March 16, 2009

An 18-year-old Greenfield man was arrested for attempting to steal a Habitat for Humanity donation bin at Mayfair Mall, 2500 N. Mayfair Road, at 9:17 a.m. Friday.

According to a Wauwatosa Police Department report:

The man dragged the bin into a corridor that runs behind the food court.

From a surveillance video, police saw the man loitering near the bin. He then slowly began to drag the bin about 25 feet.

After dragging it, he sat down on the floor next to it, and tried to open it, but when he was unsuccessful, he continued to drag it into the corridor.
