Beer Bust: MPD Officer Stops Armed Robbery in Progress

A Milwaukee Police officer on active patrol interrupted an armed robbery in progress in a South Side neighborhood.  The officer from the Neighborhood Task Force was in his squad car near S. 12th Street and W. Greenfield Avenue just before 8:00 p.m. on February 20 when he noticed a pickup truck parked with half the truck on the curb.  Outside of the truck he saw a victim with his hands and arms raised and a suspect heading back to the truck.  The officer followed the truck and pulled it over at which time the victim, a 52-year-old Milwaukee man, approached the officer and said the truck’s driver had just robbed him of his beer and used pliers as a weapon.  The officer found the stolen beer and pliers inside the suspect’s car and the suspect, a 33-year-old man from Houston, Texas, was taken into custody.  MPD will present this case to the Milwaukee County District Attorney’s Office in the coming days.
