District Five Officers Arrest Suspects in Stolen Car, Recover Gun and Drugs

Officers from District Five of the Milwaukee Police Department arrested two suspects, including a convicted felon, inside a car taken in an armed robbery. The officers saw the car, a 2012 Dodge Caliber, in the 100 block of E. Burleigh Street around 7:50 p.m. on October 8 and recognized it as a vehicle that was previously stolen in an armed robbery in an outside jurisdiction. The officers attempted to stop the car but the suspects fled in the vehicle and a pursuit was initiated. The car came to a stop in the 2200 block of N. Sherman Boulevard and the driver, a 19-year-old Milwaukee man, fled on foot but was quickly taken into custody. The passenger, a 25-year-old Milwaukee man, was arrested inside the car and was in possession of nearly a gram of cocaine. A loaded semi-automatic pistol, stolen in a burglary in another outside jurisdiction, was located in the car. The passenger is a convicted felon with a criminal record dating back to 2007 and the driver is currently out on bail for a Felon in Possession of a Firearm case. MPD will present this case to the Milwaukee County District Attorney’s Office in the coming days for charges.
