Men accused of stealing from one Walgreens, arrested at another

Aug. 2, 2012

Two Milwaukee men shoplifted at a Walgreens in Wauwatosa, and were apprehended awhile later after they hit another of the drug store chain's locations in the city.

According to the Wauwatosa police report:

The men, ages 21 and 23, tried to return two fans without a receipt at Walgreens, 2656 Wauwatosa Ave., at 11:20 a.m. July 25. They left and returned, this time heading to the alcohol aisle.

One of the men brought alcohol to the checkout, prompting the clerk to ask for ID.

Meanwhile, the second man pushed a customer aside and got behind the counter, where he took three cartons of cigarettes.

They both grabbed their items and ran out without paying.

Awhile later, an officer was at the Walgreens at 66th and State streets and saw a vehicle that had front-end damage. The men were in the vehicle along with stolen items valued at $752. They were arrested for retail theft and possession of stolen property.
