Knife, Crack Pipe Found on Alleged Vodka Thief

A man who allegedly stole four bottles of vodka from CVS last week had more than a retail theft citation to be worried about.

When Fox Point police arrested a 37-year-old Milwaukee man for stealing vodka from CVS Pharmacy last week, they also found a crack pipe in his hand and a small blade tucked under his sweatshirt.

According to the police report, CVS employees saw the man steal four bottles of vodka from the store at 4:29 p.m. on Jan. 27. Fox Point police later pulled over the suspect vehicle on Good Hope Road as it was merging onto the southbound I-43 ramp.

The man driving the vehicle told police he did not know what his passenger – the alleged thief – had done, until the traffic stop. When police pulled the vehicle over, the passenger started hiding liquor bottles in the back seat. 

Police found a crack pipe in the passenger's right hand, which had been pushed up his sweatshirt sleeve. Police also found a 5-5/8” blade tucked in the front of his sweatshirt. 

The man was cited for retail theft, carrying a concealed weapon without a permit and possession of drug paraphernalia.
