April 4, 2012

A 40-year-old Milwaukee woman was arrested after she was found to have a rock of crack cocaine stashed in her bra when she stole liquor from a Wauwatosa grocery store last week.

According to the Wauwatosa police report:

The woman went through the self-checkout at Metcalfe's Market, 6700 W. State St., but failed to scan six bottles of vodka, a total value of $154, at 12:15 p.m. March 29. She said her pimp told her to steal or he would beat her.

During a search, an officer found she had 0.10 grams of crack cocaine in her bra.

The woman initially gave her sister's name as an alias.
