Milwaukee Police and the community worked together yesterday to get five burglars out of one neighborhood.
On Friday, May 25, 2012, District 7 Police Officers Joseph Sedlacek, Neil Verburgt, Nicholas Federer and Adam Dettman responded to a report of an entry to a home in the 3100 block of N. 35th St. at 2:05 p.m. The suspects entered the victim’s home through a stairwell window and took two televisions without the victim’s consent.
A neighbor saw the suspects in his back yard with the televisions so he followed them and called the police. The suspects ran inside a house as they were being chased by police officers. Five suspects were arrested. The actions of these officers as well as a concerned citizen lead to the capture of burglary suspects – a great example of what can happen when the community and law enforcement work together to reduce crime, fear and disorder.
