An unfortunate miscommunication and a hysterical 13-year-old girl left a Waukesha mother thinking her 10-year-old daughter was dead.
The mother called police at 7:47 p.m. Thursday to the 2400 block of Fox River Parkway after her daughter called stating that her other daughter was found deceased. When police responded to the residence, they found a 13-year-old girl who was hysterical about the death of their cat, who had a similar-sounding name as the younger sister. When the girl called her mother, the names were miscommunicated.
Despite a Starbucks employee's best efforts to help police catch a thief, an unknown woman still walked away with about $5 when she stole a tip jar at 4:39 p.m. Thursday.
Starbucks employees reported another employee followed the woman to nearby Subway. She continued to walk past the Speedway gas station but was not located. The suspect was described as a white woman in her mid-20s with brown hair and a gray knit hat, carrying a purse with a longer handle, and also wearing a gray winter jacket and dark pants.
