Burglar with bad habit steals cameras, smoking cessation aids

March 3, 2009

A burglar took a dozen digital cameras from Walgreens on State Street about 1 a.m. Monday.

According to a Wauwatosa Police Department report:

Security video shows a masked man breaking the lower pane of glass on the exterior and lobby doors and crawling through to the photo department where he crouched down and filled a backpack with items. He also grabbed five packs of smoking cessation aids before exiting, bringing his take to nearly $1,500 in merchandise.

A security guard said this is the latest in a series of about 10 burglaries to Walgreens in the Milwaukee area.
