Man 'returns' stolen antifreeze, gets cash rebate
Menomonee Falls - Menomonee Falls police are seeking an unknown man who fraudulently returned two gallons of antifreeze for cash at BP, N71 W13161 Appleton Ave., shortly before 6:45 p.m. Sept. 23.
According to the police log, the gas station clerk called police after the man returned the antifreeze for cash shortly before 6:45 p.m. The clerk told police that he felt the return was suspicious because they don't usually have returns.
Upon reviewing the in-store surveillance video police saw the suspect walk into the store at 6:42 p.m., walk down an aisle and pick up two gallon containers of antifreeze from a shelf, then immediately walk up to the cash register to return them. The clerk didn't see the suspect walk into the store and steal the items, so he gave the suspect a cash rebate.
The suspect is described as a 5-foot, 11-inch tall male weighing 150 pounds and wearing a black coat and blue jeans.
The clerk recorded the license plate number of the suspect's vehicle and police are following up.

Loud muffler leads to arrest and multiple citations

According to the Menomonee Falls police log:
