One Cool Criminal
Tuesday, July 16 at 8:34 a.m.
A Sussex resident living in the apartments on the N64W24100 block of Main Street called police after someone stole his sweet summer relief: an air conditioner. The police report doesn’t list how much the machine was worth, but the owner said it was a brand new air conditioner and was stolen sometime within the previous nine days. Apparently he doesn’t turn it on very often because he wasn’t exactly sure. Police are following up with leads.

One Slow Driver, or…
Friday, July 20 at 7:06 a.m.
A 59-year-old Sussex man living near the corner of Sunset Drive and Pembrooke Way called police after noticing a suspicious driver. Apparently, the person behind the wheel was driving very slowly next to a juvenile walking a dog. Being proactive, the man reported the vehicle in case it was a kidnapper, but police didn’t find anything out of the ordinary.
Addicted to Automobiles
Friday, July 20 at 8:11 a.m.
A 38-year-old Sussex man living on the W233N7000 block of Blacksmith Court called police Friday because he believed someone stole his identity. According to the report, someone used the man’s name and information to purchase three vehicles in another state. Because the alleged crime took place outside of Wisconsin, police are passing the information along to other law enforcement.
