Police Reports: Heroin User Almost Crashes into Sussex Cops
From a high driver almost causing a head-on collision to an evil step-mother accused of killing a Sussex man, these are the most interesting Sussex police reports this week.
The Evil Step-Mother
Monday, July 23 at 11:30 a.m.
A 54-year-old Sussex woman living on the W234N7000 block of Flintlock Drive called police to report a black widow, and not the actual spider. The Sussex woman’s father passed away, and she told police she believed there was foul play. Although the medical examiner’s autopsy was done revealing nothing out of the ordinary, the woman was convinced her step-mother somehow killed her father. Police recorded the tip.
The Burn Ban Wasn’t Lifted!
Wednesday, July 25 at 6:32 p.m.
Police and firefighters rushed to the condos on the W246N6600 block of Pewaukee Road Wednesday after a man failed to obey the mandatory burning ban ordered by the Village of Sussex. It was lifted August 1. The homeowner was grilling when the grill tipped over, causing a grass fire between the condos. The fire was extinguished by Sussex firefighters.
Is This Your Golf Cart? No?
Thursday, July 26 at 1:51 a.m.
Police were called to Waukesha Avenue in Sussex near the railroad crossing after a golf cart was found unmanned in the middle of the street. Deputies called to check with all the area golf courses, but none of them were missing a cart. Police assume it fell out of the back of a delivery truck or off a trailer because the two rear tires were damaged. Just like a car, police called a tow-truck to snag the little cart out of the street.
Thursday, July 26 at 12:15 p.m.
Employees at the Sussex Shopko pharmacy called police Thursday when someone attempted to pass two false prescriptions for pills. The case is still being investigated so police can’t reveal much detail, but what we do know is that nobody is currently in custody and the prescriptions were issued from offices outside of the Milwaukee-metro area.

Who Keyed My Car?

A 34-year-old Milwaukee woman called the cops when she discovered her car keyed in the parking lot of Sharp Packaging, a Sussex business on the W227N6200 block of Sussex Road. The woman is an employee at Sharp and told police someone keyed her car sometime between 6:45 a.m. and 1:45 p.m. There are no suspects, and police say they aren’t likely to find the culprit.
That Heroin User Almost Hit My Squad Car!
Sunday, July 29 at 11:59 p.m.
Sussex police pulled over John Schmittner, 31, on the N65W24800 block of Main Street Sunday after he almost slammed into the side of their squad car with his vehicle. Police say the Hubertus man crossed the center line while driving before getting too close for the cops’ comfort. Officials determined he was under the influence of some substance, and after searching his car, they found heroin and drug paraphernalia. He was arrested for driving under the influence and possession.
