   • A 49-year-old Port Washington man with an apparent sweet tooth was arrested twice after allegedly stealing candy, cookies and ice cream from two Saukville stores.
    Saukville police said they were notified by the Ozaukee County Sheriff’s Department  on Monday, Sept. 11, that a deputy was in contact with a 49-year-old Port Washington man who admitted to stealing items from Walmart, 825 E. Green Bay Ave.
    Police also contacted the man, who was in the possession of two containers of cookies and a bag of licorice. When asked if he paid for the items, he said, “No, I just walked out with them.”
    Police confirmed through Walmart surveillance that the man stole the items by walking out the front door carrying them. The man was issued a municipal citation for retail theft.
    Two days later, police were called to Piggly Wiggly, 810 E. Green Bay Ave., at 6:51 p.m. for a retail theft investigation. When officers arrived, they were met by the manager who informed them that a white male suspect stole items from the store by concealing them in a stolen Piggly Wiggly shirt, and ran into a swamp north of Market Street.
    The officers found the suspect in the swamp. Although he initially did not comply with the officers’ commands, police were able to handcuff him. The officers recovered stolen ice cream bars, marshmallow dip and a Piggly Wiggly shirt.
    The suspect was identified as the Port Washington man from the Walmart case. He was arrested and taken to the Ozaukee County jail. Charges for retail theft and resisting an officer are being requested through the Ozaukee County District Attorney’s Office.
    • Police were alerted to suspicious activity at Motel 6, 180 S. Foster Dr., by staff at 4:55 p.m. Friday, Sept. 15.
    Police made contact with the driver and passengers of a vehicle seen in the motel parking lot and identified them as a 26-year-old Glendale woman who is wanted by the U.S. Marshals Service, a 26-year-old West Bend woman and a 30-year-old Jackson man who had two warrants through the Germantown Police Department.
    After a police dog indicated there might be drugs in the vehicle, officers searched it and found a crack pipe, two marijuana pipes, hypodermic needles believed to be used for injecting heroin, tin cookers, Chore Boy copper used as a filter, tin foil with a white powdery substance on it that later tested positive for heroin and a blue stretchy tourniquet.  
    More drug paraphernalia was found in the motel room. The man was arrested and taken to the Ozaukee County jail for the two warrants through the Germantown Police Department.
    The 26-year-old Glendale woman was arrested for the warrant through the U.S. Marshals and was taken to the Ozaukee County jail. Charges for possession of heroin and drug paraphernalia are being requested through the Ozaukee County District Attorney’s Office.
    The 26-year-old West Bend woman was arrested and taken to the Ozaukee County jail. Charges for possession of heroin and drug paraphernalia are being requested through the Ozaukee County district attorney’s office.
