A 40-year-old Port Washington man recently hoped he could score big using the "five-finger discount" method.
While at Sentry after purchasing some items, the man placed two packages of unpurchased Johnsonville brats in a bag of already purchased items.
Staff at the store called him out on this move, and he admitted to attempting to steal the items.
Police were called to the scene at 12:52 p.m. May 22, and issued him a citation for shoplifting.
More from the reports:
- More than a beer run: A 23-year-old Port man was cited for furnishing alcohol to an underage person at 9:20 p.m. May 22, and an 18-year-old Port woman was also cited for underage alcohol consumption. But that's not where the citation party ended: the man was subsequently arrested for disorderly conduct, resisting an officer, criminal damage to property and bail jumping. Buzz kill.
- Perhaps they are town rivals? A 21-year-old Port woman and a 21-year-old Saukville woman were both cited for disorderly conduct after an altercation between the two women in the 200 block of North Franklin Street at 12:07 a.m. May 26.
