Convicted Felon Arrested Minutes After Committing Armed Robbery

Milwaukee Police arrested a man wanted for an armed robbery at a West Side business minutes after the crime occurred. District Three officers responded to the Walgreens located at 3522 W. Wisconsin Avenue around 3:35 a.m. on January 10 where an employee told officers that a man came up to the register with items, pointed a knife at her, and fled from the store with those items. Around ten minutes later, officers on patrol near N. 33rd Street and W. State Street saw a man matching the description of the subject. They stopped the man and found several of the stolen items in a Walgreens bag that he had dropped. Officers also located the knife believed to have been used in the crime in a nearby snowbank. The suspect, a 49-year-old Milwaukee man, was taken into custody. He is a convicted felon with a criminal record dating back to 1990. MPD will present this case to the Milwaukee County District Attorney’s Office in the coming days for charges.
