A man on Patricia Lane told Waukesha police officers he wished he had his rifle so he could have shot an intruder in his vehicle.
Waukesha police were called to the home in the 2200 block of Patricia Lane at 4:58 a.m. Tuesday after the man said he found a person looking for change in his vehicle when the man stepped outside to walk his dog.
The man was upset about the incident and told police that if he had his rifle, he would have shot and made an example of the thief, according to the Waukesha Police Department’s call log.
Nothing was stolen from the vehicle and Waukesha County Sheriff’s Department believed the suspect had been released from Huber Jail earlier that day.
