing mail has taken identities of others to support a drug habit, according to a search warrant.

The woman was arrested about 12:24 a.m. Sunday when an officer caught her reaching into a mailbox. When she saw officers, the woman dropped the mail and tried to walk away.

Officers said the woman had a Wisconsin ID card for a dead man in her possession, along prescription pain killers and oxycodone.

"It is common for narcotics users that steal identities to support their habits by continuing to steal more identities to maintain their habit and they commonly keep identities to later re-use," a Wauwatosa detective wrote in an affidavit for a search warrant.

Detectives searched the woman's home Tuesday and found two handguns, a U.S. Postal key, mail addressed to several different people, collector coins, financial documents, and Wisconsin photo ID cards for various citizens, among other items, the warrant return stated.

Wisconsin official given voice on Sebena memorial decision

March 29, 2013 11:46 a.m. | An outspoken supporter of adding Wauwatosa Police Officer Jennifer Sebena to a national memorial wall has a seat at the table for next week's decision.

The National Association of Police Organizations Inc. is a member of the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund and has designated Jim Palmer to represent the organization at a Wednesday meeting to determine whether Sebena will be added to the fund's memorial wall in Washington.

Palmer is an NAPO regional vice president and executive director of the Wisconsin Professional Police Association, which has strongly advocated for the fund to include Sebena on its memorial wall.

The fund initially said it would not include Sebena, apparently because she was killed by an act of domestic violence. The fund then announced it would delay the decision until next year, before changing course and scheduling a special meeting for Wednesday.

Sebena's husband, Benjamin Sebena, is accused of shooting her to death Christmas Eve while she was on patrol.

1 man charged, 2 others arrested in Wauwatosa Walmart robbery

March 27, 2013 4:48 p.m. | A 20-year-old Milwaukee man was charged Wednesday with helping rob a Walmart in Wauwatosa by forcing the store manager to empty the safe.

Police have arrested three men. One of them, Michael Robertson, was charged Wednesday with one count of armed robbery in the March 22 robbery at Walmart, 3850 N. 124th St., Wauwatosa.

The store manager told police two masked men carrying a handgun and rifle grabbed her while she was working in the store and forced her to take them to the cash office shortly before 3 a.m. They told her to turn off an alarm and unlock the safe. One of the robbers grabbed an empty box and cash bags and after filling them with money they ran out of the store, according to the complaint.

Robertson and the other man fled in a white Buick with a third robber following them in another vehicle, the complaint says. They later switched vehicles with the third man.

Robertson said he and another man discussed committing a robbery when a third man suggested they rob Walmart. Robertson told police he didn't want to commit the robbery but one of the others, a former Walmart employee, pointed a gun and threatened him if he didn't rob Walmart, the complaint says.

Man caught driving stolen van after fight with ex, Wauwatosa police say

March 26, 2013 3:16 p.m. | Wauwatosa police arrested a 23-year-old Milwaukee man for driving a stolen car after a fight with his ex-girlfriend left the vehicle blocking traffic at the intersection of West Burleigh and North Mayfair roads.

According to the Wauwatosa police report:

The fight started after the man picked up a 21-year-old West Allis woman while giving his ex a ride to work. The ride was smooth until the man and newly picked up woman started planning "pit stops."

The talk about pit stops prompted the ex to start hurling insults at the driver. The driver escalated the fight by punching the woman in the head. The woman started swinging at him, trying to take his keys.

Police responding found the man walking down the road and the two women in the van, which was now blocking traffic.

Youths arrested after allegedly fleeing Wauwatosa police officers in stolen car

March 26, 2013 3:08 p.m. | Three Milwaukee boys were arrested after trying to flee police in a stolen 1998 Honda Accord at 10:26 p.m. March 17.

According to the Wauwatosa police report:

The boys, ages 16, 16 and 15, were seen driving Southbound on Glenview Avenue with their high beams on. The officer followed them and, after a registration check revealed the car was stolen, tried pulling them over.

The youths gunned it, hitting speeds of 90 to 100 MPH. Officers chased them into the Lower Harwood Municipal parking lot, 7735 Harwood Ave., where the boys jumped out and tried running across a pedestrian bridge.

Responding officers were able to chase down and apprehend them.

Police say they followed radiator fluid to drunken driver

March 26, 2013 3:02 p.m. | It wasn't hard for Wauwatosa police to find an alleged drunken driver who had slammed her vehicle into a tree in the 2600 block of North 62nd Street. They simply followed a trail of radiator fluid leading to her smoking car.

According to the Wauwatosa police report:

The 30-year-old Milwaukee woman was found in her car in a nearby parking lot at 5:24 p.m. March 17. When asked why she drove away, she said she was scared.

She also said she was arguing with a friend on the phone and angry right before the crash. Officers noticed that she was slurring her speech and smelled like alcohol.

When they asked her how much she had to drink, she said she had one Jell-O shot. When she failed her sobriety tests and blew a blood alcohol content of 0.18, she changed that number to four beers and one Jell-O shot.

Two northbound Highway 100 lanes reopen to traffic

March 25, 2013 4:10 p.m. | Two northbound lanes of Highway 100 between Blue Mound Road and Watertown Plank Road were expected to be open by 4 p.m. Monday, but motorists still should be prepared for delays, according to the state Department of Transportation.

All northbound Highway 100 lanes were closed just before noon Monday because of a gas line break.

Research Drive will remain closed for a few more hours to enable crews to make repairs. Law enforcement will help traffic exit the Research Park using Innovation Drivel, DOT reported.

We Energies confirmed a gas line was hit at Highway 100 and Research Drive and crews are working to repair the line, said Cathy Schulze, We Energies spokeswoman.

"We were able to squeeze off the gas there," Schulze said at about 3 p.m. Monday. "We are going to have about 30 customers without service while we make permanent repairs. . . . They'll be working on it over the next couple of hours," she said.

Board to meet again to discuss placing Wauwatosa officer's name on memorial

March 25, 2013 1:00 p.m. | The National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund will meet April 3 to once again consider adding slain Wauwatosa police officer Jennifer Sebena to its memorial wall, according to the Wisconsin Professional Police Association.

The memorial fund first said it would not include Sebena, apparently because she was killed in a domestic violence incident. Last week, it announced it would delay the decision until next year.

Sebena's husband, Benjamin Sebena, is accused of shooting her to death Christmas Eve while she was on duty outside a fire station. The memorial fund's main requirement for the memorial wall is that an officer must have been "killed in the line of duty," meaning "a law enforcement officer has died as a direct and proximate result of a personal injury sustained in the line of duty." The fund's board of directors makes the final decision, and the fund is a private, nonprofit organization.

"This is the only issue on the agenda. We think this is a tremendous development and reflects the fact that people from around the country have heard about this and are actively expressing their outrage at the national memorial's decision to (not) give Officer Jen Sebena the same honor as many others that were killed under almost identical circumstances," WPPA executive director Jim Palmer wrote in an email Monday to the Journal Sentinel.

"We will continue to encourage supporters to reach out to the memorial board and we are optimistic they will make the right decision and honor Jen this year," he added.

Memorial wall includes officers killed in circumstances similar to Jennifer Sebena

March 22, 2013 9:34 p.m. | The national memorial that is delaying a decision to add a Wauwatosa police officer's name to its walls until next year has honored officers in the past who were killed under almost identical circumstances.

Wisconsin Professional Police Association cited the example of Louisville, Ky., officer Gwen Downs, who was killed in 1977, on Friday as it renewed calls for Wauwatosa officer Jennifer Sebena's name to be added to the memorial wall this year.

Downs and her partner responded to a call at a parking lot and her estranged husband approached her, started an argument and shot the officer twice before turning the gun on himself and committing suicide, according to the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund.

The memorial fund, headed by president and CEO Craig Floyd, decided Thursday that it would wait until 2014 to make a final decision on whether to add Sebena to its walls that honor officers killed in the line of duty.

"Given what we now know, the memorial board still has time to do the right thing and honor her this year. Frankly, if this isn't enough, then I honestly don't know what will be," Wisconsin Professional Police Association Executive Director Jim Palmer said Friday.

Wauwatosa transmission line route finalized

March 20, 2013 4:31 p.m. | Wisconsin state energy regulators have finalized their action on a pair of Milwaukee County transmission lines that will cost $33.5 million.

The state Public Service Commission decided to permit a small stretch of the American Transmission Co. line to be built underground along and north of Watertown Plank Road, east of U.S. 45.

The commission earlier this month rejected calls to bury most of the two 138,000-volt lines that came from a diverse group that included We Energies, one of the parent companies of American Transmission, as well as municipal leaders in Wauwatosa and Milwaukee, St. Therese Church and Milwaukee Montessori School.

Though they had argued that burying the line made sense in such a congested urban area, the PSC decided that underground lines should be reserved for cases in which an above-ground line can’t be built for engineering reasons.

Selecting another route would shift millions of dollars of extra costs for underground lines to ratepayers in the ATC footprint far removed from the Milwaukee area, who would not benefit from a more aesthetically pleasing project area," the commission's decision says.

March 18, 2013 4:51 p.m. | Officers thought something was amiss when the 23-year-old Brookfield man they pulled over was slurring his speech, had bloodshot eyes and didn't know that he was driving on three wheels.

According to the Wauwatosa police report:

He was spotted driving 10-15 mph at the intersection of West Center Street and Menomonee River Parkway at 1:10 a.m. March 7.

He admitted to having two beers shortly before failing all sobriety tests and blowing a 0.28 on his .BAC test.

After officers brought him to the station and interviewed him, his story didn't change. He said he only had two beers in Milwaukee and told officers the route he took. He still didn't know what happened to his tire.

Police say men talk $150 out of cashier

March 18, 2013 4:50 p.m. | Two men used glib tongues and quick wit instead of quick fingers and stealth to get $150 from a cashier at Sentry, 6700 W. State St.

According to the Wauwatosa police report:

The men were purchasing a greeting card and asked for $50 in change at 6:57 p.m. March 16. They gave the cashier $48, and when he found this out, he gave the money back to them to recount.

Zoo's jaguar cubs get names from avid fans

March 13, 2013 12:20 p.m. | You can now call the Milwaukee County Zoo's two jaguar cubs B'alam and Zean. The cubs' new names were ceremoniously revealed in a special event today at the zoo.

B'alam, which is Mayan for jaguar and means "great and powerful king," was named by Maureen Zwirbel, a Virginia woman who participated in a naming contest that had more than 1,300 entries. Zwirbel enjoyed watching the cubs on the zoo's cub webcam, which had been monitoring the young jaguars. She has also sent items for the young cats to play with from a wish list created by the zoo.

The name Zean, derived from the last four letters of Belizean (referring to residents of the Central American country Belize), was chosen by Belize students who co-authored a book titled "Pat the Great Cat, a Jaguar's Journey." The fictional story encompasses the cubs' real father.

The children co-wrote the book with Milwaukee area students as part of Student Historical Art Resource Program.

Police say teens threaten Mayfair security, run from police

March 05, 2013 8:43 a.m. | Four Milwaukee boys were causing a scene at Mayfair mall, 2500 N. Mayfair Road, being loud, rude and threatening to beat up security guards. They turned tail and ran, however, when security called police.

Despite lackluster offense, Blue Dukes march on

March 01, 2013 10:49 p.m. | Whitefish Bay senior Madilyn Garcia admits that last year free throws were not her strong point. She worked at the discipline in the offseason and especially this week in practice.

It certainly paid off for the third-seeded Blue Dukes. The senior guard drilled three of four free throws in the final 36.5 seconds to hold off a pesky sixth seed Wauwatosa West squad, 27-21, in a WIAA Division 2 regional semifinal at Whitefish Bay High School on Friday.

Bay advances to No.2 seeded Wisconsin Lutheran on Saturday.

“I’m not sure why but I shoot free throws better when there is a little more pressure,” said Garcia. “This week we played a lot of free throw games in practice and I did alright.”

Garcia’s free throws were much needed points for Bay (15-8), which struggled offensively for much of the game. Bay made just one basket from the field in the second half.
