A resident reported being the victim of a scam after receiving a call saying his grandson was in jail and he needed to send money May 5. The man went to a Walmart and wired $2,500 to the caller.

The caller told the resident he would call again May 6.


4A 29-year-old Milwaukee woman was cited for driving with a suspended license after she reported that an “aggressive dog” jumped into her SUV and it “wouldn’t allow her to enter” in the 500 block of Riverview at 5:08 p.m. May 14. After the dog was removed, police found the steering column peeled and the ignition damaged. They also found that the license plate did not register to the SUV and the SUV was owned by Wisconsin Title Loans. The woman, who had a suspended license and no proof of ownership, said she paid a “guy” $500 as a down payment and needed to pay the rest. The car was towed.
