Crime Update: Business Burglaries

There have been several burglaries to local businesses in the last couple of weeks.

From the South Milwaukee Police Department and Nextdoor …

In the past week South Milwaukee has had 2 burglaries to local businesses. The first occurred on 1/21/17 at 3:59am at the Citgo “You Pump” Gas station on 10th Ave & Manitoba Ave. The second occurred last night (1/25/17) at 2:39am at Marquette Liquor in the 1100blk of Marquette Ave. Both incidents were done by the same crew of 3 males. The males appear to be in their 20’s, unknown race at this time. Video shows this group makes entry through breaking windows on the businesses. Large quantities of cigarettes and liquor were taken during these two incidents. It is believed that this same group is responsible for a number of these burglaries in southeastern WI. These 3 males are organized and efficient, and most likely will keep doing these burglaries until they are caught.
The SMPD urges you to call if you see anything suspicious in you neighborhoods. You are our eyes and ears out there, and anything could break these cases wide open. The SMPD is actively following leads in both cases. I will update if and when arrests are made. … 

The Aurora Pharmacy, 2414 10th Ave, was burglarized on 1/29/17 sometime between 3:45am and 4:15am. The SMPD is currently investigating several leads in this case. That is all we can disclose at this time.

    Any updates on the string of burglaries and break-ins from this past summer in SM and OC? How is the SM police department addressing the issue? Are they increasing any patrols?
