A car stopped for an unusually long time on West Dekora Street near West Hillcrest Road made Saukville police suspicious in the late hours of June 12, prompting a patrol car to turn around and approach the vehicle.
The vehicle pulled away and police followed it, noting it was speeding and twice crossed the dividing line.
A stop was made at 12:28 a.m. and the driver, identified as a 44-year-old Brookfield man, had three occupants in the car, including a 16-year-old in the back seat.
Police detected the smell of alcohol on his breath while noting his eyes were glassy and his responses to questions were slow and deliberate.  
When asked why he was stopped at the stop sign for so long, the man informed police that one of the subjects in the vehicle had been urinating on the side of the road at that location, causing him to wait.
The man admitted to having a few drinks earlier in the day and agreed to perform standardized field sobriety tests, ultimately failing them.  
The man also agreed to perform a preliminary breath test, which had a reading of .12.  
The driver was arrested and taken to Aurora Medical Center in Grafton for a legal blood draw, and was then transported to the Ozaukee County Jail.  
He faces charges for first-offense operating while intoxicated and for the same with a passenger 16 or under in the vehicle.
n  At 6:37 p.m. on June 4, police were called to Piggly Wiggly for a report of a retail theft. While en route, they were advised that a store employee had followed the suspect out of the store and got a vehicle description and license plate number.
The suspect was later identified as a 34-year-old Fredonia man who store employees said ordered two packages of chicken, wrapped only in butcher paper, from the meat department. He was seen placing the packages in his pants in the freezer aisle.
He then checked out, paying only for a frozen pizza. Police made contact with the man at his residence, and he told them he had left the packages in the store’s cheese department.
However, the store reported that they were not found there. The man was arrested for retail theft and bail jumping, due to open cases of retail theft in Washington County.  
n At 2:58 p.m. on June 5, police approached a 48-year-old Saukville man who was leaning up against his pickup truck, which was parked very close to the fog line on West Dekora Street, near Dekora Woods Boulevard.
Police observed he had constricted pupils and glassy eyes. When he spoke, he slurred his words and was either slow or unable to answer questions.
He admitted he had been drinking and agreed to perform field sobriety tests, but opted out after the first one, saying he knew he’d fail.
A preliminary breath test was conducted with a reading of .189 ­— more than twice the legal limit. The man was arrested for first-offense operating under the influence.
n At 12:59 a.m. on June 9, police pulled over a car on East Green Bay Avenue at South Riverside Drive that was traveling at 40 mph in a 25-mph zone.
The driver was identified as a 20-year-old Port Washington man and smelled of marijuana, but he denied having any drugs in the vehicle.
A search of the center console produced two bags of a green leafy substance believed to be marijuana. Also found was a metal tin containing 200 milligrams of THC-edible hash and a substance believed to be hash oil on three items.
The man was arrested, and the green leafy substance later tested positive for the presence of THC.  Charges for possession of THC drug paraphernalia are being sought.
n At 5:46 p.m. on June 10, police were called to Walmart for a report of a retail theft that had just occurred. Ozaukee County Dispatch advised that the suspect vehicle had just left, but a male and a female who were seen with the suspect were now walking toward the Mobil Gas Station. They were identified as a 24-year-old Milwaukee woman and a 37-year-old Milwaukee man. They said their friend, a 39-year-old Milwaukee man, had been in the store but they did not go in with him.  
The store advised police that the subject  concealed two items in his jeans and walked out of the store without paying. Employees confronted the man, who then ran to his vehicle and drove off. In reviewing more surveillance footage, it was found that the man had stolen other items before being observed. Police were able to get the man’s phone number and he said he would return to Walmart to meet them to return the items, which he did.  The man had stolen a pair of dice, a scissors, a deck of cards and a dog shock collar.  
The man was issued a municipal citation for retail theft.
n At 11:10 p.m. on June 12, the driver of a car on Green Bay Avenue at Market Street told police when stopped that he knew he did not have a valid driver’s license. Records showed the 22-year-old Milwaukee man had two previous charges in 2017 for operating without a license.
Meanwhile his passenger, a 22-year-old Milwaukee woman, had an open warrant through the Mequon Police Department and was also listed as a missing person through Milwaukee Police Department.  
The man was arrested for third-offense operating after revocation.
n At 10:35 p.m. on June 14, police stopped a car at West Dekora and Railroad streets for an expired registration.
The driver was identified as a 37-year-old Saukville man who had a cancelled license from Wisconsin and a current New York license that was revoked with a restriction for requiring an ignition interlock device. His vehicle did not have one.
He was arrested for OUI-related operating after revocation and failure to install an ignition interlock device.
n At 1:40 p.m. on June 22, police responded to a theft reported at Walmart.
The store said two subjects drove to the back of the store where used batteries are kept in a locked cage and cut the chain, removing 130 motorcycle batteries valued at $1,300.
The subjects were identified as a 50-year-old West Allis man and a 48-year-old West Allis woman. Charges for theft of movable property are being requested against the two through the Ozaukee County District Attorney Office.
n At 9:28 p.m. on June 25, a motorist was stopped in the 500 block of Green Bay Avenue for a revoked driver’s license.
The driver was identified as a 25-year-old West Bend man, who had a working ignition interlock device in the vehicle and a valid occupational driver’s license. However, he was operating outside of his allowed hours.  
He was arrested for operating while with an OUI-related revoked license.
n At 2:12 a.m. on June 27, police observed that a car on West Hillcrest Road at South Colonial Parkway had a defective passenger-side taillight. The driver was a 35-year-old Saukville woman and her passenger a 38-year-old West Bend woman. The driver stated she just became aware that her taillight was out. Police observed a strong odor of intoxicants emanating from her breath, slurred speech and bloodshot and glassy eyes. The woman stated she did not have  too much to drink and then said she had only had a Bloody Mary. She failed a field sobriety test and her breath test resulted in a reading of 0.14.
She was arrested for first-offense operating while intoxicated.
