Milwaukee Police Department

MILWAUKEE — Officers from District Five of the Milwaukee Police Department arrested two suspects, including a convicted felon, inside a car taken in an armed robbery.

The officers saw the car, a Dodge Caliber, near 1st and Burleigh around 7:50 p.m. on October 8th and recognized it as a vehicle that was previously stolen in an armed robbery in an outside jurisdiction.

The officers attempted to stop the car but the suspects fled in the vehicle and a pursuit was initiated. The car came to a stop near W. Garfield Avenue and  N. Sherman Boulevard and the driver, a 19-year-old Milwaukee man, fled on foot but was quickly taken into custody.

The passenger, a 25-year-old Milwaukee man, was arrested inside the car and was in possession of nearly a gram of cocaine. A loaded semi-automatic pistol, stolen in a burglary in another outside jurisdiction, was located in the car.

The passenger is a convicted felon with a criminal record dating back to 2007 and the driver is currently out on bail for a felon in possession of a firearm case.

MPD will present this case to the Milwaukee County District Attorney’s Office in the coming days for charges.

      Cerry I am delighted by the irony of you saying these guys should have been out getting and education, only using incorrect grammar. Maybe you should take your own advice. “Their(they) should have been out getting a(an)education and a job”. Delicious irony.
