Books & Company robbed in Oconomowoc
At 2:35 today, Police Chief David Beguhn said officers responded to a call from Books & Company in Witman Park. The bookstore had been robbed.
A woman entered the store and made verbal threats and left with cash, an undisclosed amount at this time. No weapon was visible, according to Beguhn.
The woman then left in a brown 1998 Toyota Camry, four door. There were three other men inside the vehicle, which left south bound from the parking lot.
Books and Company is a small, independently-owned and community-based bookstore that's been serving the Oconomowoc, Lake Country and Waukesha areas since 1983.
The matter is under investigation. A future news release will be posted at Living Lake Country.
