Village of Hartland


A Johnson Creek man was cited after taking a GPS system from a vehicle in the parking lot at The Phoenix, 129 Cottonwood Ave., at 1 a.m. Aug. 13.

The caller reported that a GPS system was taken from her unlocked vehicle.

Michelle Judkins said she thought two young men who had been at the tavern earlier were responsible for the theft.

Several people described the men as "odd," and they were seen in the lot before the theft was noticed. Witnesses provided police with a description of the vehicle, and based on information from other patrons in the bar, alerted City of Oconomowoc police to the situation.

Oconomowoc police located the vehicle and found the GPS system inside, with a serial number that matched one provided by the victim.

Jeffery R. Alm, 32, of Johnson Creek was cited for theft and driving with a suspended license.


Officers were dispatched to Bark River Park at 4:40 a.m. Aug. 25 in response to a call of a structure fire.

According to the police report, the announcer's booth at the softball diamond was on fire. A driver on Highway 16 observed the flames and notified authorities.

Fire personnel noted that the fire appeared to be an intentional act. It started in the opposite corner from the outlet, and it appeared that some type of accelerant was used to fuel the fire, according to the police report.

Drunken driving

An Oconomowoc man was taken to Waukesha County Jail on Aug. 25 on several charges, including his fourth drunken driving offense.

According to the police report, an officer was northbound on North Avenue at Hartbrook Drive when a southbound vehicle turned on its high beams, and then turned them off as it passed the squad car.

The officer attempted to stop the vehicle, which then pulled into a driveway on North Avenue. The driver got out of the vehicle and ran behind the house in a wooded area. Police located him a short time later.

He was identified as Bruce S. Massick, 45, W346 N5625 Lake Drive, Oconomowoc.

He has been charged with fourth-offense drunken driving, a felony, and misdemeanor counts of obstructing an officer and driving with a revoked license.

He was cited for failing to dim his high beams and having open intoxicants in a motor vehicle.

Village of Pewaukee


Police observed a car parked in the Pick 'n Save lot on Ryan Street after midnight on Sept. 1. The three occupants appeared to be under the influence of drugs, and a pill bottle was in plain view, according to the police report.

A large amount of THC was also apparently found, and two of the occupants were cited.

Stolen truck found

Milwaukee police have found a local man's truck, stolen from the village in July.

The vehicle was reported stolen from the owner's property on Greenhave Court between July 11 and 12. The vehicle, a full-size black 2003 Dodge, was left unlocked in the driveway, with the keys on the front floorboard.

The truck had unique body work: custom flames painted on the hood and sides, two scopes on the top of the hood, 21-inch wheels and tires and a spoiler on the rear tailgate.

Milwaukee police located the truck in an alley near 29th Street in Milwaukee.

The truck was raised on a stand and boards. The doors were locked, and all tires and rims missing. Police took fingerprints and notified the owner.

Assist EMS

The Police Department assisted emergency medical services Aug. 31 when a 20-year-old man passed out at Cost Cutters on Ryan Street.

He was having his hair colored while tipped back in the chair, and he became clammy, with the color draining from his face.

He passed out and the response team transported him to Waukesha Memorial Hospital.
