MILWAUKEE (WITI) — Milwaukee police were able to arrest a suspect immediately after he tried to break into a west side business.
Officers responded to the business in the 900 block of N. 27th Street shortly after 3:15 a.m. on Sunday, May 10th.
Responding officers were notified a man in a black hooded sweatshirt and black pants was using a cement block to try to break the front door.
Police found the suspect immediately and also noticed damage to the front door.
The suspect, a 22-year-old Milwaukee man was taken into custody and later confessed to the crime.

Charges will be presented to the Milwaukee County District Attorney’s Office soon.
