Tip to Thieves: Steer Clear of Stealing at Police Conference Site

As a couple of would-be thieves made their way into the Italian Community Center yesterday, they may have missed the more than 100 marked and unmarked police vehicles parked in the parking lot.

They may not have taken notice of the 240 retired and on-duty law enforcement officers (many in uniform) milling about the lobby as they attended the Association of SWAT Personnel conference.

But they most certainly¬†saw the officers from the Milwaukee Police Department, Milwaukee County Sheriff’s Office, Waukesha County Sheriff’s Department, Racine Police and Germantown Police who ran after them in hot foot pursuit after the two sneaked into the conference center and attempted to steal a few items from behind a bar when they were caught in the act by employees who alerted the officers – all of them.

The two were arrested and they also were wanted on warrants.
