Attention-Seeking Man Texts About Gang Hit; Cat as a Security Guard?

Waukesha Police Department calls from Feb. 18 through Feb. 20.

If you are seeking attention from a woman, a dozen roses just might be a better choice than this young man’s decision.

"A person was arrested after it was reported a man was riding his bike in the middle of the road at 1:56 p.m. Monday at West Moreland and East North Street"..... but the man conspiring to commit a murder was only advised????? is that a joke? great job WPD. If the man riding the bike said he was just doing it for attention would he have been let go too? UNBELIEVBLE.

The call log did not have further details about why the man was arrested, but there are countless reasons a person can be arrested...violating bail...warrants...
Mr. T February 21, 2013 at 06:17 PM
yes, understandable... but last i checked threatening to kill someone is more of a threat than any bail jumping or parole violation

This police dept. needs a major overall! These are some pretty lame reports. How about some real news that people can relate to.

Becky, just wondering, but are you asking for more "interesting" crimes in Waukesha? Or just more flowery prose in the police blotter? :-)
Ash February 22, 2013 at 03:04 PM
Reading the police reports is one of my favorite things about Patch. Please keep it up and thank you :)
P. Bosch February 22, 2013 at 03:40 PM
I totally agree, Ash. Thank you, Sarah!

I agree with Becky somewhat...where are the drug busts? Where are the reports of domestic violence? Certainly we should have more drunk driving arrests! What are all these police doing with their time?! Don't get me wrong, I enjoy reading the police reports to keep up on the community! But the police won't even take tips seriously. I have a drug dealer living across the street from me...but the police blew me off. I've tried a couple times to impart info to better the community and always get ignored. I want the drugs out of my nice Wauksha neighborhood.

I couldn't agree more, it seems like the bare minimum (if that) is posted on here. Nothing has been updated since Thursday. We would all like to wish no crime has occurred since then, but we all know that isn't the case
