Two arrested after allegedly injecting heroin in mall parking lot

May 26, 2009

Two people were arrested for heroin and drug paraphernalia possession after a security guard saw them shooting up in the Mayfair Mall parking lot last week.

According to a Wauwatosa Police Department report:

Officers found 28 small bags of the drug and six syringes in the vehicle at 7 p.m. May 18.

A 17-year-old Hartland boy and a 20-year-old Nashotah man were waiting in the car while a friend shopped in the mall. They decided to "cook" some heroin with a lighter and inject the drugs in their arms.

The man said he had been used heroin three or four times per day and used his unemployment checks to pay for the drugs.

They were referred to the Milwaukee County District Attorney's Office.
