leads to arrest
A Milwaukee man who lost his wallet while running away from police in Greenfield was captured the next day after he returned to the area to find it.
The man, whose age was not released by police, is facing multiple charges including vehicle theft and resisting arrest.
According to Greenfield police:
An officer attempted to pull the suspect over on South 27th Street and West Layton Avenue at about 9:40 p.m. June 16, after discovering the license plate on the tan Chevrolet Tahoe he was driving did not match the vehicle and had multiple violations attached to it.
Police later learned that the vehicle was stolen from Diamond Jim's Motor Cars in the 5200 block of South 27th Street.
The suspect, who was the lone occupant, fled the vehicle on foot and ran into a nearby residential area.
The next day, police received a call from a resident in the 2800 block of West Bottsford Avenue, who reported that he found an unknown man coming out of his yard at about 8 a.m.
When the resident asked the man why he was in his yard, the suspect told him he was looking for his wallet, which he said he dropped somewhere in the area at about 10:30 p.m. the night before.
The suspect fled after the resident continued to question him and was last seen running between two houses in the 4200 block of South 27th Street.
The suspect was located in the 3800 block of South 21st Street later that morning and was taken into custody by Milwaukee police.
He was arrested for two counts of resisting, prowling and operating a vehicle without the owner's consent. He was also found to be wanted for a probation/parole violation and was transported to Milwaukee County Jail.
