MILWAUKEE — A man charged in connection with the theft of packages from a Walker’s Point apartment building and a gas station robbery has been sentenced to prison.

Prosecutors say he stole packages from a Walker’s Point apartment building (Trio Apartments near 1st and Washington) in November of 2017, and less than a week later, he was accused of making off with money and cigarettes after nudging a gas station cashier with a gun in Mequon. He was eventually found hiding behind a dumpster and a Taser had to be used in order to take him into custody.
